I attended a Christian conference in Southhaven, MS Friday night and Saturday morning with some friends. Ben decided to bring the boys and meet me in Memphis for the weekend. This would be our last getaway before we headed back to school and harvest began.
Ben and the boys drove in Friday night and he took them to his favorite Memphis BBQ restaurant, the Rendezvous.
Saturday morning Ben took the boys to the Memphis Zoo while they waited for me to get out of my conference.
Davis and Wilson loved the birds
Saturday afternoon we took the family to a Redbirds game.
Wilson enjoyed cotton candy, popcorn, and ice cream for dinner that night.
I know...parents of the year!
Popcorn can be counted as a vegetable, right?
It was extremely hot. Memphis in July isn't much to be desired.
But we managed to have fun!
Leaving the park, I tried to take a boys standing at the entrance.
Can you find them?
Before we left Memphis Sunday morning, we stopped for brunch at Brother Juniper's. Ben had read about it on roadfood.com and I am so glad that he did. It was excellent!

Just a little FYI, Rachael Ray made a stop there for breakfast on one of her shows.
