Stuck on you!

January 8th 2010 would have been Elvis Presley's 75th birthday.
We were "all shook up" about it so I grabbed the kids and my "Big Hunk O' Love" and headed to a local diner for a special dinner to celebrate
Lyle the owner and his wife came up with this fun menu

They also had fun trivia cards on the table, but "A Fool Such As I" didn't do so well with the answers.
I had never had a signature GRILLED peanut butter and banana sandwich, so I figured
"It's now or never" and ordered one and it was really "Too Much"... no "Return to Sender" with this meal. It was delicious!!
Check it out!! (Mmmm... now I want another one!)

They had Elvis music playing over the speakers in the restaurant and were playing an Elvis movie on the TV and I "[Couldn't] Help Falling In Love" with Elvis and his music and charm.

Now "Don't be cruel" and judge me too harshly, but we couldn't resist getting a peanut butter and banana shake for dessert too. Mmmmm!

It was such a fun way to celebrate and educate the kiddos on "The King"

I love this video. He looks so great in that leather outfit

This is probably my favorite Elvis song. I SO wish I could have seen him perform in his prime!

This one's a classic!!

Elvis, it was fun to celebrate "The Wonder of You"
