I’m behind again on my photog-o-blogging, but wanted to give thanks for a great weekend we had over Thanksgiving with my in-laws.

It started with a super easy getaway on Wednesday night.  Despite leaving during  prime rush hour time, we hit nary a snag.

Amidst the scramble to get packed and out the door, this trio decided to plop themselves down in a fit of cute and mug for the camera.

Once we got to Grandma & Grandpas, we enjoyed great weather, great food and great fun.   Mike & I started the day with a Crossfit workout (no pictures available, since I don’t like to document my misery).  Then, everyone did what he or she did best.

Some played:

Some tasted bubble juice on their thumb…

Some worked out AGAIN:

While others prepped:

And still others napped:

While waiting for the turkey to cook, Grandma & Aunt Lana got in a quick game of competitive horseshoes.  They consulted the directions to make sure the competition was legit.

Grandma’s got her eyes on the prize.

Si-Guy enjoyed the two wheeler Grandpa found for him.

Finally it was time to eat turkey.   (And ham).

I made these delicious pull-apart rolls which were as scrumptious as they looked.

We ate at my in-laws, but were joined by my mom’s sister, husband and cousin.  I am so thankful that our families are so well integrated and get along.  It is a tremendous blessing.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

This half-pint couldn’t sit still through dinner, but found his seat and his daddy’s fork pretty quick when dessert was served.

After dinner, there was a little reading and a lot of being cute.

The next day, we celebrated Wendy’s birthday again.  She didn’t complain 🙂

I get to blow them out again?

It was a great time with family.   We are so thankful!

    Looks like fun! And not to hit a snag during rush hour travel? Now THAT’s something to be thankful for.

    So apparently you’ve joined Mike in crossfit enthusiasm? You go girl!
