Over the 4th of July weekend we all piled into the car and took a little road trip to see the pyramids!
Well, one pyramid…in Memphis…that’s also a giant Bass Pro and a hotel! We went to Memphis to see Lyndsay’s new house and stayed in the Big Cypress Lodge that is inside the Bass Pro. Yep, the hotel is inside the store and the balconies of the rooms overlook the store! It was really cool and the kids thought it was awesome obviously!
Our room was a giant suite and really, really nice! I did sort of feel like I was in Vegas though because there are no outside windows so you don’t know if it’s day or night!
We ended up eating there the first night because our babysitter had gotten delayed because of a little hospital stay!! Don’t worry, GJ is fine and they came on to Memphis the next day. But, since we had no sitters, the kids came to dinner with us and Lyndsay and Phillip at the restaurant on top of the pyramid – which you get to by riding the largest free-standing glass elevator in the world. The elevator was…well…like an elevator ride! But the views from the top were pretty great…wish I could say the same thing about our food.
By that night, everyone was worn out from our Bass Pro adventures!
More Memphis fun tomorrow!
