Thanksgiving trip {day 1 and 2}

We are spending time up at Aunt Scarletts' and Uncle Nicks' for Thanksgiving along with Grandma and Grandpa. It's great to be able to spend time with family. We headed up here Tuesday afternoon and made it to our destination late Tuesday night. The little ones did really well on the long trip and we only had one rough patch around bedtime.
Our course what is one of the first things that must be done in a hotel? Playing on the bed right? This didn't happen until the morning though since we arrived at the hotel late at night with two sleeping kiddos.
One of the things Beau wanted to do during his visit was a trip to the Frothy Monkey - a local coffee house. Unfortunately they were actually out of the frothy monkey drink (well out of the banana flavoring to make it) but I enjoyed a delicious Chai Latte. Mmmm.... wishing I had another one of those right now. The men played some chess while we drank our coffees, teas and hot chocolates.
Micah took off with a chess piece or two while we were there.
We also got our introduction to the game of Rock Band. Both kids (and Beau) loved it. I think it might be going on Beau's Christmas list - either that or Guitar Hero.
Now Beau has headed back home as he has a work shift (but we'll miss him and wish he could have had more days off) and the kids and I will ride home with Grandma and Grandpa tomorrow. Waiting for us when we get back will be Gigi and Pops. It's always wonderful to spend time with family and we've had a wonderful time here! We are just so thankful for our wonderful families!
