We have so much to be thankful for this year! Our travels and adventures have been amazing to us â€“ God has kept us safe on the roads and led us to experience His awesome creation all through our travels. Weâ€™ve made new friends, reconnected with old friends, and found Godâ€™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 â€“ 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 â€“ we had a really great time! We joined other friends for dinner out â€“ 6 adults and 7 kids. A typical Thanksgiving â€“ and a delightful one at that! While we couldnâ€™t be with our family, we were able to share the holiday with family nonetheless. Here we are with the Sensings after weâ€™ve been stuffed (and before we didnâ€™t have to do any dishes =)! )
Like I said, the day was beautiful!
