Of all the things I am grateful of, Family is always top of mind when it comes to a "Thankful list." While they have always been on top of that list, they have become even more important over the last few years as I have lived outside of my parents home. Now that i am not in constant contact with them, I realize how much I have learned from them and how the person I am today is due greatly to what I have learned from each of them. Each member of my family, Jergensen and Heiner side, has special talents and gifts and i love the bond we all have. I was lucky to be able to have the Jergensen side of the family come visit for a week over their Thanksgiving break to be with me and Colby. It was such a great, memorable week. Yes, I will never forget the image of wall to wall mattresses in our extra room with 3 people piled on top, the cold showers I would take because our little water heater wasn't made to heat water for 8 showers, or trying to create a table that would seat all 8 of us for our Thanksgiving feast, but most importantly, I won't forget the conversations we had, the laughs we shared and relationships we built upon. Thanks, family, for a great week. Can't wait for you to come back someday!
Here is a photo story of what we spent our time doing.
We did a lot of eating... a little exercising...
Hanging out at the house playing Jenga
Happy Birthday Nathan. You made it just in time so we could all celebrate the special day together!
Bowling was a blast. The below picture shows a true image of "like mother, like daughter." Identical bowls from form to final shot. Unfortunately it was a gutter for both. Pretty funny though.
What is a visit to Arkansas without the Walmart tour?
Lindsey and I had some fun experimenting with the camera. See my favorites on my new photography blog, katieheinerphotography.blogspot.com
