A St. George Thanksgiving

It was my first Thanksgiving 100% away from my Mom & Dad. We had a Stephenson family reunion & celebrated 60 Years of Marriage for Grandma & Grandpa in
St. George, Utah.I LOVE Jordan's Grandparents. They are amazing people.
What I've enjoyed most about them is that I can have normal everyday conversations with them (they 100% have their wits about them, which I'm sadly not used to with grandparents).
We enjoyed watching a slideshow movie of pictures that went through Grandma &
Grandpa's lives that reminded me of the way things used to be in the 'Good Ole Days'.
Jordan's Aunt Cindy took us on a GREAT hike to work off all that Turkey. I guess I love hiking because I really enjoyed myself. Others did not seem as enthusiastic as me. St. George is absolutely beautiful with all the red rock - which turns into red sand that is not totally hiker friendly, which is where most of the non-enthusiasm came from, I think.

We had a nice time seeing family. I missed my parents on Thanksgiving Day, but believe it or not they were still there when we got home.

Thank you Joe & Natalie for letting us use your spare bed, sit in your spot on the couch, & eat your cereal. You were an excellent host & hostess.
