Thanksgiving 2009

11/22-12/6: This year we were blessed with being able to go to Texas for Thanksgiving. It is quite an ordeal to travel with 3 one-year old babies. We do travel with a trailer attached to our van. It is impossible to travel without it. There is so much that we need to make our stay outside of our home possible. We had a great trip and it was great to see all of our family! The raod trip was so much easier with the van! Oh, we just upgraded to forward facing carseats! yay! So, on the road trip we watched lots of Elmo and Sid the Science Kid!

Special Thanks: Thank you Tina, Mom and Dad Walter and Aunt Ginger for the amazing gifts of carseats for the babies! You are all amazing and so giving to our family! We feel so blessed! This was the first time traveling with forward facing car seats and made the entire trip so much easier and entertaining for ALL!!
