Wedding weekend in Memphis

Bryan, Jenni and I headed to Memphis on Friday evening. We arrived about 11pm at the hotel, unpacked and had a midnight snack. Lisa, Linda and her boys arrived a couple of hours later. I'm not sure Jenni has ever been to Memphis. Saturday we went to eat at Hueys downtown, walked around the Peabody, Beale Street, saw Sun records and showed Jenni where we used to live. Josh's family was not able to join us this trip - they are battling the flu at their house. We will have to plan a trip to the Memphis zoo with them in the spring.

Saturday evening we met up with family for our cousin Megan's wedding. The wedding was beautiful and Megan made a gorgeous bride. The reception was held at the Memphis Water Works, which is a great location. There was fabulous music provided by the Medders band (minus Carson-the groom) and the food was warm and delicious. It was great to get to see and hang out with all my cousins, aunts and uncles. Congratulations Megan and Carson!

We stopped by Graceland on our way out of town on Sunday. The lines were long to tour the mansion, and the gift shops were busy. Jenni is only 21, and she was amazed by the whole Elvis phenomenon. They have one shop, completely devoted to the 1968 Comeback Special. She kept saying "all this for one guy?". I guess it is hard to imagine, when you are her age. We had lunch at the diner and then headed back to Nashville.

Great weekend!
