On Tuesday, these 4 Shull turkeys traveled to Missouri to visit the Shull side of the family.
6 hours is a long time to be in the car!
We ate lunch on Wednesday at one of our favorite spots…Sandstone Garden. Smith loves his PawPaw!
Nanny, Kensington and Andrew
My silly boy back there!
Super excited about something!
After lunch, we made our way to the old-fashioned candy store. We looooooove getting candy here!
Running to the door!
Then, Cheryll and I did some shopping on our own. This included me visiting my very first John Deere store. And look…I coincidentally am wearing a green coat! This was my first (and most likely last) visit to John Deere. I’m too city for these folks. 🙂
Don’t I look like a fish out of water?!?!
Later that night, we met up with the guys and kids for dinner and some mall shopping.
Then we did the coolest thing EVER! Way back in September, when we had K’s Tangled birthday party, I purchased these Chinese lanterns (like from the movie Tangled)…well, Texas still had a burn-ban, so we weren’t able to send them up. Sooooo…we took them to Missouri and set them off there instead. Words can’t describe how cool these lanterns were. They were big (about the size of Smith) and floated waaaaaaay up in the sky. It was just like the movie. (You’ll notice, my sweet girl was so excited to watch that she ran outside before I could cut the price tag off of her jacket!).
This is Andrew and Steve getting one lit.
The next day was Turkey Day!!
We were so happy to play with our cousins Brode and Sylvia!
Sweet Sylvia! (They’re only 12 weeks a part.)
Uncle Dave was so sweet. He spent the longest time outside with all 4 kids. He was helping them slide, cheering them on…being sooooo sweet to the four kids!
Best part of my vacation…on Thanksgiving night, both of my babies sat in my lap for 30 minutes while we watched Toy Story 3. I am so thankful.
