We had a great trip out to Missouri for Thanksgiving. The Peterson clan converged from four different states. The last time Jory was able to get together with both brothers and his parents was about 3 years ago, so it was time. So we had lots of fun. Thanksgiving was very yummy, we ate our dinner at Jake and Sarah’s. The highlights include an adventure down to Eureka Springs, Arkansas, (mainly so Vangie and I could say that we’d been to Arkansas) and a trip into downtown Branson (which is a really bad idea at 7 pm on a Friday night). Grandma had fun playing with all four (soon to be five!) of her grandkids, who were excellent the entire time. We spent a few nights in an Irish bed and breakfast, which turned out to be wonderful, despite our initial concerns. We did some shopping, and some Jeepin’. Played a few rounds of Cattan, and explored a civil war battlefield.
And Louisa at the Carthage battlefield.
