Thanksgiving trip to Missouri

We haven't gone home the past two thanksgiving, due to school last year and Isaac's awaited arrival the year prior. So finally this year we were able to hop on the old tradition of treking home for turkey day. Since it is a long trip 8-10 hours (10-12 hours with a toddler) we decided to make a week out of it. Luckily we were able to get a lot of family visits in which was nice.

We started with Kyle's family the first few nights.

Isaac's grandma pulled out this little chair from the basement that worked perfectly for his spot at the table.

Kyle's parents actually live in the same town my parents grew up in so I have some of my side of the family there as well. We paid a visit to my Uncle's house. Isaac got to see his second cousin Zach and his mom as well as his Great Aunt/Uncle.

Then we headed down south another hour and a half to stay with my family for the remainder of the week. Isaac was such a good boy being with all the adults and seeing so many family members. It was nice for him to just let lose with his cousins and play, play, play!!

He loved having Aliyah "Dea" read to him. He is still talking about her.

We went over to the new house to take a look at all the remodeling. Isaac took a spill in the hallway knocking his head into the corner of the door frame. Swell up really quick to quite the goose egg, but luckily went back down almost as fast. The picture doesn't really do it justice.
