Thanksgiving Day in the country

Chris' family has a farm and 200 acres of land in east Texas. We spent a relaxing day there yesterday and the kids had fun playing outside and we took a walk down the dirt road. Chris and Thomas did a little more exploring back on the land because Kate was wearing flip flops and not the best for hiking.
We had the big Thanksgiving meal with Chris' aunt, parents and cousins.

they don't make swing sets like they used to

posing for some pictures

even got a rare family picture

Chris' grandfather's truck - 1965 Dodge

Chris' Dad's old truck - 1974 Ford

some fall colors - it is still pretty green in Texas though, winter is still not here yet

this grave marker is one of a group on the side of the dirt road - it is marked Jessie Hendrix, born 1883, died 1884

Great photos! :) I like the ones in front of the barn and the old truck. How sad about the old gravestone. :(
