This year, Thanksgiving was spent at Alex's parent's house in Parowan.
We were finished with school on Tuesday and headed down that evening with Alex's sister Cami.
We were so excited to finally have a break from school!
We got down there Tuesday night and chatted then went to bed. 
Wednesday morning, I went for a run around Parowan.
I had a great run.
We messed around for a while after that.
Alex and I rode bikes to the grocery store to get the ingredients for the key lime pie I was in charge of.

We went over to the track to see Cami run.
I helped Cami with some homework.
Then Cheryl and the babies arrived.
That night we went 4 wheeling with Alex's cousins.

After 4 wheeling, we went and played basketball.
We had lots of fun with Alex's family and his cousins.

Thursday was Thanksgiving!
I got up that morning and ran with Cheryl. 
We ran to go see the boys playing football.
Our run turned out to be a little bit longer because we had to search to find them.
We watched them for a second, but then ran home to watch the babies.
We got ready for the day and around 2:30 we ate!
I've never been the one to eat a ton on Thanksgiving, but I do eat lots of pie.
I love pie.

 So thankful for him.

Sadly I didn't have any apple pie this year, so I'll have to get me some this week!
After we ate, we lounged around, took a nap, played some games.
That night, I helped Cami with her Thanksgiving tradition of putting an M on the sign of a Dental Clinic so it'll say "Mental Clinic". 
At midnight, Cami, Cheryl, Joyce and I went to Walmart for a little black friday action.
It was wild. 
But we got some goodies.

Friday, another morning run, then Alex and I took the babies to feed the horses. 
They love the horses and they know how to say "neigh".
When we were feeding the horses, Alex's dad said we should go to Lehman's Cave.
So we hurried, got ready, and headed out.
We drove out to Lehman's cave, had lunch and waited for our tour.
I was trying to suck it up, but I'm terrified of caves.
I'm not sure why.
It's not claustrophobia because it doesn't happen in all small spaces.
It's just the uneasiness of being underground, in tight spots.
Overall it was an enjoyable trip, with the exception of the hour in the cave.

Saturday, Alex and I took the babies to feed the horses again.
Around noon, Cheryl, Alex, Joyce and I headed to St. George.
We had some in n' out burger and did a little shopping. 

We came back to Parowan in time for the candlelight parade and for the lighting of main street.
It was really fun, but cold.

After the parade, we played basketball again with Alex's cousins. 
Not as fun as the first night, but still fun.

Sunday we lounged around, but also took the babies again to see the horses.
We went to church, had dinner, and headed back home.

We had a great Thanksgiving break.
It was so hard to come back to school, but only 3 more weeks until Florida!
