Thanksgiving 2013

We just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving and share some of our favorite moments from our Thanksgiving travels including stops in the Smokey Mountains of TN and Charlotte, NC before making it home just in time to get everything ready for the styled shoot on Monday (more on that coming soon!). There were SO MANY memories that I want to share but I tried my best to limit what could be a very long post! Seriously, I wanted to include EVERY picture buttt don't worry I'm keeping it short.

DISCLAIMER: Please do not attempt. These are professional ridiculous family members and friends and have years of experience preforming the stunts you are about to see...
