A California Thanksgiving

For Thanksgiving this year we traveled to Northern California to visit Lindsey, Matt & our beautiful new niece Sloane.  GMa & Papa Ship  joined us from Florida making it a complete Shiplett/Hjermstad family affair.  We have so much for be thankful for this year, including being able to spend so much time with family!  Connor is getting pretty good at traveling through airports & on planes, but we still have to work on the sleeping in a hotel room.  The weather was perfect fall weather & the falling leaves were absolutely beautiful.  We enjoyed a yummy Thanksgiving Dinner, lots & lots of football, a few walks around the beautiful city of Danville & loving on the babies.  I also got a few opportunities to work on my photography skills with my new Canon 40D camera.  An early Christmas present thanks to the wonderful Carrie Terrones & her need to upgrade her camera.  I am still very much a beginner, but I am trying!  Below are some fun photos of the weekend....

The babies hanging out together or should I say laying around :)  
I definitely think they have some similar Shiplett features!
