We drove down to San Diego to have Thanksgiving with John, Amy and little Aiden. It was worth the drive!! We had a great time! We were surprised we didn't hit much traffic going down Wednesday morning. I think we made it in record time. Which was great because we had more time to visit.
|Evan is a nephew magnet! They are very attracted to him!!|
Wednesday afternoon we visited the Mormon Battalion Memorial. I had never been there before. Actually I had never even been to Old Town San Diego before.

The memorial was awesome. The display and video's were interesting to watch. I liked how the portraits on the wall came to life. You could really experience what it was like for these brave faithful men, women and little boy!

Thanksgiving day, we just hung out, played games, went for a nice walk to the park and of course ate a yummy turkey dinner. Thank you, Amy!!
Friday we had a great visit with my brother Doug and his family. I could kick myself I didn't get out my camera and take pictures. Especially, since Doug was sporting a new beard. We had fun catching up on all the exciting news about finding long lost family.
After our visit with Doug we headed to Katie, Brad and Kyle's house. Saturday was Katie's birthday so we celebrated with her at Grandma and Grandpa Price's house. Last few times we have visited Grandpa has surprised us, and stayed out and visited with us the whole time. He used to get tired and go to the back bedroom to watch TV and nap. We always enjoy our visits with them. Our niece Tiffany came over too!! I admire her a lot too. She is busy working on a master degree, and needed a relaxing day!
|Kyle and Grandma!! He doesn't cuddle very long any more, too much to explore!!|
|See what I mean about a nephew magnet!! It's the wheels!!|
|Grandma Price eating out of the ice cream carton.|
|Then sharing with Evan. He didn't really want to be spoon fed, but how can one resist ice cream, especially if you are a Price??|
|The beautiful face of Tiffany!!|
|Brad getting in a much deserved nap. (p.s. Brad, Katie took the picture and Evan gave me permission to post this, I'm innocent!!!)|
|Katie Rose, 29 forever!!|
|Kyle found a cool little cubby!! He even bypassed the cat food to get there!!|
This is why little boys pants don't last long!!
We headed home Saturday. As fun as it is to see family, there is no place like home. Now we are getting ready for a wonderful Christmas with all of our children home!!
