Thanksgiving Travel Log

Well, we are back from our trip to Wyoming. We left Tuesday afternoon to head home for Thanksgiving. We spent Tuesday night at Matthew and Charlene's house. It's always fun to go out to dinner with them and Michael and Emily and visit with everyone. Wednesday morning, Matthew got up and went to feed the animals at the State Vet Lab and took Carson and Christian with him. Carson had been so excited to see the sheep and buffalo, but when he actually got to see them, he was kind of freaked out. After they returned and we ate a yummy breakfast, everyone took off for home.


We made a pit-stop in Thermopolis. My dad and his brother purchased an existing grocery store last month and have transitioned it into another Blair's. So, we stopped to check it out.


Wednesday night and Thursday night we spent with Christian's family. Our Thanksgiving day was great. We started out at Mildred's (Christian's grandma) house for lunch, then ran to Jan's dad's for pie, and then to my families house for dinner. We ate way TOO much, but everything was too good not to!


Friday was the annual Asay family preg. testing day...always fun! Carson had the time of his life helping his dad with the cows. He loves being outside at the farm. After Christian was done helping, we packed up our stuff and headed to my mom's house for the rest of the weekend.








putting out the vibe!







Saturday night, we decided to celebrate Carson's birthday with the family. He will be 3 on Friday, but I thought it would be fun to have a party with all the family there. We had pizza and pop for dinner and cake and cheese cake for dessert. When I would ask Carson what he wanted for his birthday, all he would ever say is a tractor cake. Since I made him one last year, I found some cute farm candles and used those instead. He had a great b-day and was truely spoiled!

Sunday, we decided to only go half way and stayed in Cheyenne with our friends Greg and Janell. It was so much fun to visit and catch up with them. We had so much fun and were so sad to leave. It's hard to believe that we will be back again in 3 weeks for Christmas...my how time flies when you are having fun!
