Giving Thanks

After moving to Nebraska, holidays with our extended families is much more doable.  For Thanksgiving this year, we drove down to St. Louis to spend the weekend with my husband's birth mom and her family.  It was a fantastic weekend, filled with so much food, love, newness, memory-making, and friendship building.  One of the highlights of our trip was taking a walk down to the lake.  On the way there, we passed a fort in a wooded ravine.  We could tell the builders of this fort were long gone, but they kept everything in tact for passersby.  The kids helped rebuild the fort, played on the tire swing, and posed for some pictures.  We made memories that we will cherish forever and are so thankful that we have this new family and extended family that has welcomed us in like their own.
