I know that I'm a little behind on the recap, but better late than never, right? Right! And I wanted to blog about it so that I can look back and remember.
We decided to go to Georgia this year. I was very nervous leading up to the trip. This is the first long drive that Annelise has had since she was a baby, and the very first for Harrison. We decided to drive overnight to make it easier on the kids. It's rough for the parents, but I would rather suffer a little than have the kids be miserable. They were amazing travelers!
We spent the rest of the morning relaxing a little, and visiting with everyone. Drew, Jen, and their kids were already there. I showered and got ready to go over to Whitney's house.
I packed up the kids around noon and headed over, while Drew stayed back to take a nap.
I was nervous about how naps and nighttimes were going to go since we would all be sharing one room. Surprisingly, it was not too bad at all! Annelise slept in her PeaPod very well, and Harrison slept about the same as he usually does.
Thanksgiving was mainly spent eating and hanging out with everyone. Us girls looked through all the ads, like we do every Thanksgiving, and formulated a plan for shopping that evening. The kids all played together while we waited for the fantastic dinner that Eric cooked.
Saturday, Drew and Jen and their family went to Christmas for her side of the family. We said our goodbyes to them since we planned on leaving before they would be getting back. We took the kids to a place called Catch Air to let them play and run off some energy. Wes and Annelise had a blast!
Overall, it was a fantastic trip and we all had a great time. I just love being able to spend the holiday with family!
