For Thanksgiving, Race and I headed home late after his game on Wednesday night. Last year we had Thanksgiving with Race's family, so this year it was with mine at the bowling alley. (It was funny to see comments on family members' pictures that were like "What poor bowling alley is open on Thanksgiving?" Haha, Jorgensen's Lanes is, but only for the Jorgensen's. :)) We ate SO much food, bowled, and played arcade games. It was so nice to see family who we hadn't seen in a while. It was also really good to have Race with me for Thanksgiving, because he is leaving today (the day after Thanksgiving) for another road trip. :( I am so grateful, though, that we could even have one day together with our families! After we ate dinner and hung out at the bowling alley for a while, we finally got a ride in our plane! My dad and uncle bought a plane a while back, and since then a couple of my cousins have gotten their pilot license. So my cousin took me, Race, and Kate flying up around the valley. It was awesome, and I can totally see how that can be such a hobby and a rush for some people! Who knows, maybe one day I'll get my license. :) Afterwards, we went to Race's grandparents' house and visited with them and my in-laws. Then we headed home at about 10! Race leaves in a couple hours. I'm sure I'll just spend the rest of the weekend online shopping - the deals going on right now are amazing! But my mom is making me ship them to her house so I don't wear anything before Christmas. Hahaha. She knows me too well! Here are a bunch of pictures from our 20 hours at home!
