This year it's a little bittersweet. My Mom and Tom could not make it because of what's been going on with her broken shoulder. Due to some clots she was not allowed to fly.
And this year Emily was determined to run the Turkey Trot.
So we signed both kids up for the 1/2 mile Wing Ding in Long Beach and began a new tradition.
I was surprised at how crowded it was and how many parents were running it with their kids. I suddenly realized how hard it would be to find the kids if they didn't see us right away at the finish line. We made a quick meet-up point for post-race and I was more than THANKFUL that William went right there and was waiting for us!! I guess they are growing up!! :)
And what's the Turkey Trot without some chicken chucking?!
Even Pearl got a treat as she swam down at the dog park.
Later that day we had our neighbors over and enjoyed lots of food and drink! The weather was perfect and we had a wonderful weekend getting all the Christmas stuff out. I did a little shopping and am feeling a little more organized going into a very busy season!! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
And now ---- a few candids I just had to show you!
