I love Thanksgiving. I always have. It used to be an excuse to stuff my face as much as humanly possible, but it has now evolved into a nice holiday to allow me to reflect on what I am truly grateful for. The stuffing my face is definitely still there (as conveyed this year in my ability to rip my pants. whoops), but it’s more than that now. It’s a time for family and friends.
So this year what am I most thankful for?
I am so grateful for my little family. I have such an amazing husband who does so much for me, and I have a beautiful little healthy boy. What more could I ask for?
So how did we spend our Thanksgiving this year? We drove up to DC and visited some of Ken’s friends who live there still.
^^^Kenny’s first Thanksgiving.^^^
^^^And here they are with Marcus who is Ken’s best friend growing up. Kenny’s middle name is Marcus.^^^
And since we were in DC, we hit up some of the museums. We went to the Natural History Museum and the American History Museum. I loved it! My favorite exhibit was the First Lady exhibit. They had all of the gowns displayed that the first ladies have worn. So cool.
^^^It was freezing in DC while we were up there.^^^
^^^The boys enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit the best.^^^
^^^And baby boy was definitely worn out by the time we finished. He fell asleep on the metro.^^^
Overall, fun trip! I loved seeing some of Ken’s old friends, and it was a lot of fun to see some of where Ken grew up.
