This past week we all celebrated Thanksgiving. And oh, I have so much to be grateful for.
Every year we usually celebrate Thanksgiving different places with my in-laws. And this year my family hopped on a plane and headed to Tucson, Arizona for a 10 day trip to visit my husband's side of the family and spend Thanksgiving with them.
The kids were amazing on the plane and everything went so smoothly. I couldn't have asked for it to have gone any better. With the help of some peace & calming essential oil I even did well on the plane!
It was a very tiring day since we had to get up at 4:30 to catch our flight and didn't get any sleep before that. But there was something very exciting to look forward to that kept us going that day. That evening we got to check off an item on my husband's bucket list: See an Arizona basketball game at the McKale center!
Kairi was chosen to go down on the court during halftime to be in a slam dunk contest. And from the crowd's cheers she won! It was so cute and fun! I'm just proud of her for getting up in front of 15,000 people and doing it!
The rest of the time was filled with spending time with the girls' cousins and family. And of course, eating some apple pie and drinking Starbucks.
The girls loved riding these animals at the mall and did 3 times!
We had lots of sleepovers and giggles.
Nonnie and CC made our Thanksgiving meal, which was delicious. Zeke enjoyed his own type of Thanksgiving dinner tho.
There was such beautiful weather the whole time in Tucson and it was almost hot on Thanksgiving Day. The house had a beautiful swimming pool, but we didn't find out it wasn't heated until we were there. But we promised the girls they could jump in one time. So on Thanksgiving day for about 5 minutes the girls had a blast and about froze. Jonathan said it was the coldest water he has ever been in. The things we do to create memories and make our kids smile!
It was a beautiful 10 day trip and was so good to see family again we haven't seen in years.
But there is no place like home!!!
I hope your Thanksgiving was filled with family, love and pie!
