Thanksgiving Through a Lens
Every year my family treks to Fulton, Missouri to spend Thanksgiving on my Aunt Debbie and Uncle Steve's farm. 70 acres of land, 9 chickens, 6 cows, 5 cats, 4 dogs, 3 hives of bees, and 15 relatives.
These are my photos.
p.s. I don't use filters... duh.

|Chicken Coop sans chickens. Can you spot the eggs?|
|Little does she know, her egg is everyone else's breakfast.|
|Aunt Debbie, aka The Chicken Whisperer. Can you spot the curious cat?|
|My smile is hiding my extreme fear of that chicken.|

|ATV rides - a favorite farm pastime (until they're not)|
|These cars probably haven't been touch in years. Hidden beauty.|
|This baby cow was so interested in the dogs. Carter was interested in Bella. Sitka was just scared.|

It wouldn't be a Reed/Stoner Thanksgiving without someone ending up in the hospital. But hey, accidents happen, and everyone is OK now. Although, the fence is a little worse for the wear.
As I look forward to my time in the Peace Corps, and two years away from home, I really try to appreciate these last few holidays with my family.
I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving, too!
