This year we braved the unthinkable (in our minds, at least) for the holidays. We took Jake on a road trip! We were both a little nervous for how everything would go, but of course our son impressed us and made his parents proud (doesn’t he always??). We stayed with his Aunt Rachel on Wednesday night and were grateful that she opened her house to us! And her backyard to Maggie & Tucker of course. It’s funny what a baby does to you…we made all these plans and then at the last minute Seth asked what my plans were for the dogs.
So thanks Rachel for letting us bring them!
(Don’t worry…we already have the kennel booked for Christmas)
Anyway…besides 30 minutes of screaming as we were trying to get out of town, Jake did FANTASTIC! I think it was probably because he knew we were headed to the motherland. You know. Aggieland. Duh. We showed him where Mom & Dad met, where we lived, where we worked, took him to our old classrooms…
Just kidding! But perhaps we’ll try that part when he’s a little older.
Rachel was so excited to see Jake…he’d done a lot of growing since she was at the hospital!
The next morning we headed over to Uncle Chase’s house to get ready for our Thanksgiving meal. He was so nice to have us all over and even cleaned his house for maybe the 2nd time in the past few years! Ha.
Getting ready to eat!
We were so glad to spend the holiday with some of both of our families! We had a great time and tons of GREAT food! We even took Jake up to the A&M campus for about an hour before we had to head back. He got to see our Aggie tailgate and meet a few friends. Maybe next year he’ll be running around the tailgate and going to a game or two??
When we got back, we watched the Aggie game with the Erbeles. Blake, Jack, & Jake (say it 5 times fast) talked shop and played together.
And as if you haven’t had enough pictures…
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We are really enjoying this long holiday weekend. Seth is even out putting lights on the house right now. Which is exciting, considering I was told a few days ago that Christmas lights weren’t happening this year. Nothing a little convincing from Jake couldn’t take care of!
