This year for Thanksgiving we drove back to Austin to celebrate with John's family. We left around 5:00 am on Monday morning...but we had to wait a couple hours for the sun to come up before we could take our road trip selfie! ha!
We had a long day of traveling. But stopping for dinner in Waco was such a treat. It's always good to be back in Waco.
15 hours later we made it to John's mom's house. Our kids were full of energy...we were not.
Tuesday we went to the park and then had some Tex-Mex for lunch. Amen.
These kids love Mexican food.
Doing some work at Susu's computer...talking on the phone, err mouse.
That night after dinner the kids got to make banana splits. They were big fans!
Wednesday we met up with Spencer and Pam for a delicious Mexican breakfast. Emma and Pop Pop shared hair accessories and a love for bacon.
After breakfast we went to the aquarium.
And fed some birds.
John had a bird on his head for a good 5 minutes.
I didn't get the memo that we weren't smiling and looking at the camera. oops! ha!
After lunch and naps we went to Kiddie Acres with Spencer and Pam which is a little amusement park place for little kids. John grew up going there and the kids and I went back in the spring but this was his first time there with the kids. It was a fun afternoon!
Emma did so much more this trip than she did in the spring. She is such a big girl now!
After Kiddie Acres we met up with Sara and Ron for dinner. Hudson got a chance to wear Pop Pop's hat. He was looking a little Newsies-ish. ha!
Thursday (Thanksgiving) morning we got up and quickly got ready and drove up to Waco to spend Thanksgiving with John's dad's family.
My favorites on Thanksgiving...the 3 I'm most thankful for.
One of John's cousins found a praying mantis outside and brought it inside for the kids to see. Hudson and I are not big fans of bugs. Hudson said, "that bug needs to go back outside now." Couldn't agree more!
Friday we were up early again for our drive back home. We were all more than ready to be home!
It was a quick but wonderful trip. We are so thankful for our families!
