Thanksgiving 2015 in Utah

So this has been a week of travel and celebration for our family. We traveled to Utah to spend time with the family this week for Thanksgiving and had a great trip. We left last Friday morning and drove Friday and Saturday to get to Utah. We spent the week dividing our time between our families and having a grand ol’ time! Here are some photos from our trip.

Grandma and Grandpa Arnesen drove with us from Texas to Utah. They were great with the kids.

James got a lemon somehow during the pie making party and he loved sucking on it. When we tried to take it, he had a fit.

We had some bad weather on our way back to Texas. We had icy roads into and out of Santa Rosa, New Mexico. We decided to go the long way around through Fort Stockton instead of trying to go through Lubbock in an ice storm.
