We are wrapping up our time in Arkansas. All the Eldridges are slowly filtering back to their homes and the big family reunion is coming to an end. This week was filled to the brim with cousins, home-cooked meals, games, laughter and even more home-cooked meals!
The early morning risers were met with a crackling fire and a cup of coffee…
By the time breakfast was over, the kids were running outside and playing on the zipline. Several years ago all the guys rigged up this semi-safe aparatus and it’s become a fan favorite!
Here’s a glimpse of Thanksgiving Day…that’s a lot of people! (and this table didn’t include any of the 10 children there) We were all so thankful to be together and thankful for our gracious hosts!
Aunt Terri let Jillian ring the dinner bell…such a big honor. And Jillian took her job very seriously!
After dinner we all went for a walk. These are the walks I’ll miss…walks at home just aren’t the same!
I’m not normally really into landscapes, but I just had to take a few pictures at sunset. The frozen ice on the trees and the colors of changing seasons look like a painting.
My cousin Katie is also a photographer, so I was lucky enough to be able to hand my camera over to her capable hands and be in front of the lens! We spent a good chunk of yesterday doing family pictures, so I’m excited to share those as well. But for now, we pack up and get ready to make the long trip home tomorrow!
