Thanksgiving

We found out last minute that Craig didn't have to go into his rotation for Thanksgiving, so we headed up to Utah for the holiday! We left as soon as he got off on Tuesday and drove all night to Cedar (next time we are definitely waiting until morning to leave). We spent half our time in Cedar and the other half in St. George.

Jennie and her family drove up from Texas, and Sean and his family flew in from Connecticut! My aunt Pam conveniently just bought a house across the street from my parents, and so we filled both houses up with Prince kids. It was a BIG deal that three of us were together in Texas, and an even bigger deal that three of us were together at my parents' house only three weeks later! 

I was feeling extra grateful this Thanksgiving for my family. Boy do I miss my people when we are apart. It is no fun being spread across the country. There is probably no better feeling than when all 7 of us are together, and it has happened only once in the last 4 years. We are all super excited for next summer when we'll finally all be together for the Prince-Markham wedding! We are SO happy for Steve and excited for Melissa to join our family!
The Gobbler: Princes ran the 10k, 5k, and the 1k... and of course we ran the 1k.

Pretty sure Max came in first for his age division

  1. I was so sad to miss Thanksgiving - but August 2016 is going to be so much fun! Also, I love Max as a wild thing.
