Thanksgiving Adventures Begin!

This year, Mike's family was lucky enough to have us with them for turkey day :-). We picked up the kids a little early from school on Tuesday, the 25th, and hit the road to San Antonio. We hadn't been since the summer so it was so fun to be together again (we were just missing Chrissy and her family).
Mike and I headed out early the next morning for a quick trip to Vegas. It has kind of become our Thanksgiving tradition, and I love it. A short flight, a cheap but luxurious hotel room, fun outlet mall shopping and plenty of yummy food options. Plus, the kids love having that quality time with Meema and Papa. This year we headed to Hash House for breakfast upon arrival and went the fancy route eating at the steakhouse SW in our hotel (the Wynn) for dinner. Both were delicious...and definitely didn't help us in being prepared to eat a big Thanksgiving dinner the next day. It was over all too soon, but we were back in time for the yummy feast Diane prepared. We have so much to be thankful for, but our awesome families are definitely top of the list.

Preston passed out reading our first night there.
Luckily he can't read very well yet though because the book was called "Bedtime Stories for Girls" haha :-)!
