We spent Thanksgiving this year in Dallas with Aaron's family. My parents were sailing the Caribbean (literally) and so we spent some of the time in their house and some of the time at Aaron's brother's house. Oh man did we love having such a big house. It felt like a mansion. Then when we drove to Adam and Cassie's house we just couldn't get over how big the homes were in their neighborhood. Our perspective has changed so much. We drove by our old house (tear) and I just missed it. I sure loved that house.
But onto the food, and all the other fun stuff we did. We had a great time with Aaron's family and Carson just loved playing with his cousins. He asked every morning to play with Drewba and Abby. The kids just played their little hearts out with so much space to run around in, stairs to climb, and a big back yard filled with toys. Thanksgiving day was spent eating and relaxing and playing outside in the gorgeous temps.
There was of course, lots of Yoga with Grandma. The boys just loved trying to do the moves.
I wanted Jeanie to help me with my back and Camilla thinks when I get on the floor it must mean that I want to hold her or play with her.
We had an adults night and went to the temple and out to dinner. We had such a nice time, the kids did great with the babysitters, and we got back just in time to put all the kiddos to bed and break out the pumpkin pie.
Then on Saturday we went to the JFK museum Now funny fact, I'm from Dallas, I had never been to the museum before. We didn't actually go inside as it is super expensive and the wait was crazy but we walked around and went to the place where he was shot. It kind of got me obsessed with the whole thing and since then I have watched the whole Kennedy series on Netflix.
Poor worn out Millie slept through the whole cultural experience.
Then we went to this burger joint down town and had fabulous cheeseburgers and an assortment of fried things. It was a fun little joint.
After this we decided to check out the new park that opened up in downtown. They were still building this when we moved and it is really cool. If you haven't checked it out you should. Its really big and has lots of fun kid's stuff and its right in the middle of downtown. I hope they keep it up as it is a very fun place.
The weather was just perfect and we had great hosts for the holiday. We were all worn out by the end of the trip and Carson was asking for his cousins as soon as he woke up Monday morning. Couldn't we just drive back over?
