For Thanksgiving in 2014, our family and my brother's family, decided to head North to visit my Aunt Wendy and Uncle Don in Ohio. We were very fortunate to realize that our trip went right through Tennessee where Austin's Grandparents live. We broke up the 14 hour trip and stopped for the night at their house. Penny was so good to us, she fed us all dinner that night and then made a delicious breakfast for us in the morning. On the way back to Texas she specifically made us another one of her famous apple pies, even though it was after Thanksgiving. It was absolutely delicious! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Wade! We love you both and hope to make this trip again soon.
Here is a picture of my Uncle Don and his family who we visited in Ohio. They live on a farm and we had a such a good time visiting, playing, riding horses, playing with puppies, playing games, watching movies, visiting an Amish town and bakery, eating fresh bacon from their back yard, corralling two pigs into their trailer, having a giant Nerf gun fight with PVC pipes, playing DDR, and of course eating lots of turkey and pie. It truly was a blast and way worth the long drive.
Look! This is why dogs are a man's best friend. Once they are able to move around they just want to be near you. Look at those little noses! The puppies were trying so hard to get to us. So CUTE! The picture with Emeri and the 7 day old golden doodle is actually one of the puppies Austin is trying to convince me to get. Look at her, she doesn't even have her eyes open yet. Ohhh...No No No....no puppies right now, are you kidding me? We have four children five years and under, we don't need a puppy. Oh but she is precious. -wink-
I should not have held her. Melting heart as we speak. Austin is in heaven right now.
The boys were pretty much there as well.
Emeri is riding this giant horse that my Aunt had kept from when her girls were little. It was just the right size for her. The other picture is of the kids being pushed by my cousin Joshua on the patio swing. It doesn't look cold but it was freezing! I couldn't believe how cold it got. Kids didn't mind though, there was just too much to do and see.
The girls even helped me out with Oakley. Thank you two girls! You were so much fun to be with and such a great help as well.
