Our reason for visiting Memphis was really for a family reunion of sorts. Most years my grandmother attends Elvis Week with her cohort of impersonators, and I have always wanted to go and see the insanity. My mother, stepfather, brother, sister, nieces, nephew, and great-aunt and great-uncle all decided to converge in Memphis at the same time, mostly to visit with my grandmother, but also because Elvis Week is fun!

We stayed the first two nights at the RV park with my family before moving to a hotel after they had left. We got to tour Graceland, walk Beale Street, eat BBQ, and visit this weird place called The Pink Palace, a never-inhabited mansion built by the owner of Piggly Wiggly which was eventually turned into a very weird museum after he went bankrupt.
