Later that day we took a nice long walk at our favorite park with our dogs, wearing out both them and us.
Kris, Krista, Carl, Wrigley, and Sarah on the trail.
The next day we went into downtown Memphis and saw the Peabody Hotel ducks. The Peabody is a very nice hotel in Memphis that is known for having ducks that live there. During the day they swim in the fountain in the lobby if this grand hotel and at night they ascend to the roof for the evening (where they live) via the elevator! Sounds kind of funny, I know, but it's just one of those things you have to see when you are in Memphis.
Carl and I at the duck fountain, you can see a couple ducks swimming in the water behind us. The lighting is kind of poor, so you have to look closely (there is one over my shoulder).
The ducks are walking down their red carpet on their way to the elevator, followed by the man who "escorts" them up to the roof. I will admit, they were pretty cute.
Later that evening we went to a Memphis Redbirds game, which is always a fun time. It happened to set the record for the most attendance as well. Little did we know that we were going to make history. ; )

At the end of the game they had fireworks on the field.
So that was our Labor Day weekend. We had a blast. Hope you all were able to relax and have some fun on this long weekend, too.
