Family Gratitude

Who wouldn’t want to spend Thanksgiving week doing this?

  1. It looks like a wonderful holiday that will generate a lot of happy memories. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that your nephews will be lobbying for more trips. πŸ™‚


    1. It was a bit cool that day, but much warmer than your beach. πŸ™‚ It was so great to see the kids experience it for the firs time.


    1. As you can see, no bundling here. It was cool when my family was here, light jacket weather. Since they left, we’ve been getting record high temps nearing 90. Feels more like July. I’ll try to fan it up your way. πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by, Andy.


    1. Thanks, Carrie. So many holidays have been quiet, just hubby, dog and me. This one was the kind I always dreamed of during those quiet ones. Thanks for stopping by to check it out.
