Thanksgiving 2016

Hey all! I took a little blogging break over the Thanksgiving holiday but I'm back and ready to dish! I thought I'd share a few photos from our Thanksgiving weekend!!
We had a great time with my family in Little Rock. We drove down early Wednesday so we could have plenty of quality time with everyone. On Thursday morning my Mom, Dad and I participated in our annual Thanksgiving 5k, the Turkey Trot. We do the Turkey Trot together every Thanksgiving that I'm in Little Rock (they still run it without me when I'm not there!) and it's such a great way to start out the day. You don't feel so terrible about yourself for all of the bad stuff you eat when you run a 5k earlier that morning!! I shared some photos of our run on my Instagram stories (@kara2lou).
Once we got home I showered then helped cook a few dishes for our 2:00 Thanksgiving lunch/dinner. Our meal was excellent--it always is. My Mom and Grammy know their way around the kitchen, and we always have so much food, but every last item is delicious! My picky toddler ate more food than I've seen him eat in a long time and baby Bennett had his first taste of sweet potatoes. He was unimpressed.
Later in the evening, we went for a Thanksgiving swim! My parents have a pool and the day before Thanksgiving my Dad started heating it. The temperature reached 95 degrees and it was glorious!!! It was such a fun and unconventional way to end the holiday. Campbell loved swimming and I did too. So much so that I ended up hanging out in the pool until way past my bedtime.
Overall, a great Thanksgiving holiday! Bennett wore the "My 1st Thanksgiving" bib which has been worn in my family by three different babies over the last three years! I think Bennett enjoyed his very first Thanksgiving and I enjoyed it as well. We spent a lot of time enjoying family company, and Scott and I were able to sneak out quite a bit for date nights or even just an hour here and there throughout days to get out and do something fun. It was nice! I hope you all enjoyed your holiday as well!
Come back tomorrow for some fun stuff!!
