the past bit

The past few weeks have been a nonstop party. Andrew's dad, mom and John came into town for a quick weekend. Since John is going on his mission in 3 weeks (3 weeks!? craze!) they wanted to go to see some church history sights. That is one amazing thing about living here, there is so much rich history so close to us.

Niagra Falls, Palmyra, Hiram, Kirtland

Kipling loves his John and Andrew loves explosions

Sadly, I had to work most of the weekend so I wasn't able to go with them but they said it was amazing.
I did get to go to the John Johnson farm with them which was so fun!!! Even if Mary Yoder's was closed.
We already miss them. It was a good break from school for Andrew and so fun to be with family again.
3 more weeks of the semester!!! You can do it love!

For Thanksgiving we drove to Raleigh to be with my familia.
Kipling did awesome in the car and slept for most of the drive (thank goodness!) while Andrew and I listened to John Grisham's The Associate.
Aaron and my dad flew out from Utah and we just partied (and ate) the entire week.

We played outside because it was still gorgeous weather! I'm moving to Raleigh.
Tyler kept us very busy with basketball, a Turkey Bowl, kite flying and just being too dang cute.
You can definitely tell he's the only grandchild. We spoil him like crazy.

 Jared and Rose made the most delicious Thanksgiving feast ever.
I can't talk about it, I'm really hungry right now.

Then we crashed (dang tryptophan) and played Mario Kart.

And of course no post would be complete without a dash of Kipling.
He is also obviously an only child. I spoil him. I know. Don't judge.

We took him to an amazing dog park by Jared and Rose's house and he got to play with another puppy! They were best friends instantly and wore each other out. It was so cute.

I'm exhausted from all the fun. Time for a nap.
Hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving!
