Memphis!

This year has been a pretty amazing trip so far, since no one has gotten sick (yet, knock on wood), and we get to stay almost four weeks. That meant we were able to fit in a trip to Memphis without much trouble at all, to go see my best friend and her family, and other college friends.
 
We stopped in Sikeston on the way down, and saw the highlight of Frédéric's trip this year:
 

Here's to twenty-five years of friendship! And many more to come. Our kids got along great, which was a nice bonus.

Kayla drew a picture of her new friends Benjamin and Noah. This is Benjamin, and "Noah is behind him." Hee hee.

We visited the Memphis Botanical Gardens on Saturday, and the zoo on Sunday. We really liked both.

The kids' favorite part of the zoo was the playground.





And this was my favorite part of the drive home. Sadly, it only lasted about fifteen minutes. He has a quick-recharging battery.

A belated Welcome Home!
Glad your trip was uneventful and you are able to fit in the road trip. We were in Memphis a few times but always missed the zoo (specially the pandas).
Have an enjoyable visit with family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving and Early Merry Christmas ;-)
Best regards,
