We had a really wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
We started our Turkey Day at the Turkey Trot that our church has each year. It raises money for our benevolence fund (which pays for the dental program and food pantry needs). Walking a 5 K on Thanksgiving morning is just what you need to help you feel better about consuming all of those calories at dinner!
We had dinner on Thursday at Jason’s aunt’s house. It was a good time and we got to see all of Jason’s family, which is a great thing about the holidays.
On Friday, we slept in and then got up and did nothing. Jonas and I watched “The Sound of Music,” and Jason brought down the Christmas decorations and took care of hanging the lights outside.
We went to my Mom’s house for dinner with my brother and his girlfriend, Polly.
On Friday night, we played the game “Imagine iff…” which is pretty much the most awesome game ever. It was a lot of fun and even Jonas could play.
On Saturday, we went out for breakfast and went for a hike at Audubon Park. We hiked some of the back trails and took some forks to see the sights.
The boys decided to try to swing on some vines. Really, you’re not supposed to do this. But it was too tempting for our men who just had to try it.
