Saturday was my "birthiversary".  I celebrated my thirty-eleventh birthday and mine and Betty's 17th anniversary.  We decided to take the whole family to Memphis for the day to celebrate.  We went to one of our favorite restaurants for lunch - The Arcade.

We've never gotten to sit at Elvis' table because someone is always sitting there.  Someone was there again today when we got there, but I did get to take this picture of Matt after they left.  I haven't gotten up the courage to order the fried peanut butter and banana sandwich yet, though.

Next we headed to Target.  I'll let you guess whether this part was celebrating my birthday or our anniversary.

After Target, we went to one of our new favorite Memphis stops - Gigi's Cupcakes.

I got the wedding cake cupcake in honor of our anniversary!

Next up was the movie, Tangled.  It was pretty good for an animated kids movie - a lot better than I was anticipating.  The kids loved it and we even got to see Santa!

Our final stop was the Side Porch Steakhouse.  Betty and I have been back there for our anniversary several times and it is wonderful every time.
 The food was great as usual and they had the place decorated for Christmas.  They even had a Christmas tree inside with a train under it.  Guess where Matt went?

Matt hooked the train cars together and even crawled under the bench and behind the tree and fixed the track!
