Our Thanksgiving adventure

For thanksgiving we went to Philadelphia.  My sister is pregnant and not allowed to travel anymore because she is due any day.  The girls did awesome traveling.  We drove to Pittsburgh and stopped at Ian's best friend's house to give the girls a break.  After dinner, we got back on the road.  No crying at all from the girls!  We arrived in Philly around 11pm.  And the girls woke up and got a second wind.  They didn't go back to bed til almost 1am.  Thursday, we celebrated Thanksgiving.  My mom did all the cooking and it was delicious.  We went to Uncle Ryan's family's house for desert.  It was very nice seeing everyone! 

My mom, sister, and I went black Friday shopping at midnight (we were hoping we could put my sister into labor, but it didn't work, she is still preggers!)  We hit three stores and it actually was pretty calm.  We didn't wait in any lines, and when we checked out at each store it was only a 5-10 minute wait.  We got home at 3:30am.  the men were in charge of the babies in the morning so we could sleep in!

Friday- My extended family came to Rachel and Ryan's house for a visit.  It was so nice to see them!  We don't get to see them often, but when we do, it is a lot of fun!  The girls had a lot of fun.  They loved their gifts and had a picnic with Mari.  They love to dance too.  They dance 24/7, at home, on car rides.  So they had a little dance party that night (video will be posted on another post)!

Saturday- we hung out in the morning.  Ian, the girls, and I had a photo shoot for xmas cards in the backyard.  We then went to a little town with shops to let the girls run around before we hit the road.  It is a 7 hour drive, so we were preparing for a bad drive home.  But to my surprise, once again the girls did awesome.  They were up for 5 of the 8 hours (we took an hour break for dinner).  The whole 5 hours they were awake, they played with their toys, watched blues clues, danced, and then daddy climbed in the back and they were laughing hysterically and having a great time with him!

It was a successful trip!
