this year the ashton's joined us for thanksgiving! grandma lill, grandpa clarke, grandma diane, shauna, alyssa, ryan and mike all flew out for a few days. the boys loved having visitors!! it was so fun to have everyone here! these pics are from a few of the activities we did:
here's kade, grandma lill, and crew keeping score for a backyard baseball game.
walking to dinner with uncle ry-ry
clarke getting a little crazy on the playground equipment
the clam before the storm
loads of food to load up on!
on friday we went to downtown fort worth to visit the stockyards, we've actually never been (shocking, i know...)
kade and crew getting ready to watch the cattle walk, and keeping warm in dad and grandpa's coats
here comes the cowboys leading the cattle down the main street.
i took video of the cattle walk, thinking it was this huge, famed thing. the video lasted 45 seconds, the picture above pretty much fills you in.
walked around downtown, while alyssa caught a ride on this wooden horse.
grandma lill, grandma diane, shauna and alyssa took the boys on a stagecoach ride, the boys loved it!
after some initial trepidation about a pony ride (and who can blame them), the stagecoach ride loosened the boys up, and gave them the confidence to ride. thankfully the twins requested that shauna and alyssa walk with them so i was able to watch from outside the guardrail.
the ashton's opted for bbq that night so we hit up hard 8 and the original ashton kids snapped some quick pictures.
the next day before everyone left we took some family photos. here's how our little family's turned out:
we're big fans of grey key photography !
It was a busy couple of days but really fun. I love watching the boys interact and keep all their family members on their toes! we're thankful we could have so many visitors to share thanksgiving with!
