We headed back to Cali for Thanksgiving! It was a much needed break from school and the cold weather. We got there very early Saturday morning because it took us 3 and a half hours to get over Donner Pass going 30 MPH with chains on. We got to my parents house went straight to bed only to be awakened by my family a few hours later while my dad was making apple pancakes which were delicious! Up until Thanksgiving day we really didn't do much but relax which was perfect for us. Thanksgiving day was so much fun and me and Matt were both very excited about the Thanksgiving food (we have been craving for a few weeks by this point) haha. Here are some pictures of some if the events!
|Here is one of the activities of the week. In my parents back yard a huge tree fell down so the job was to cut it apart and drag everything to the firepit. This picture is of Brian handling the chain saw.|
|Here is Matt getting to use the second biggest chain saw in the world. He was so proud of himself getting to cut the big trunk of the tree!|
|Then we couldn't keep in out of the mud hahah|
