Over the Weekend

Most Memphians took the weather this past weekend as a reason to stay inside, but not us. First thing, we hopped in the car to let the dogs play in the ice/snow on Mud Island. Unfortunately, I was not equipped for the wind coming off the river so I jumped right back in the car with our tenderfoot canines. All was not lost though, Peter decided to skate in the parking lot in lieu of a frozen pond.

When we got home I was surprised to see that a package had arrived. We weren't expecting anything so my curiosity was peaked. Unexpected packages are so much fun! We opened it to find a wedding present from two of my dear friends, A and C; four beautiful mugs from Chilmark Pottery on Martha's Vineyard. Lovely .

By this time we were both getting a bit hungry. Peter was adamant about going to Qdoba to use his "soon to expire" coupon. We got a Craft 2 and a couple drinks for $3.26! The coupon certainly helped justify the drive to Germantown as did our next venture to Shelby Farms.

Surely we could not pass up the chance to snap a few Winter Wonderland pictures while so close to the Farms; I took a good bit more than are posted but these are either {1} favorites or {2} pictures of us, which have been requested by out of town family.


  1. BEAUTIFUL picture of you, Parker!!! BEAUTIFUL!!!!

  2. I agree - you are so beautiful! (so are your shots of the farm)
