We just took a major road trip and visited both of our families in southern Minnesota AND eastern South Dakota.
It was a good (albeit whirlwind) trip which included meeting my niece's fiance and seeing my entire family together at once for the first time in I don't know how long.
Brendan Parks, my chef/photographer nephew, took these photos of our little family. Viewed as a whole they are a perfect representation of us trying hard to get Jack to hold still just long enough for one good shot.
Thanks, Brendan, and happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
