We had a lovely trip upstate to gma and gpa S's house for Thanksgiving. Noah automatically attached himself to the gma's collection of matchbox cars and he loved having a yard to run freely through and kick around some leaves. It was so nice to be able to spend the day with family and not have to cook :)... thanks mom!
We topped the weekend off with a fabulous bowling trip -- gotta love the 'burbs! Noah had a blast watching us knock down stuff with giant balls... a toddler boy's dream! He did get frustrated, however, when he tried to lift the balls and he couldn't. But he was easily distracted by the car video games, and life was good again.
It's so easy to get wrapped up in the hussle and bussle of the holiday season and lose sight of the things that we are grateful for. I love Thanksgiving because it always gives me a chance to sit back and think about how grateful I am for what I have. Family definitely tops my list and I was so happy to be able to spend some time with them this weekend.
Here are a few pics from the festivities:
