Thanksgiving Trip

We went to Destin, FL for our Thanksgiving trip this year with all the Mitchells.  As always, it was a fabulous time.

We went to "Gulfarium" where we saw the animal life in the Gulf.

There was a 5K that a few of the brave ran.  We even had some trophy winners for their age groups!  Hooray Ryan and Lorrie!

 I love this picture of Kirk jumping across the finish line.

Instead of having shirts made for this race, people donated old race shirts from other races.  They told the spectators we could all pick out a shirt, too.  Jana found this winner.  

All the Mitchell runners:

And, of course, some fun on the beach:

And don't forget a hearty Thanksgiving meal.
Plus some naps.

Before the trip we had a little fun, too.  We took some of the kids' friends with us to a local dairy farm for a "Homeschooler's Day" - 

And we had a sad day saying goodbye to Elder Mauer.  Our exchange student, Raya, has been taking the missionary discussions and we have all grown quite close with them.  We were sad to see him go, but are glad for the memories we'll always cherish of bringing someone to the gospel.  What an amazing experience.
