Spring Break!

We kicked off Spring Break week with a trip to Memphis to spend the night and go to a Memphis Grizzlies game.  We had a great time and had our camera phones clicking......

Happy kids on the way to Memphis!  Matt had his "ears" on watching his DVD. 

 Our first stop was Kohl's in Southaven.  Matt bought an Iron Man figure with some of his saved Christmas money.

 The next stop after lunch was Target.  As you can see, Matt is a big super hero fan.  Here he is trying on a Captain America helmet.

 His next purchase with his money was this super hero DS game.

 The kids were so cute carrying their luggage through the hotel.  They loved punching the elevator buttons and looking out over the lobby as we rode the elevator.

 McKenzie loves hotels!  We noticed this note she wrote before we left.  Bless her heart!

 Monday night we went to the FedEx Forum to watch the Memphis Grizzlies play the Los Angeles Clippers.

 Matt was a complete nut at the game.  He danced to the music and had a great time.  I told him before the game about Blake Griffin, who is the best player on the Clippers and makes amazing dunks almost every game.  During the pre-game warm-ups, Matt asked me, "Which one is the Amazing Dunker?".  He kept calling Griffin "The Amazing Dunker" the rest of the night.

 Matt loves waffles!  Tuesday morning we went to our favorite breakfast place in Memphis - Miss Polly's on Beale St.

 McKenzie looks excited about her breakfast, too!

 Tuesday included another trip to Target and Matt spending the last of his Christmas money on a Buzz Lightyear car.

 At lunch we met Betty's Aunt Melba and cousin Elizabeth and her daughter, Kendall.  Kendall was a hoot, going nuts for her food and laughing at everybody!  We had a great time visiting with them!
 After lunch we went to Barnes & Noble where McKenzie used some of her own saved money to buy a few books........

......meanwhile, Matt was break dancing and teaching a new friend some moves in the children's section.

We had a great time and I can't believe the week is almost over already.  I hate that the kids have to go back to school already.
