2018 Thanksgiving in the Mountains

We drove up Thanksgiving Day to spend Thanksgiving with Stephen's mom's side of the family.  They live a little outside of Asheville, North Carolina.  Right away once we got on the road, Little Miss had the blowout of the century, so we had to stop and deal with that fun. 🙂  Of course, I only [...]
