A busy weekend

Whew! What a great weekend. We had lots of fun with Brian, Candy and Colton. And we packed in as much as we could!
Friday night we just cooked out at home and played around the house. We played pool and watched some cartoons! I didn't get any pictures from Friday - it was low key but we ate lots and visited lots.
We started Saturday morning pretty early. We had breakfast -- a delicious breakfast casserole {It's Candy's recipe and I'm going to post it later} and some breakfast potatoes. Then we all got ready. The guys headed to play golf and the girls and little man headed to Graceland! Keith refuses to go but I must say I was pleasantly surprised -- it's really neat.
This is a picture of the front of the house. I took about 436 billion pictures so I'm going to do a whole post tomorrow so I can share all the goodness with you! I know you all are dying to see inside of Elvis' house!
After Graceland we met up with Keith and Brian and headed downtown. We were running late so Keith and I dropped them off at The Peabody so they could run inside to watch the famous duck walk at 5pm while we parked the car. It's a big to-do. Every day at 5pm they put on this big presentation and walk the ducks from the fountain in the lobby {where they hang out all day} down a red carpet and into the elevator to go up to the roof where they spend the night. Then they bring them back down in the mornings and repeat the process everyday. It's really neat and I would suggest everyone see it at least once!
Then we just headed towards Beale St. We passed the baseball park on the way. It's a really nice ball park.
Spotted this cutie just hanging out!
They weren't playing so we were able to go in and take some pictures in front of the field.


Then we headed over eat dinner!

Then we went back up to the roof of The Peabody to take some pictures of the sunset.
The mighty Mississippi River.

Where the ducks hang out on the roof.
After that we headed home and we were beat! I don't have any pictures from Sunday but we didn't do much. We went by my work so we could send them home with lots of goodies and then we ate lunch and they hit the road. It was great weekend and we hope they'll be back very soon!
Graceland pics coming tomorrow -- be prepared for a lot of pictures!
