Thanksgiving in Kentucky

Well we're back and trying to get back to normal. The drive there was about 11 hours. It was long but the kids did really well. Thank goodness for the dvd player in the van. The last couple of days there Lily and Ashton got sick, so the ride home wasn't as pleasant but we arrived in one piece. I now caught whatever it was they had, and it's not fun, but "tis the season!" Here are several shots from the trip.

Over all it was a fun trip and worth the long drive. The only ones missing was Darren's brothers Dan and Doug.
Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving! ;)

Glad you had a happy Thanksgiving! It looks like it was a great place to explore for the kids. My favorite places! Hope you're feeling better soon. My kids are down, so I'm counting down the days until I'm down too... Like you said.."Tis' the Season!"

Oh . . . I love the picture of Ashton and Lily walking off into the woods. Priceless! I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Especially right when you get back and are wanting to get all unpacked and settled back in, not to mention, probably set up all your Christmas stuff! Miss you, as always! Your family picture looks GREAT, too!
