Highlights of the Week
- My family came back from Florida with a bit of adventure. Their flight developed pressure problems mid-flight, and the pilot had decided to return to Tampa. They arrived home a day later, tired, but safe and happy to be home
- My parents came on Monday to spend Thanksgiving with us.
- It was nice to have a shorter week with more time to sleep in and spend with my family.
ThanksgivingMy Mom takes over turkey prep when she comes to visit us, so we only had to do the side dishes. Our best friends came over, and we had a very nice evening with a terrific turkey. We didn’t even have that much leftovers – by Friday evening Thanksgiving meal became just a pleasant memory.
Places We Are Going
On Friday, we took my parents to one of our favorite parks – Henry Cowell Redwood State Park. This particular park has an easy 1 mile loop among majestic redwood trees – perfect for a short visit. Smarty was happy with the length of the visit, since she wanted more time to have her grandparents all to herself :)
