I was gone all week.

Can you believe it?  A whole week.

At the last minute Jeff and I decided to pack our bags and head to my dads house for Thanksgiving.

We were busy little bees and came home with tons of memories…….and pictures……..and storiesto tell…..

About sheep and horses and dogs and birds AND babies.  And a whole lot more.  

I can’t wait to share them with you.

  10. This was a tease post 🙂

    We did a similar thing. About 2 weeks before Thanksgiving we decided to pack all the kids in the car and head to my dad's house in North Carolina for 4 days. It was a great trip and proved to me that everything doesn't have to be overplanned like I try to do.

  11. Looks like you guys had a great time. Can't wait to hear all about it.

  12. So far the photos look like you had a nice time. Those impromptu trips are sometimes the best.

    Also, it sounds like you had fun!!

  24. Last minute getaways to see family are the best!

  25. Oh you had a great time!

  26. Love those impromtu trips. Such an adventure. Looks like it was quite an adventure too!

  27. Spur of the moment trips can be so much fun. Looking forward to some deets. 🙂

    Can't wait to hear and see more!

  29. i love spur of the moment stuff, and with SEVEN to spur on – that's no mean feat!!!

  30. Sounds like a nice trip. Sometimes spur of the moment is better because it doesn't have the same lead up of stress getting ready… I am probably dreaming traveling with five kids is always stress. Sounds fun!
