~my family~

i love my family.
all of them.
i don't believe i would be where i am today if it hadn't been for them.
really.

this past weekend we had our Thanksgiving (early).
i am kicking myself for not taking pictures of the food....but of course it was spectacular.
when mom cooks- it could never be any other way.
it was a feast.

of course we all want to sit after the meal....but......
kids are great for inspiring you to move.
so we did.....

Family time is good for the soul. Looks like the grown ups might have hogged the trampoline. ;)

I love it when after a big meal they all get busy and do something.. we always went outside and played baseball.. it was so fun to see my Mom run the bases. She would run and run and run and then when she got across home plate she would run into the house to go to the bathroom. We all laughed..
Looks like you had a great time with your family.. I loved my family too... just like you.

I agree with you 100% about family! I'm not quite sure what I'd do without mine. Thanks for the great post dear!

Awesome way to spend a day, your mom sure looks like she's got spunk!

I see that we're from basically the same neck of the woods, if you don't mind I'm going to follow your journey. I try to get to everyone's site that I follow whenever they post but sometimes life happens and being a full time student (call me crazy at this age!) I do what I can with the time I have. Nice to meet you Dawn and thanks for stopping by my site!

You do have a great family...these pictures make me excited that in 16 days I will be seeing my family in Cape Town.

Looks like so much fun. I love seeing your Mom on the trampoline. Families and friends are definately what makes life worthwhile. I am finding since I am older now that relationships matter more than anything. If you don't have those, life can be pretty lonely and depressing.
