Thanksgiving in Cody

We drove to Cody for Thanksgiving.  The trip to Cody was a really wet one - except the hour it was snowing!  It really was one of the wettest drives we have ever had.  We stayed in Missoula and made it to Cody mid-day.

We spent some cousin time at the bowling alley.  

Breckin and Brighton took turns taking the kids out on the 4 wheelers around the yard.  They had a great time!

Treycen and Torin enjoyed some cousin play time.

And the kids got to have some great time with their grandparents.

Travis went hunting on Thanksgiving day and came back with a bunch of birds.  He was outside cleaning them when the kids went out to investigate.  I wasn't sure how it was going to go, but they seemed to be okay with all of it.  Liam did declare that he likes food chicken much better than the animal birds.

The kids had a lot of fun with their grandparents.  One of the favorite activities was reading time.
They loved helping in the kitchen, helping Grandpa make apple pie.  Really, the kids just liked helping out in the kitchen!

Kate particularly loved her reading time.  She found that Heath was a very willing reader (in exchange for snuggle time!).

Kate and Bentley were both really excited to see each other.  They love video chatting with one another and have talked about seeing each other for weeks.  When we arrived, Kate walked around the house looking for Bentley and was sad to hear that she would have to wait to see her the next day.  When Heath and Bri arrived with their kids, Kate came bursting up from downstairs, thrilled to give Bentley a huge hug... until Bentley says, "woah woah woah woah" - she needed to take off her coat.  Then when they finally did hug, Bentley said, "Okay, that's it" meaning that the hug was done.  The girls had a great time together after that, but it was a funny start to their week!
