The holidays came and went so quickly I am in shock that it’s almost February. Here are just a few photos to recap our entire holiday season.
First up: Thanksgiving! My parents drove out to DC to spend the holiday with Kyle and I. This was our first Thanksgiving married, and were really pumped to use our new china to eat a meal prepared using our other wedding gifts.
While mom and I shopped on Black Friday Dad andKyle spent the day at the Udvar Hazy Center of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
For Christmas, we packed up the car and drove out to Ohio to visit both families. Lilly came with us too (hey, she’s old and can’t handle a new babysitter at this age). After visiting with the Zellers we spent most of the week with my parents in their new kitchen enjoying way too much food.
I’m so thankful we were able to spend a fantastic night in Dayton visiting with some of my best girls before hitting the road.
Speaking of the road, we took Rt. 50 the ENTIRE trip from Cincinnati to DC. It was an experience I would highly recommend to any fellow highway-haters out there. The trip is both scenic and fascinating, sometimes a trip through time.
You get rivers, mountains, valleys, crumbling towns, big towns, Civil War battlefields, and a lot of Dairy Queens. There was a lot of beauty I’d love to go back and capture for real sometime.
And yes, that’s Lilly’s preferred spot for the car ride – except for when she was wanting snuggle time on Kyle’s lap. She’s so sweet when she’s sleeping isn’t she?
Once we made it back – it was time for New Year’s Eve! We were a little late to the party store and had to do a DIY-option with a pack of pirate hats. We just stayed local and low-key.
Now that we’re rested, it’s time for another adventure! What’s next?
