Walkin' in Memphis - Day 3 - Downtown

Today Janelle, Sarah and I explored downtown. We had a great time eating lunch at Huey's, taking a peak at Beale Street and walking along the Mississippi River on Mudd Island. My time here is going by really fast!! Today Sarah let me hold her for awhile, that was a fun moment. Sarah prefers her momma, so there isn't a lot of lap time, but i get all kinds of smiles whenever I talk to her, so we are for sure friends! (Buster on the other hand is more than happy to sit in my lap!) We had dinner at Corky's BBQ, which was excellent. Now we are just chillin' in the living room, getting ready to watch a movie. Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings! 

Who could help but love this baby?!

Walkin' in Memphis - Day 2 - Memphis Botanic Gardens

Today we spend the afternoon at Memphis Botanic Garden, it was a little early in the season for some flowers, but it was still very pretty. We had a great time walking around and enjoying the weather. Sarah sat up in her stroller like a big girl! She did a great job, although there was a time or two that she got annoyed with us. So much fun to just hang out and have good girl time. 

Sitting up like a big girl!

Walkin' in Memphis - Day 2 - Buster

Meet Buster the Boxer. He is my newest fur friend! We have met before, but this is the first time we have really hung out and got to know each other. Now we are buddies! Buster is a sweetheart who has NO idea that hes a bit large to be a lapdog. I'm laying on the couch watching tv on my laptop. Suddenly there is a small calf.. err, i mean a boxer, making room for himeslf next to me on the couch. Except there isn't room, so he just tries to take a nap on me instead. I've also found he likes to "sneak" into bed for cuddles. Except he isn't very stealthy! Buster, please don't tell the crash cat i'm cheating on him with a dog. I'll be in soooo much trouble!

Walkin' in Memphis - Day 2

Starting out the day...

Today we are going downtown and to the botanical gardens. But first Sarah needs a nap. So mamma and aunt Dori are catching up on facebook, email, blogs and tv episodes. I'm enjoying a few days with no deadlines to meet and no schedule to manage and keep up with.

In the meantime Tom is playing host for our great friends, Eric & Karen. I'm so bummed to have both these fun weekends happen at the same time. But so goes life sometimes. Rumour has it that Tom may also be painting the master bathroom this weekend if there is time. Best Husband Ever.
