Much to be thankful for.....



Thanksgiving week was one of the most amazing trips our family has ever gone on, in fact it is currently the only trip our family has gone on thus far. That being beside the point, it will forever be one of the most amazing Thanksgivings ever, because we spent it with my Mother's entire family (on her father's side). Nineteen of us in all! My Wonderfully Generous Grandfather, his amazing wife, Grandma Patty (GG Patty) and my grandfather's 6 daughter (yes, 6) and their respective families! We all made it, no one was missing!!
We all set off for St Johns in the US Virgin Islands from our respective homes throughout the country and we made it to & from safe and sound! It was an absolutely incredible week spent with our family in 2 houses!
We spent time catching up, playing at the beach, soaking up the weather and talking about what an amazing husband, father, grandfather & great grandfather our Grandpa was!!!
In fact, this was my Grandfather's 80th birthday celebration and my grandfather TOOK US on the adventure of a lifetime. We were all so pleased we had the opportunity to go! Yes, even 5 week old Adelaide and her zombie mother had the most amazing time. Thank you a million Grandpa for the most amazing trip!!! We all loved spending time together! Doesn't happen often and we are so blessed you brought us all together to do just that!
Happy 80th Birthday to one Amazing Man!
Love, AKI&A
