Our Non-Traditional Thanksgiving

We went to Austin this Thanksgiving so Sam could play in a football tournament.  The tournament was so poorly run, it drove me crazy! But we did have a great time.  We have so much to be Thankful for and it was nice to spend time together. 
We ate a traditional turkey dinner with family Wednesday night.   Thursday morning we decided to get on the road and get breakfast along the way.  By the time we stopped, the McDonald's the boys picked wasn't serving breakfast. So, we all had cheeseburgers for breakfast.  Once we arrived in Austin, we went to IHOP for lunch.  And ended up eating breakfast. 
We spent most of Thursday in the hotel room watching football.  Somehow, little Brennan was the best behaved. He just hung out playing with his toys and sticker books.  "It's stuck!" is his favorite thing to say right now.  Of course it's stuck, it's a sticker!
Friday Sam didn't have a game until the afternoon so we took the boys to the Austin Children's Museum.  They had a great time.

Saturday was a long day at the fields but the boys were great!  At one point they all feel asleep.

Sam's team finished playing late Saturday afternoon and we ate breakfast for dinner at IHOP (again).  We tried to crash at the hotel but someone pulled the fire alarm twice. I had just gotten Brennan to sleep and, thankfully, he sleep right through both alarms. As did Sam. 

Sam's 10th birthday was Sunday so we took our time packing up and heading out.  We went to Round Rock Donut (as seen on Man vs. Food) for breakfast.  Sam got a giant donut to celebrate his double digits.
When we finally got home, my next door neighbor/sister in law, was running to the grocery store. She graciously agreed to get Sam a little cake so he could have something to blow out his candles. I hadn't planned for a cake because I wasn't sure when we'd be home.  I still can't believe my first born is 10!
