Today we had a relaxing and exciting day. We were going to spend the day on the Mississippi relaxing and getting ready to go to Grace Land, Elvis Presley's home. First we went fishing for about 15 minutes, and then we decided to go back to the RV and read in the shade because it was so hot. While we were sitting down my Dad said that he caught a huge fish. We all ran down to see what he caught, and it was big and fat perch, the biggest that we caught on the trip! After my Dad released it we went back to the shade and my Mom gave us chocolates that she said had peanuts in it, and since I'm no allergic to peanuts, I ate it. After about 5 minutes I had an allergic reaction! I was feeling so sick that I didn’t eat anything for lunch, and my Dad was concerned. He investigated and looked at the chocolate my Mom gave me and saw that it had walnuts in it! My mom felt so bad that she let me lay on the couch and read Sherlock Homes while Emma and Katelyn had to sit in the hot sun. After a while I was starting to feel better, so I ate dinner and then watched a movie with my Mom, Emma and Katelyn. I had a bad day because of my reaction.

Today we went to Elvis Presley’s home, Graceland, in Memphis Tennessee. When we got there we went into a museum called Icon: The Influence of Elvis Presley. When we got into the museum I was surprised to see that even country singers like Carrie Underwood wore outfits that looked like Elvis’. After we left that museum we went on a tour of Elvis’ mansion. I was really surprised how big it was, and also how expensive everything seemed. I thought that there were really interesting things in the house, like a glass hallway, a jungle themed room, and a racquet ball room.
