Graceland

Sunday after our last game, we headed to Graceland. I couldn't imagine being 15-20 minutes from there and just not going. I thought it was a little pricey. I had to pay $33.00 and Cody was $20.00. Carson of course was free. My mom and dad got a senior discount but I don't remember how much that discount was.

It was interesting to see. I have some fond memories of my Grandma and I watching all of the Elvis movies when I was little. My Grandma loved Elvis and years ago they would have a Elvis marathon on one of the cable channels when it was getting closer to his birthday.

Here is one of his two planes. This one is the smaller plane. You could walk in and look through it. It had a couple tables and then a couple of seats away from the table. Just like trains, Carson loves planes as well.

I didn't take any pictures of the larger plane but it was unreal! When you walk in, there is a sitting area. The next section was a large dining room table with chairs. The next section was his bedroom. Had the bed, and a nice size bathroom. Everything was done in blue.
This was outside by the car gallery. Elvis had tons of cars over the years and it was neat to see them all. What I found fascinating was that some of the cars had been sold over the years and they relocated them to put in the showroom.
Here is a picture for Carson. He also loves tractors....all boy huh? This tractor was actually used on one of Elvis' farms.
This one is for Cody. He LOVES the color pink. I think he wants this car for his birthday. LOL

Since I hunt and love to go shooting, I had to take a picture of Elvis' shooting range.
The house was really nice. I was a little disappointed that you could only tour the downstairs.
One last picture while we waited for the bus to take us back to the parking lot. Next stop, back to Kansas City.....arriving after midnight.

That's so interesting. I wonder if there will be a "Graceland" type of thing for Michael Jackson.
