We have so much to be thankful for this year! Our travels and adventures have been amazing to us – God has kept us safe on the roads and led us to experience His awesome creation all through our travels. We’ve made new friends, reconnected with old friends, and found God’s people all around us. It has truly been a trip of a lifetime. And of course, the safe arrival of Hayley Elizabeth made the holiday all the more special.
The actual day of Thanksgiving for us was looking like a regular travel day. We were headed from north Florida to South Carolina and were just planning on grabbing a turkey platter at a Cracker Barrel Restaurant along the way. At the very last minute we were able to connect with our friends Troy and Georgi Sensing (and kids) in Amelia Beach, FL. What a blessing that was! We parked at a beach access near their home and got to watch the sun rise over the ocean.
The day was beautiful – a little cool, but bright and sunny with hardly a cloud in the sky. Troy, the kids and I headed to the beach while Gary hung back at the house, taking naps and playing with the remote. Check out the pictures page for some of our beach photos – we had a really great time! We joined other friends for dinner out – 6 adults and 7 kids. A typical Thanksgiving – and a delightful one at that! While we couldn’t be with our family, we were able to share the holiday with family nonetheless. Here we are with the Sensings after we’ve been stuffed (and before we didn’t have to do any dishes =)! )
Like I said, the day was beautiful!
