Thanksgiving Trip

We spent Thanksgiving break driving and visiting family! We visited 7 different states (Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa and Michigan). We stayed with Joe's sister and her family in Missouri for the majority of the trip.

 We spent an afternoon visiting my Grandpa & Grandma Riches in Kansas, their cow had a baby calf while we were there which was AWESOME, they named him Porter James. We had a lot of fun feeding the cows and riding grandpa's tractor and even got to go on a hay ride. I learned how to make pie's with my grandma and we ate them for Thanksgiving. 

We enjoyed staying with Joe's sister Becca and her family. The kids had so much fun playing together and Becca did a great job with Thanksgiving dinner. It was fun to be with family on Thanksgiving and we stuffed ourselves full with ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, rolls, stuffing, cookies and pie. 

We spent an evening with my Grandma and Grandpa Smith and their dogs in Kansas Friday night. We enjoyed sitting by the fire and visiting while the kids played with the dogs and toys. Hannah was mesmerized by the koo koo clock. We also enjoyed a yummy dinner together. 

We spent a late night with my sister and her family in Iowa before heading home. It was a quick visit but so much fun. The kids love being with their cousins and I loved seeing them.
