Doug, Drue, Trent and Carly are staying with Kim, Marc and family. The kids would be bored out here. They always have a good time with their cousins.
Everyone arrived in time to help cook the dinner this morning. We were traditional except for a tossed salad made by Kim and a pumpkin dessert made by Drue. Both were exceptional. I’ll post recipes later.
In the afternoon, we took a walk around the pasture, which is where the picture above was taken.
Then it was kicking back, watching a little football and finally a second hit at the food. The kids headed back to Kim & Marc’s. Before they left, we decided to try out luck at a little late night shopping and planned to meet again at 8:30 pm.
We went, we observed, we came home. Unbelievable. The line to get into Target met the line to get into ToysRUs. Both together were close to two blocks long. Thinking that waiting in either of these lines was not an option, we headed to WalMart. We knew it wasn’t good when the entire huge parking lot was full as well as the adjacent Barnes and Noble. The inside was crazy. They had big shrink wrapped piles of items with people clustered around them all faced toward the stack. Who ever took the shrink wrap off those items had better have an escape route in mind.
So, back home. We’ll try again tomorrow. Still a Thanksgiving Day to remember on so many levels.
