Happy 77th Birthday Elvis!

Did you know that today would have been Elvis' 77th birthday? Well, we did because we went to his birthday party at the National Archives in Atlanta. They played some YouTube videos of Elvis performing and they had a birthday cake to celebrate too:
 There were documents on display like this one where Elvis wrote a letter to President Nixon asking for a meeting with him to get a federal narcotics officer badge. Hmmmm...wonder if he ever got it?

Our Boy wasn't too happy to learn that you have to be 14 to do research handling the documents at the archives. But, the kids learned how to search the online database at http://www.archives.gov/ . Our Boy is eager to search for documents on the Titanic and on Coca-Cola.
