When You're in Memphis...

...you have to do two things:

1. Eat authentic Memphis barbecue at a hole-in-the-wall restaurant.

2. Go to Graceland.

Check.


and Check.

Well, kind of. Graceland actually costs $27 (at the cheapest rate) so we checked out the gift shops, took pictures at the entrance, and peeped over fences at Elvis' famed mansion. And paid $8 to park. But it was worth it.

I've had a trip to Tennessee planned for work for months now, and when Jamie found that out she was immediately intrigued by the idea of a ROAD TRIP after her visit to Bloomington. It has been great to have her along for the ride, and I'll be sad to take off from Nashville without her tomorrow!

I SOOOOOOOO want to visit Memphis sometime. I have heard the food is amazing, and well...I'm all about food! Oh, and sweet tea.

Looks like you two had a blast! I loved traveling with Jason when I was pregnant with Jack - we LOVED his road trips!
