First Thanksgiving

We drove up to Skyline Drive in Front Royal, VA yesterday for some quality family time, just the three of us.

It was so nice. The weather was beautiful and the scenery is gorgeous. 

We spent the day hanging out at an overlook/rest area.

When we first got there there were a lot of people but as the afternoon went on we became the only one's and I loved the isolation and quite.

Matt and I threw a frisbee around. Natalie thought that was entertaining but for the most part she just wanted to stand at a bench and pick up sticks. She loved it.

Then we drove back to our hometown and ate dinner with my family, which always makes for an interesting time.

I couldn't be more thankful for my daughter and husband, but I don't need a holiday to tell you that. I appreciate all that I have 365 days a year. 




"This guy is hilarious."
"Oaakay, Mom, you can stop taking my picture now."
"Seriously. Stop taking my damn picture."

Thanks Michelle! Your baby is going to be so cute, can't wait to meet him. (Yes, I'm just calling it a him, because that's what my gut tells me you're having.) We'll see you next Sunday for the birthday party, if you can still make it!

Love your attitude. Okay, sorry but it needs to be said, with her beauty and awesome eyes and now I see that she's going to be TALL, your little one is headed towards, dare I say, becoming a model.

It's a legit job and they can be smart and educated too.

Love all the faces Natalie makes! Particularly her serious face with brows furrowed :) Glad you had a good holiday!

Your husband looks a little tall. Just a little.
I love all the many faces of Natalie.
It sounded like a lovely weekend. I can't remember the last time I played with a frisbee.

I went to Skyline Drive for the first time earlier this year with my fiance during the winter. It's so beautiful there! I would love to go one day in the spring/summer!
