A Taste of Memphis

Like last year for Thanksgiving, we found ourselves in Memphis, celebrating the holiday with Jared's side of the family. The Thanksgiving meal itself deserves its own separate blogpost and so does Graceland. However, due to lack of time, I've thrown in a few pictures from the weekend. We had a GREAT time!!!

Here's Jared and I at Graceland. This was Jared's 4th visit (someone loves Elvis!) It's actually pretty expensive (I thought) so this will probably be my first and only visit. It was neat though!

Here we are on Beale Street. Jared and I just walked around after visiting Graceland. It was a fun & free date...the best kind!

Here's a snapshot from the park where Noah met up with all of his cousins and his great grandma Gorden.

Other than Thanksgiving, Graceland, Beale Street, and the park, we had fun relaxing, watching movies & spending time with family (all of Jared's brothers and sisters drove up with us---and we all stayed in the same house. It was something like 21 people in one house. Yes, it was crazy!) We also went out to dinner at my favorite BBQ place, Corkys, went shopping, and out to eat some more. Jared and I participated in the madness known as BLACK FRIDAY and scored a computer at a GREAT bargain! It was so fun- we loved it (this was the first time I've ever woken up early for it). You can't beat saving 400 dollars on something you were going to buy anyways!
More pictures and stories to come- check back soon! :)

I didn't know that you got a new computer!! What a steal! Looks like Memphis was so much fun. We went to Memphis but didn't know about Beale street. How did we miss this?!
