We did it! We hosted Thanksgiving this year and it was a success. We had so much fun. The Clausens drove down on Tuesday night and on Wednesday we spent the afternoon at Zilker Park. It was a gorgeous day and we had so much fun. We packed lunch and had a picnic and then played soccer.
The Clausens are very good at soccer. Then we head over to the playground for awhile and of course had to do the train.
Oh how Camilla was in love with her cousin, Katelyn. She followed her around all week and loved every second of it.
Daddy and Brookey.
I can't even begin to describe the hours and hours that were spent on this swing. It was hands down the biggest hit of the week.
They wanted BBQ for dinner so we went to Salt Lick and ate so much we were sick.
Thanksgiving Day Adam and his family drove down. We had a lovely meal (the turkey took about 1.5 hours longer than expected) and all the babies slept for the whole meal. Then we just hung out together, watched football (Go Cowboys!), and ate dessert. Then we played some card games and stayed up way too late talking.
Everyone was heading home Friday so we decided to go for a hike by our house and play for a bit.
Lots of rock skipping .
Then we drove to Round Rock Donuts to eat before Clausens hit the road.
It never disappoints.
Adam's family stayed for a few more hours and we had fun spending time with them. Then Aaron and Camilla went to the UT football game together.
I'm not sure how interested Camilla is in football but she loved going on a date with Dad. And buying popcorn.
And this pretty much sums up how we all felt on Saturday - worn out. A lot of lounging and cuddling. Aaron with 3 of his babies watching football.
It was a fun week! I am beyond blessed with a beautiful, healthy family, great friends and the Gospel.
