We went through Little Rock, husband Bob's home during his growing up years. We showed the two boys their Granddaddy's boyhood home and school and ate frozen yogurt in the shopping area where he roamed as a boy. Then we went on to Memphis, where we spent the night, visiting Graceland the next day.
We had lunch in Nashville, across from the Vanderbilt campus, and saw the lovely replica of the Parthenon in a park nearby.
Our next overnight was in Louisville, where Bob and I lived for three years in our early-marriage days. We saw the school where I began my teaching career, and then visited the campus of the seminary where Bob studied. Next we visited the fascinating Louisville Slugger museum, which the baseball playing boys loved! The next day we journeyed on to Portage, MI, where they live. Temps were in the 70s!
