This year we traveled to Baltimore for a long Thanksgiving weekend with Grandma and Paw Paw, Aunt Lizzie and Great Aunt Fran. Thanks to the help of a second portable DVD player, the kids did well on the trip and it was so nice to be surrounded by family, especially family we don’t get to see very often.
The weather was unusually warm—we spent much of Thanksgiving morning outside, at several neighborhood parks.
As usual, Thanksgiving dinner was delicious. The kids especially enjoyed their own kid table this year.
Later that weekend we went to Baltimore’s Festival of Trees—Owen and James loved the train exhibit; Sophie loved the indoor carousel and tattoos.
Andy found his old Battleship game in the basement. Sophie played a good game against him, but Daddy won.
Thankful for family, and being able to travel and spend time with family. Thankful, indeed.
“A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues.” —Cicero
