an erie thanksgiving

we had a fantastic pennsylvania thanksgiving this year. our friends, smitty & ashlee, invited us to their house in erie PA. it was so much fun to see them, along with maren & ryan. we ate a very tasty Thanksgiving meal. it was ashlee's first time cooking a turkey and she did amazing.

after the feast, we decided to go check out lake erie, which actually looks more like an ocean. it's huge! there are waves and everything.

that night, we watched the Disney*Pixar Up and then played a long game of Phase 10.

the next day, we hit up some bowling. tannon was a little bummed that he didn't have his ball & shoes on hand, but he made it through okay.

although we missed our families tremendously, we had a really great thanksgiving!
now it's time to whip out the taylor swift, kenny chesney, & alabama Christmas albums!

I'm so glad that you guys were able to spend Thanksgiving together! What a huge blessing that you live so close. I'm sure Golden Corral or wherever it is your family usually eats Thanksgiving missed you ;)

Love you.

I was way behind on your blog and it was great to catch up on your out of state adventures! I know this is out of context but since I met you in the 7th grade you have been flawlessly beautiful- after volleyball practice, without getting ready, at every event and still in every picture! what is the secret?!! you're a lucky girl

I'm glad you had a good thanksgiving. And I'm soo jealous you got to play Phase 10. No one will ever play that game with me. It's my favorite.

Aren't the great lakes wonderful? I grew up on Lake Michigan and it looks just like the ocean too- only its fresh water and there aren't any sharks :)

I'm glad you had a great Thanksgiving!
