Thanksgiving, Finally!

So I know it has been a while, but I am finally getting around to posting about our Thanksgiving. For the big Turkey day, we packed up the Volvo and headed down to Utah for a week. The trip went really well and Ellis did wonderfully...she only protested a couple times and then realized all of her protesting was not going to get her out of her seat, so she finally gave in! We made it to Utah in great time...I think we averaged about 11 hours total for the trip. So our first stop was to visit some of Loni's childhood friends Dan and Kyla Stevens in Logan, UT. We stayed with them from Saturday to Tuesday and the entire time was filled with fun. We started out the week by going to Park City where we shopped outlets, Dan and Loni went to a play while Kyla and I babysat the kids in the van and then visited old Park City. The next day was Sunday so we enjoyed a nice church meeting at thier building then went to Sariah's house for a wonderful dinner. On Monday and Tuesday we did a lot of driving around and ended the day by going to the Logan Zoo...it was actually quite fun. Tuesday afternoon, Loni and I decided to head down to West Jordan to visit my uncle and his wife, so we bade farewell to Logan. That night, we had a nice dinner with my Uncle Bert and Aunt Vicki at Chilis...it was a lot of fun. The following day Loni and I decided to go to a place which had little elves and shops and we met up with Dan and Kyla and Marcus...it was a lot of fun but then Loni, Dan and Marcus all decided they wanted to got to the auto auction and, once again, leave Kyla and I to watch the kids. We (the girls) ended up spending 3 hours walking around Target...which I guess wasn't so bad with us. Thursday (Thanksgiving) we headed down to Pleasant Grove to go to the Opfar family reunion Thanksgiving Dinner. That was a lot of fun to see all the family I don't get to see too often. Friday we headed home and that made our vacation over! It was great to see Dan and Kyla and thier family. They really are some of our greatest friends and I always enjoy the time we spend together (except when the girls (Kyla and I)are left to watch the kids all the time). :) I really wished they lived closer to us. It was also great to see my Aunt Vicki and Uncle Bert...I really had fun catching and reminiscing with them. All in all it was a great trip!
