Every May the city of Memphis puts on a month long celebration with a lot of VERY cool events. Last year we went for the International Rib Cook Off, this year is was the Beale Street Music Festival. My dad and my oldest sister, Marla came along to visit Denise for the 1st time.
I was SO excited about Beale Street Music Fest because its a huge outdoor park with 3 different stages going at the same time with great headline acts! We saw Jacks Mannequin, Katy Perry, Steve Miller Band and my fav... All American Rejects! They were SO GOOD!
Thats the mighty Miss-is-sip in the background
When you're in the south it would practically be a crime if you didn't stop for some world famous BBQ!
As kids I used to make fun of my sister and call her "Mother Nature" because she thought she was ruler of all animals. She was always much more interested in the 4-H thing than me and she still is. She has a regular little funny farm in TN. Its not like working part time as an OR nurse, raising 2 kids, taking care of 4 acres and house with a husband who travels all the time is enough. No, she wants all the animals she can have.
Her husband, Pete took advantage of having my dad there to help fix the riding lawn mower. I think it was some kind of bonding.
