Ok so I know I told you all we decided to drive to Michigan to see family for Thanksgiving and then my husband was going to go hunting with my dad. Well here is the rest of the story. :)
Finally we were back in the car and heading to Cabela's. We only have Bass Pro around us and since my dad introduced M to Cabela's we HAVE to stop every time we are near. Which I don't mind because it is a really neat store. Plus my amazing husband bought me this:
We were able to meet up with my cousin and see his new house and meet his new girlfriend. I really like her. She is the most normal, level headed one yet. I think they are pretty perfect for each other. I was glad I finally got to meet her. My cousin and I grew up as close as brother and sister without living together. It was the best of both worlds. In high school I was always the last one to meet the girlfriends. I knew he was serious about someone if I met them. So, I am happy that I got to meet her and that I like her.
Wednesday night my grandparents and aunt arrived at my dad's house. My grandma and grandpa were finally able to meet Baby E. I think the kids wore them out. But it was still nice that they were finally able to spend some time with both of our kids.
Thursday M spent most of the day installing heated seats in my dad's truck. I was inside with the kids. We had a great dinner and I ended up taking a nap before we headed out. We left that night for the deer camp for my dad and M to go hunting.
I went to bed early that night because I wasn't feeling good. It was amazing getting some extra sleep. M and my dad got up early the next morning to go out. They spent most of the day out in the blind trying to get a deer. They were not successful. :( I was stuck in a little cabin with both kids. Thankfully the Ranch we were on breeds deer and had one that was super friendly. M finally got his deer the next morning. He got a huge 10 point. I am very proud of him!!!!! We are going to get it mounted. Where it will be hung is beyond me.
the kids calling the deer over and then getting licked
by said deer. Baby E thought it was the greatest thing EVER!
Saturday night we drove back to my dad's then headed back to Florida on Sunday. Both kids did amazing in the car and the trip was a nice one. I am glad we were able to go up there and see my family. It was a nice time away, but it also felt great to be home again.
