Happy Thanksgiving!

I've been AWOL for a week since Luke and Miranda were in town.  We had such a great visit with them!  One day, we went to the zoo -- it was the day our temperatures hit a record high of 80 degrees. And then the next day we got four inches of snow;)  It happens in these parts.

It was such a magical day.  There were very few people there, and while it was a warm day, there was a soft breeze blowing leaves all about.  We took our time, rode the carousel and the train, and had lunch.


I didn't take a lot of pictures, but crammed in as much grandma time as I could.  We celebrated an early Thanksgiving on Sunday, because Luke had to leave the next morning.  Miranda and the kids are staying with her grandma for a few more days.

It has been nice having this lull between our Thanksgiving and the start of the Christmas rush.  I always wish that Thanksgiving could linger a bit, and this year I got my wish.

And I got my wish, with time spent with four of my favorite people!
