We just got back into town last night after spending Thanksgiving in South Carolina with both of our families. The boys and I were there since Monday of last week and Dustin came on Wednesday night. For anyone that doesn't know, Dustin and I started dating in high school and our parents still live in the same home town. This makes holiday visits super convenient to see both sides in one trip. This year, my extended family that live in North Carolina and Florida also made the trip. I brought my real camera, but chasing around two tiny humans doesn't leave much room for turning it on and removing a lens cap, so here are a few pics I was able to capture with my phone during the week.

 Aiken is known mostly for golf and horses. On Tuesday, we visited the Equine Rescue so the boys could see some horses, ponies, donkeys and of course a tractor.

 And of course Chick-fil-A.
 Anyone with kids knows that kids adapt super well to traveling and usually have no sleep issues whatsoever. Just kidding. The littlest was up by 4:45 every morning and since he was in sleeping in the same room, we couldn't let him cry it out tuck him nicely back in over and over. This brought plenty of early morning playtime.
 More horses.
 Walking around downtown with some "yi-bops"

 Kids also usually eat super well when traveling. Ryder was thrilled to get cupcakes every night.
 They love each other.
 Thanksgiving number one with my family.

 Ryder with his nightly cupcake.
 The King/Oprea/Bullard cousins
 Sugar crash and stimulation overload.
 Thanksgiving number two with Dustin's side of the family. Somehow, I only managed to take a couple pics.

 And this sums up how we all feel after the week.
The week before last, we got to go to Finn's school for a family Thanksgiving celebration. It was just the sweetest little thing where they sang a couple songs for the parents and then everyone from all the classes got to eat a meal together. 
 We have been full swing into Christmas since Nov 1 in our house, so stay tuned for some pics of all things merry and bright.
