Road Trip Day One--Made it to Germantown, TN

We made it this far the first day. We had a stop in Corinth, MS to visit Borroum's Drug Store, Mississippi's oldest drug store complete with barstools and old fashioned root beer floats. We enjoyed playing on the square around the courthouse, visiting the dollar general for "journals" and rubber balls owen and alex bought--i forgot to bring the kids any notebooks or paper to draw in for our journey and they like to do that.....We made it to Germantown, TN west of Memphis. Here they are known for their Charity Horse Show, and a treat for Emma was to see all the horse statues around town. We got a map and visited all 21! In the link you can see all the horses we saw and read the history of the horse show there in the fall, this is the 60th year. Germantown also had some amazing playgrounds around town that we explored that evening. The driving was made easier by the shows daddy had burned to dvd for us and the cooler full of snacks we had in the car. We ended the day late into the next day with swimming and hot-tubbing at the hotel pool. I have posted photos on a "flicker" account to go along with what I write about our trip because there are just too many I wanted to share to put them here. If you have any trouble let me know. Here is the link to see the photos on the Flicker account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/eastofthebox/
