Gina and I had been a little uncertain over how the boys were going to do on the trip to Texas this Thanksgiving. They have not done so well on previous 12-hour road trips, so we were expecting there to be a few meltdowns along the way. Well, they surprised us once again by handling the whole trip like champs. By the time we got to MaMa's house on Saturday afternoon, they were totally recharged and ready for action. We had a nice lunch at Golden Corral, then we spent the rest of the day playing and visiting at the house. MaMa had to go back to her rehab facility for the night, so I drove her there and we settled in for the night. Gina and the boys went to bed, and I watched the Texas v. Kansas football game.

We are now in Dallas and we've had a great time so far. Gina and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary by going to the Melting Pot for dinner on Sunday night. It was unbelievably delicious, and we once again ate way more than we could hold. We are looking forward to seeing the other set of great-grandparents on Wednesday, then more family on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Here are few more pics of our stop in Shreveport.
