Turkey-Day Adventures

I guess the title of this post should be Turkey-Weekend Adventures ;)
We had a great Thanksgiving holiday with some of my family in Spokane...my parents and sister Celeste drove up from Vancouver, WA, my sister Corrie came from BYU-I, and we all stayed with my awesome sister Natalie and her sweet family.

AIRPLANE RIDES
* While we're smiling and sharing kisses in these pictures, we weren't all chipper the whole time...we left Salt Lake @ 9:30pm on a flight that should have taken less than 2 hours to get to Spokane, but ended up traveling for more than 9 hours...we were delayed because of technical difficulties on the plane, we couldn't land in Spokane due to fog, landed in an airport 100 miles away from Spokane, got a car ride with some very nice strangers, then had car trouble, but thankfully Heavenly Father was watching over us and we arrived safely at 6:30am (7:30 our time)...whew! *

CANDY TURKEYS
* Notice what's in Adam's (redshirt) nose...yes, that would be candy corn, haha! *
