We spent this Thanksgiving down in Richmond visiting my brother and his in-laws. We had a huge feast with around 30 adults and kids total. Three turkeys were cooked; 1 traditional style in the oven, 1 deep fried after soaking in brine, and the last was injected and coated with delicious cajun seasoning then deep fried. Delicious!

Its turning into a Richmond tradition that we all go shooting guns on turkey day and this year didn't disappoint. Rory just purchased a brand new auto loading Remington 870 shotgun that we had fun breaking in. His in-laws had an old pickup truck that no longer worked that we were able to push into the woods to shoot up. We had a blast shooting out the tires, windshield, and everything else on the truck. Even the wives came out for a little fun. Rory also recently purchased a clay pigeon trap that we set up and fired a couple boxes of clays from. Overall it was a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday.

Here are some videos of the boys having fun.

Dinner Time

This is pretty much a typical dinner for us. The kids usually act goofy, Samara throws her food and tries to get out of the high chair. The only thing atypical about this video is that Logan ate this whole plate of food. There's normally crying, tears, threats of being grounded, and near throwing up.

Kids playing together. Dad playing games.

Samara and Logan love playing together - here they're in one of their rowdy moods. As usual, the rough housing only ends once someone gets hurt.
