thanksgiving trip

We spent the entire Thanksgiving week
with my in-laws
in Utah.

We had a wonderful
fun, relaxing trip.

I love my in-laws.
They are definitely near the top of my thankful list.

While we were there:

We feasted.
(But I was too busy eating to take photos.)

We sang.

We danced.

We wore our pretty clothes
and posed for pictures.

We libraried and read books.

We played.

We golfed.
(Benjamin fit in three games
and I went to the driving range twice
because I'm not good enough to really golf yet.)

We colored.

We were speechless
when my father-in-law who generally hates cats
announced his decision to get one
for my mother-in-law.

We recovered our power of speech
and got to help him choose the new kitty.

We visited the train yard
where my father-in-law works.

We gifted.

We shopped a little.
(But not on Black Friday
because we're not insane.)

We visited
where we had a ton of educational fun.

We visited
with long-lost friends.

We dated.

Yes,
it was a lovely trip indeed.
But I am oh, so glad to be back home.

Sounds like you had a wonderful trip. Sweet Pea is growing so fast! I'll bet her grandparents loved spending time with her and her brothers.
