    Well it took me FOREVER to get the time to load these pics, but I FINALLY got it done! I meant to get pics of the casino's and the hotel room, but forgot... However, we just received 3 Complimentary nights stay at the hotel we stayed at for each of us!! They exspire 1/19/2009, so we are hoping to get to go back and use them before then, and this time I will take TONS of pics! We plan on giving the extra free room to a couple of our friends... so it should be a really wild trip LOL!

    Anyways, here are a few of my fav pics!

    These next pics are from Graceland! My Mother was always a HUGE Elvis fan, therefore, I grew up on his music and movies, so it was a real treat for me to get to go to Graceland. Mind you... these aren't even HALF of the pics I took! They wouldn't allow us to use the flash on our camera's, so I apologize if some of the pics are blurry. I will try to describe where/what each pic is. When we toured Graceland they gave us headphones where we could listen to what each room was and specific details (so you will see Hubby in a few pics with headphones on).

    And this I thought was particularly neat... it is the brick columns of the gates to Graceland where people have wrote on them for years and years.

    WOW That is so cool! I especially like the peacock stained glass windows. That would be so fun to go there,
    Oh, in the one aquarium picture, is that a seaturtle in the corner of the tank?

    Thanks everyone! Yeah, we really enjoyed it! Goodness it is expensive to tour Graceland though.... the most expensive package was $67 per person! (of course that isn't the package we picked)... but I think once is enough to do use for quite some time :greengrin: However.... I DO plan on us going back to Tunica VERY soon! That was such a blast! We slept late everyday and got a HUGE hotel room with a jacuzzi and everything.
