Our team played in the Liberty Bowl in Memphis so we all hit the road after our Christmas celebrations!
This girl was super excited!
They spent quite a while creating sun barriers for the windows so they could take a "nap" since we left so early!
After we arrived and checked in at our hotel, we headed to this awesome Bass Pro Shops! It was shaped like a pyramid!
Inside you can ride up in this huge tower for a view from the top!
Here we are riding up!
The kids had a blast doing this.

There was this little rooftop restaurant we walked through.
That's the glass elevator in the background- so neat!
We headed back down and just explored- it was huge and so unique!
Not like any Bass Pro we've ever seen.
There was even this little pond inside with real fish!
Of course we have to do some shooting while at Bass Pro!
Daddy is just as into it as the kids! Ha!
I mean, cool, right?
Love this little Cyclone
Love this guy too!
Of course checking out the big aquarium and all the fish!
Someone was all tuckered out from exploring and it was getting super late and we tried to eat dinner in the Fish bowl restaurant but it was a long wait so we headed to Cracker Barrel.
Chocolate chip pancakes for dinner makes this guy pretty happy!
I think Kerigan barely made it through dinner without falling asleep!
They crashed back at the hotel! They wanted to have a sleepover. So sweet!
The next morning we were all up bright and early for the Cyclone pep rally!
Andrew is our loyal Cyclone fan, even though we live in Hawkeye country!
This girl has been a little brainwashed by our neighbors, her classmates and friends but being at the game certainly helped her realize the Cyclones are pretty awesome!
We talked about being fans of both teams, and she's good with that!
Eating a hot dog with Daddy!
Can't get enough of that toothless grin!
She was a fan :)
This guy enjoyed his popcorn with Ga Ga
Here comes the team!
The rally got everyone excited for the game the next day!

After the rally we looked up places to eat in Memphis and found this gem...
We could not get enough of this fun place!
They bring you straws and toothpicks to literally blow the toothpicks onto the ceiling!
The kids just had an absolute blast
Even the adults got in on the fun! Ha ha!
If you're ever in Memphis, you must visit this place!
Kerigan's face says it all!
Not only was it fun, the food was delicious too!
I'm telling you these two were so bummed we can't go here every day. They cannot wait to go back. Andrew even saved a toothpick and it has a place of honor on his shelf! We will always remember the fun at Huey's!
