Thanksgiving Weekend With More Family

We had the privilege of hosting my cousin and his wife this weekend. They live in Minneapolis, were over in Wisconsin for Thanksgiving and drove from there 6 1/2 - 7 hours here! They are on their way back right now - an 11 - 12 hour drive! We really appreciate them making the drive over. I hadn't seen Joey and his wife Jamie since Thanksgiving in Wisconsin two years ago. And that was a family reunion, so there wasn't really one on one time with anyone. Long distance is a major factor in losing touch, but we had a great time catching up! It was so much fun to hang out as adults!

They came bearing gifts - it felt like Christmas! The conversation was wonderful! Saturday afternoon I took them to an orchard market/gift shop a half hour from here - a favorite spot that I take most guests! And they took us out to eat Saturday night to a brewery/deli in our small town. We had never been before and loved it! We met up with some friends from town and had a great time!

Sunday they accompanied us to church and then left after lunch.

Oh, and by the way, we were able to drive everywhere together in our mini van!:)

Thank you Joey and Jamie for making the trip over and showering us with love while here! We look forward to the next time!
