A Wonderful Thanksgiving!

We started out our Thanksgiving by heading to Jeff City. We had a great time with Grandmother, Grandpa, Jan and Gary. Then we headed to the White River. We had a great time at the cabin. It was wonderful to spend some quality time together. The cabin is GORGEOUS!! (Thanks to Nancy and Craig for letting us go!)

The weather was wonderful! We had warm days and cool nights. We had a fire outside each evening and made smores. We went on multiple walks to the river to throw in rocks, leaves, sticks and anything else that Hayden found. We dipped our feet in the river and it was FREEZING! Doug said he would have taken a swim if he'd remembered his trunks. Big talker! Hayden and I tried to convince him to just jump in, but he wouldn't do it!

We woke up around 7 on Saturday morning and had some breakfast before our first walk of the day.
Hayden was wide awake on our afternoon walk on Saturday.

Lainey was not! We didn't even know that she'd fallen asleep. The hat must have slipped over her eyes and, instead of fussing, she decided a nap was in order (this was after taking a 2 hour nap with me earlier in the day! Now, how can I get her to sleep this well at home??)

Lainey woke up at 6:15 a.m. on Sunday, so we went outside and (tried) to take a picture of the sunrise that we could see from the bedroom window. It is such a beautiful place that none of the pictures I took do it justice.

We were all sad to go, but it's nice to be home again. Apparently, Hayden gets carsick (lots of twisting roads on the way to the cabin.) We left at 9:30 a.m. and didn't get home until 4 p.m. Normally the drive is around 4 hours. We'll definitely be prepared next time! We've also learned that Lainey isn't big on longer car rides. Hopefully, this will change as she gets a bit older and we can turn the carseat around.
