Early Thanksgiving morning, Kevin and Andrew left to participate in the ward Turkey Bowl. They don't remember if they won or lost, or even who's team they were on, but they had a ton of fun and got REALLY muddy!
When they got back from their game, Kevin and I packed up the stroller and headed out for our annual Turkey Trot. We didn't have enough money to register for a real one this year, so we had our own "Poor Man's Turkey Trot" on the streets of Detroit and on a nearby track :)
After we conquered our 4 mile run, we showered and began preparations for our amazing Thanksgiving feast, complete with Kalua Turkey, homemade rolls, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, jello salad, and pie... LOTS of PIE!
Then it was time to veg out! Lily took her usual place on Jennies lap where they watched Dora the Explorer via the iPod, read scriptures, and snacked on leftovers.
Brooklyn also managed to lay claim on someone... her Uncle Andrew. Unfortunately for him, she is a little less peaceful than Lily which resulted in Andrew getting poked, prodded, and pounced on for hours on end!
And dear old Kevin vegged out Nintendo style (with a little company from Andrew.)
The next day we headed over to the Henry Ford Museum (compliments of my sister Erin).
We saw LOTS of planes, trains, and automobiles.
And some weird statues as well! (3 out of the 5 people in this picture are fake.)
And then we let all the kids play to their hearts content... adult kids included.
But of course, Brooklyn's favorite thing at the museum was not inside, but outside... and not technically part of the museum either :)
That night we enjoyed a fondue party and a Stargate marathon before heading to bed to rest for our long drive home in the morning.
We had so much fun with the Smith's and are so grateful for their friendship and hospitality. The food was great, the activities were great, and the company was fantastic!
