1: We rode a bus, got ice cream, went to jail, crossed the street to go to church, and walked through Birmingham Civil Rights Institute all in one day with no major issues! Now, THAT is saying something. | Birmingham | Day 1:
3: Memphis | Our next stop was Graceland, where we got to see Elvis's awards, outfits, house, planes, bar fights (if you know what I mean), and much more. | Orange T-shirt Day! | Day 2:
4: The food at B.B. King's was amazing, not to mention the BROWNIES afterward! | We then walked to the Gibson guitar factory where we got to see how guitars were made....and played. | ;)
5: Across the street was the Rock and Soul Museum. It was very interesting to walk around in, and we picked out phrases to include in Maggie and Madison's "Hound Dog" remix!
6: As everyone agreed, the riverboat was the highlight of the day. Everyone got all spiffied up for this. That night was gorgeous, perfect for dancing and having fun. Plus, there were tons of picture opportunities.
7: Say Cheese!
8: We also went to the zoo, where we rode camels and walked around in the hot sun. It was OK, though, because soon we were in | the safety of Memphis Civil Rights Museum/Lorraine Motel.
10: The Peabody Hotel Ducks' performance was short and sweet, especially compared to how long we had to wait for them. We made sure that everyone who walked on the red carpet felt special by clapping for them, even some of the guests that were just trying to get to their rooms!
11: Next was supper at Hard Rock and a stroll down Beale and other streets to Maggie Moo's,and later to Jefferson Davis Park. We rested there for a few minutes, knowing what was coming up next...
12: THE TALENT SHOW!
14: For lunch, we ate at the Old Spaghetti Factory. It was a very ornate restaurant.
15: After eating the wonderful meal, we traveled to the Grand Ole Opry. We received a backstage tour, along with the chance to sing and dance on the stage. It was a great experience for the whole group! | "Row ,row, row your boat..."
16: The trip to the RCA Studio B was a very inspiring trip because most of us were allowed to play on Elvis' Baby Grand Piano.
17: Our trip to Memphis was a great experience because it brought everyone closer together. There may have been a few mishaps, but it all worked out fine!
