Oh hey. Just catching up on this here blog. It’s just January, and we only went to Texas in November sooo, I’m not too far behind.
So, we went to Texas for Thanksgiving. My mom’s side of the family resides there and it was the first thanksgiving for me with my family in ten years. So that was lovely.
It’s always with a touch of apprehension that we load up on an airplane but Ev and Jack are getting to the age where airplane rides bring much delight so that was fun. I had to carefully ignore Jack on the second flight and it wasn’t long before he crashed and I think I read my book or something else ridiculously relaxing.
The weather was amazing. So many high fives for that. We went on a fun football date that really turned into quite the experience. Haha. Go watch that video, literally just brought it all back. I was on my feet hollering,’Guys, it’s Texas CHRISTIAN University!!!!!’. I’ve never experienced a brawl of that proportion and it produced all sorts of adrenaline. We were also sitting next to the sweetest Baylor fans so that was kind of sad.
Three cheers to the family who took such good care of us. It was majorly a thanksgiving vacation. I barely lifted a finger in the food department. So thank you again aunties, and Brookie, and Gram for letting us take over your room and bed and house.
When I was maybe 14, Davey and I went to Texas and hung out with my little toddler cousins, Avery and Parker. And now I have little toddlers. And my little toddler cousins are not so little anymore. Watching them love on my kids was such a highlight for me.
Wes and Dad took the kids to the zoo while mom and I did some serious shopping. The kids are still talking about experiences at the zoo and it makes me smile to think of them hopping around with my two favorite guys.
Lots to be thankful for.
So happy we were able to make this happen. Hugs family!
