I chose not to cook for Thanksgiving 2013, instead we ordered traditional and vegan food from Blaneks. Our older son Ryan and his fiance Margaret flew into Abilene from their Portland, OR home, where they picked up her three children for a four day TX car trip, our place was the second of several visits with family. Eben, Nikki, 3 year old Benjamin – and as of 1/16/14 – granddaughter Lily (6#) live in Waco but they too headed out for other family dinners after visiting with us. Multiple family holiday visits involving long car trips (in our case Montana to California) are part of our family’s history.
Playing with the kids in EHHPG’s gardens was a nice way to wrap up the day’s visit. Thanks to Nikki, we have wonderful photos to help us remember the day.
