Our First Thanksgiving Together.... in the USA

Last Year Mike and I were in Paris for Thanksgiving, it was very exciting but it just wasn't the same as having all your family around and stuffing your face. We we flew into Seattle to visit Becky and Nathan and then drove over to Spokane with them.

While Mike & I were in Seattle we took a fairy. Mike had never been on one before so it was really fun & the Island we went over to was so pretty.

Our first day in Spokane we went to Chuck e Cheese and then we went Nascart racing. Those are Mike's top two activities. We love going to Spokane because we know my Mom will take us to Chuck e cheese with the little boys and we absolutely love that place! Here are the boys before they raced it was so entertaining watching them. My Dad can be quite the competitor!

The day after Thanksgiving we went out to Couer d'Alene to see the lights get lite up! We had no idea it was such a big event. So many people were there and come to find out it is one of the biggest light ceremonies in the US! It was really cold but the fireworks made up for the freezing weather.

One my favorite parts of the trip was how much my little nephew Carter loved Mike. When he would see Mike he would lean forward to press heads together. Those boys are just too cute!

P.S. We are very grateful for the Families we have. Mike & I are very lucky to both have families we get along with and love very much!
