We went home for the past few days to spend Thanksgiving with family, and it was such a welcomed break for us.
It was so good to see family again, including my big sister, who was such a trooper and went running with Clay and me only a few hours following the feast. Even after the daunting task, she went running with us the next morning with three dogs on leashes. She only fell once. ;) I would've crashed down to the ground multiple times with that many animals lunging around.
These photos were taken a little bit before we went on our death run at my husband's parents' home. I always love this view, along with sweet Taco.
Sweet Taco is so willing to be pet every time I see him, and this time was no different. I remember the exact night before leaving for Europe in the summer--the country sky was lit up with fireworks because it was July 4th, and poor Taco was so skittish and practically yelling out of fear. We just stayed with him through the bursts of light and sound, petting his soft ears.
Michelle couldn't tear herself away from the guy. He would just stand as close to the fence as possible, every time she wandered away, waiting for her to come back.
Seeing these shots make me grin and wish I were back in the country again. *Sigh*
And of course, they make me miss family, such as Exhibit A pictured directly ahead. Nevertheless, I couldn't be more grateful for all that I have right here and now.
Hope you guys had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
