Thanksgiving Weekend

This year for Turkey Day we went to Tucson to spend Thursday with the Ashton Family.
Somehow we missed getting a picture of Dallin. But these are Ken's Brothers. We were having fun playing outside in the rain while the Turkey cooked. It was a very wet day. It would rain and then the sun would shine for an hour and then back came the clouds. After dinner we had some very tasty pie (Thanks Shannon) and then we played cards til the wee hours of the morning. Mostly just Me and Ken and Mom. Everyone else was a sissy.

Friday morning we got up to make the drive to Central (it's near Safford). While in Benson we encountered some problems. Not only was gas a whopping $2.79/ gal, the Taco Bell we got for lunch was terrible....

I don't have to run faster than the dinosaur...

... just faster than Ken.

We had never been to Benson and we had never made the drive from Tucson to Central so we got to see the back side of Mt. Graham. It rained part of the drive but not to bad and we made it to Central in one piece.
It was Ken's first time to go to Grandma Carmen's so I had fun giving him the grand tour and explaining that you weren't allowed to slide down the laundry shoot or use the intercom. We had another delicious meal and had fun playing with all the cousins.

You know when you stop at Benson you're only a half hour from our home :) If you don't have the time to come all the way down I could come up and meet you in Benson some time.
