Thanksgiving Vacation 2012

This year for Thanksgiving we traveled to Utah to spend the holiday with my Dad's family. We made it just in time for the annual Speakman Reunion! It was so great to see everybody and let the kids get to know their cousins. 
One of the activities for the night: Pinata of course! And who broke it? The amazing, all powerful BRAXTON!! (he was pretty much the only boy not surprising.)

The kids with all their LOOT! 

WEdnesay before Thanksgiving, Brian and Neil and their fams took us and Jessica and her girls out to the FREEZING COLD mountains where we PLAYED!!!! They brought their TOYS and we spent the day riding quads and bikes and having a grand ol' time! 

The beautiful Bella and Aunt Joan!

Conrad enjoying his lunch

Just chillaxin!

Brax on the "kiddie" quad. He fell in love with this thing, and wouldn't give it back until he HAD to...

All the girlies, eatin lunch

Uh...Justin's idea, not mine!

He had a little too much fun...

Did I mention it was C-O-L-D???

Neil, "initiating" Justin. I had my turn before this. I thought I was gonna die...

 After Thanksgiving we visited Justin's best bud Chad and Rachel and their kiddos. It was so good to see them again and catch up. We love their fam! We went to the park for lunch and some play time. This was one of the coolest parks I've ever been to! Check out this swing!

Braxton and Bridger...buds already. Makes their daddies very happy! 

And now its CHRISTMAS time (already? seriously?) and we have been holiday-a-fying this place like crazy! The kids did great helping to put up the Christmas tree.

The finished product! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
