Gobble Gobble!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Most of it spent with family, eating turkey, and watching football. The rest of our time was spent driving! We started out in Beeville at Forrest's family farm. Davis had a blast playing football outside with his cousins and sitting by the huge fire (yay for the lift on the burn ban)! The next day we were sad to leave, but knew we could not miss out a day (possibly the last) in Aggieland with the Longhorns! With A&M heading to the SEC next year, who knows what's in store for the traditional Thanksgiving UT vs A&M football game. My family set up a great tailgate, pumpkin pie and all! Spence Park is the place to be! We got to see the Aggie Band march (a huge hit for Davis) and we also were close to the Alumni Center (great for bathroom breaks, changing diapers, and of with the Aggie ring). Forrest was lucky and had a ticket to the game. Davis and I headed back to the hotel around 7:30pm. I enjoyed a glass of wine and we fell asleep in the 3rd quarter. Pathetic, I realize this, but turned out to be a good thing because I didn't have to endure the last part of the game. My favorite part of the trip was getting up the next morning and walking with Davis around campus. Kelly and Molly happened to be staying at a hotel next to ours, so we ventured out with our strollers. Who else was up at 7am in College Station that morning, no one. We had the sidewalks to ourselves! After a big family breakfast, packing up, and then eating one last time (La Bodega, delicious) we got on the road to Austin. Afterall, what's one more family stop for yet another Thanksgiving meal.
