Thanksgiving Grandparent Visit #2

We were doubly blessed with with grandparents for Thanksgiving.  Garth's mom, Susan, got here Wednesday and stayed through early Saturday morning.  We enjoyed Wednesday evening with a fun meal at a local diner and topped it off with Starbucks.  Good stuff.  Thursday was Thanksgiving of course.  Dylan and Grandma Sue enjoyed the morning taking a walk around the neighborhood (in the rain) and visiting the local Walmart for a few extra special goodies.  This was my first time to do Thanksgiving at our house.  I didn't do a turkey.  I don't know how and with just us, I didn't want to have to deal with all the left overs.  I did pull off a pretty good meal though.  I have a long way to go to live up to my Grandmother Side's feast.  It was still tasty and enjoyable.  We spent the rest of the day doing what you do on Thanksgiving.  Sports, Sports, Sports.  Friday Garth, the boys and Grandma Sue went to the beach to see the ocean.  I was told they had a fun time.  I, on the other hand, went shopping.  I got plenty accomplished and so enjoyed my kid-free shopping day.  Thank you Garth and Susan.  What a treat for me.  Saturday came and Grandma Sue was gone.  It was great having her here in our home and watching her have a special time with the boys.  Come again soon, Susan!!!
