This Thanksgiving we had the pleasure of being hosted in California for Thanksgiving. We left on Wednesday and came back on Sunday and it was a great time away.
We drove up to Dallas Tuesday night to stay in a hotel close to the airport since our flight left at 8am. The boys got to stay in the same room which was SOOOO very much fun for them, and slightly stressful for us. It truly was a joy as they spent each night of our vacation in the same room to hear them giggling and accusing each other of keeping the other one up when we went to tell them to go to sleep. We have had hopes for them to share a room and I think this trip confirmed that (once Taylor goes to bed a little later) it will be a great fun and quality thing for their relationship to share a room.
Snoozing before their 5:30am (aka Mom) went off...
Sometimes you just gotta load them on too to get everything to where it needs to be.
Everyone needs a nap after Thanksgiving, right?!?!
One morning the four of us walked down to a park in the neighborhood and just played around. David tried to get Matthew to climb some of the trees. This is about as high as we got before we freaked. But we'll keep working on that.
This. Is what I'm grateful for. Every moment.
Anything seems backwards in this picture?!?!?
Another afternoon we went to a nearby park and had alot of fun running around.
See how much fun we're having....until we slip off that seat and hit our lip coming down. And.....
No vacation is complete without wrestling with Daddy. There were so many opportunities for all of us to have individual and together time. THat was what we wanted and were able have the time to get away from the routine to do that.
Everyone needs to ride a chopper on the West Coast right?!?! (Note: no children were harmed or transport via motorcycle in the making of this vacation)
Saturday we had a fun outing out to an area where you hike down to the tide pools and can see alot of little sea creatures.
This was a Thanksgiving to remember. It is not common for us to travel on holidays being that our families are mostly in town. But it might be something I could get used to especially when we have great hostesses. There is alot of different things to do as well and I don't think our boys will turn down a trip on an airplane.
And every successful vacation can be determined if your back seat looks like this on the way home.
