We sent our kids before us to Mimi's house on Wednesday. It was a big decision to put the lives of our kids in the hands of Ryan, but we felt like it was a good time to let him stretch a little. I'm thrilled they had so much fun. They had the camera and documented their 2 hour drive, fishing in the river, and hiking. Thanksgiving is the only time of the year that we all get together with Richard's parents and sisters, with all 11 of our kids and enjoy a good, stress-free time together.
