We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year in Tallahassee visiting Justin's family! We spent four wonderful days there and it was so good to see everyone. One of the highlights of the trip was meeting our super cute 9 month old nephew. He is such a sweetie and Rodney and Michele are definately blessed to have him! We got to visit with our niece Dana as well, who is growing up to be a beautiful young lady. It was the first time we have been to Tallahassee since Mamma P had moved to her new place and we stayed with her in her nice second story apartment overlooking a golfcourse. Very nice! Michele was quite the hostess, she made a very good Thanskgiving dinner with all the fixins! We did the whole black Friday thing, getting up fairly early and shopping for a few hours, although we didn't shop as hard as we normally do, we did find some bargains!Of course the highly anticiapted Florida State vs. Florida game was the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and the noles lost again this year, which wasn't fun, but the Gators didn't kill us as bad as everyone thought and we held our ground, so GO NOLES, there is always next year:)Well, Thanks Sculleys and Mamma P for making out Thanksgiving so much fun! We look forward to our next visit and we love you guys!

What a fun weekend we had! We went with several of our friends camping this weekend and we had a blast! It started out with 12 of us cramming all of our stuff into three cars, and heading West out of Fort Worth. Our plan was to camp at Mineral Wells State park, but when we got there all the campsites were full. We then got back into our cars and headed 30 minutes west of Mineral Wells and went to Possum Kingdom, and let me tell you this was in the middle of nowhere. We didn't even have cell phone service! It was so beautiful out there and it was really nice to just be outdoors! When we got there we unpacked all of our stuff and put up our tents.
We had a beautiful campsite. This was our view!
Once we were all unpacked we were running out of daylight so we decided to go camping, this was our crew before our hiking adventure:
The trails were very nice. Here are some pictures we took at the top of the trail.
When we returned from hiking the first thing we did was build a fire! We were all hungry at this point so we cooked hot dogs over the fire and had dinner. Then of course we had smores. We had two of our friends who are from other countries, and it was their first time ever trying smores! They loved it!
We were really cold that night and I don't think anyone brought quite enough clothing, but we had a really fun time.The next morning we woke up early to see the sunrise. It was very cold!We then had granola bars for breakfast, enjoy a few more hours of relaxing around the warm fire and then it was time to go! I was sad that it was such a short trip, next time we plan on going for more than one night.
On the way back we saw the World's Largest Wheelbarrel. Yes, you read correctly, the World's Largest!
We had such a great time we are already planning our next adventure! That's all for now!
