A Very Long Post!!!!!

 Well, as we do every year, Claire reunited with Mary Grace, whom we usually go see on the way to the beach ....This year, we took MG home with us on the way back from the beach!  We had her the entire week, and her parents came halfway through the week to see Memphis!  We all had a blast!  Claire and MG had lots of fun and were entertained every step of the way!
 The girls at the Zoo in teh China exhibit...MG loved seeing pandas for the first time!!
 The Hixons loved Jerry's.......the Hollingsworths too!
 We were tourists this week...even forced Lance to Mud Island!!

 Oh yes, we even went to Hard Rock......
 Claire and MG learning not to enter the yard with Jesse without some protection!

 Lego fun at the Children's Museum!
 A disappointed Jesse that they didn't have "fancier" lego parts......

 Rubbing the Budda at the zoo!
 Panda pose.....

 Claire decided her favorite part of Graceland was the cute pink jeep....

 Yes, even I went to Graceland.  We acted like total tourists...and had a ball!
 Ready for their tour!

 Gretch was here!!!
 Even we had not been to this restaurant...and yes it was Happy!
 MG seeing those Peabody Ducks.....who knew the Peabody is packed at 4pm on a Thursday!

We are so blessed to allow Claire some time with one of the few connections she has to her birthplace....and are blessed they are close enough to us to do so!  We hope the girls get together yearly to continue their bond!
