This year, Dad, Jack, Derrick and I played a round of disc golf on Thanksgiving morning. Hickory has a super long course. We played captains choice. Dad and Derrick vs. Jack and I. Dad had never played before and they still won! Derrick can't lose at anything...ever.
Here are a couple pics of the Thanksgiving prep!
Tree hunting is a big deal in my family. It's a competition every year to find the best tree and we usually make a day of it by going to the mountains and cutting ours down from there. This year, Grandma wasn't up for a trip to the mountains so we stuck close to home, but that didn't mean we put less thought into it.
Here's Dad measuring the size of the tree we'd be looking for and then putting his measuring system to use at the tree lot!
Tree inspection is very important!
And a couple of family shots after we found the perfect one!
Derrick and I left straight from the tree hunt for Myrtle Beach. In another change of tradition, his family rented a friend's beach house and spent the long weekend at Myrtle Beach. We spent most of the weekend being lazy, throwing frisbee on the beach, and playing with Derrick's cousins! It was a great and exhausting weekend! I do have some pics of that thanks to Leanna.
I don't know how the kids did it, but they all got in the ocean. It was way to cold for that!
It was a great weekend with family The rogue proved to be an excellent road tripping car and despite the middle of nowhere towns we were driving through, we managed to make the long trips go by pretty quickly! Lots of Christmas posts will be coming soon! If you want a Christmas card make sure I have your address....they are hilarious and you don't want to miss it!
