This year, we decided to celebrate Thanksgiving with Steve's extended family in Raleigh, North Carolina. Despite a beastly drive to get there, we had a good visit with family and we were thankful to get the chance to see so many members of the Forbes clan.
The girls were highly intrigued with their great-grandparents' dog and her crate. Anna carried around the dog's stuffed animals the entire time and kept putting them down for naps in the crate.
And no, I can't get one picture of both girls looking at the camera and smiling, haha.
Joan knew a sure-fire way into a three-year-old's heart - a box of animal crackers and a big glass of milk.
Anna was a little starstruck with her aunt Mary - a REAL LIFE DOCTOR. Luckily we brought Anna's doctor kit so they could play check up.
The dog needed a check up too, apparently.
Jack and Joan live on a small lake, so when the girls started getting antsy, we bundled up and took a walk.
Our branch of the family. Susan was home sick with the plague and Kristy was visiting her boyfriend.
Joan also mentioned that she and Jack will be celebrating their 60 year wedding anniversary right after Christmas - happy anniversary Joan and Jack!
We had a fun time in Raleigh and hope to be able to come back soon for a longer visit. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
