Bumper Boats, Toys, and Legends!

We slept in for a bit, but the excitement of this fun town was too much to keep us in our room for long! We started out on the strip and came across a true Southerner's favorite!! "Cooters!! " It was every "Rebel Chick's"dream of a store, complete with the "General Lee" and "Roscoe & Enis's" Cop Car out front!
We mozied on up the street to the "World's Largest Toy Museum", raced go-Karts, got DRENCHED in the water bumper boats, ate at my ALL-TIME FAVORITE burger joint FUDDRUCKERS, and then got ready for our evening of entertainment at the "Legends in Concert"! Glen bought us FRONT ROW seats! What a fun "Trail Boss" he is!
The show was incredible! ummm...note to self, if you DON'T wish to be picked on in front of like 600 people, don't buy front row seats! The girls and I got a kiss from "Elvis", and I got to go up and play a eukele in front of the crowd while "Elvis" sang "Blue Hawaii".
It was a great time until Riley leaned over mid-show and asked, "Do you think I turned my flat-iron off in the hotel room?" It was at that moment that I could only envision in my mind 12 fire engines parked in front of the RADISSON spraying water on a pile of ashes with a flat iron on top, no longer could I enjoy "Marilyn Monroe" singing, "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend"!!

Thankfully, the show soon was ending with one of our favorite Redneck girls, "Gretchen Wilson" and we were able to exit quickly to joyfully find an unplugged flat-iron in our still standing hotel room!!
Tomorrow, after we "Ride The Duck" and possibly talk Hallie into a Helicopter Tour of the city (the girl won't even ride the Mini Mine Train at Six Flags...therefore Helicopter Tours appear very unlikely) we are meeting up with our fun friends the Brewers and heading off to our "little cabin in the woods"!
mmmmmmm....can't wait!!
