Thanksgiving Break Trip

After nine days and 2,384 miles, we are finally back at home.  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving trip and saw lots of fun folks, but it sure is good to be back home again.

The washer is currently working on load number 4 (we are a little over half done), so I'm taking the time to go through my photos.  Looks like I didn't take too many, here goes.

On our way out of town, we took Grandpa Lee to the airport.  It sure was nice to have him for a week!

Breanna had her 7th birthday while we were gone, she was so excited to be able to celebrate with her friend Graciella.
 Auntie Anna made these fun cupcake toppers, and surprisingly- quite a few of them survived the plane-trip quite well!
 Where have the years gone?!?

We got to see quite a bit of family that we haven't seen in years, some Tyler had never met; and we all had fun.
 Kiera even came with Uncle Doug for a day.
When Breanna and Graciella were both 1 year old, we went to this same beach.
 The girls had so much fun together again, and it was a beautiful 78degrees!
 Sweet little feet.
 Daddy's boys.

 Lucas and Levi.

 This was Levi's first time to the ocean..... he loved building in the sand!

 Anna made these fun hooded-towels for the kids, they were very handy for the beach.
We drove up to San Simeon to see the Elephant Seals, there were lots!
 This guy was huge.

 These girls are inseparable.

Now back to the laundry.  

I painted the garage bathroom before leaving, and am excited about working more on the house.  For awhile I was worn out with working on it so much, but now I want to finish it up.  And I'm really excited about getting the quilting machine set up again!

Aw those kids are so precious! I'm jealous of Breanna's hair. She's a beautiful little girl. :) And the boys are pretty handsome. :D

Thanks for sharing all those wonderful photos. So glad you got to make this trip. The area there is so gorgeous. I went there for the first time in Sept. and fell in love with the area, beach, ocean and weather!!!

So fun to see you guys!! My husband still thinks I'm nuts for staying up all hours of the night, several nights to make those cupcake toppers and towels and such :) but it was worth it!! I'm sure the kids LOVED the beach- I'm a bit jealous! We'll have to go to the oregon coast next time we come. Maybe late spring or summer?! Miss the kiddo's already! -Auntie Anna

Your holiday looks fantastic. Breanna is growing up to be quite the young lady!

I love those embroidered towels!

What a glamour girl Miss Breanna is! That is a great picture of Dad with the kids. I haven't had a chance to see pictures from Dad's camera yet, I'm hoping he took lots of pictures of the kids! Enjoy your time at home!

What a sweet girl that Breanna is! I love the photos of her and of the beach. I'm very jealous! Wish I could have been there with your adorable family!
