For the holiday, Ron and I drove to San Diego where all of his descendants were meeting. It's 400 miles from Mesa and even in the car, it took 8 hours. But at least we didn't have to worry about snow or ice.
We stayed with Kelli, Sean, and Harper, the cutest baby in the world. In case you've been paying really close attention, yes, they lived in Denver last summer, but moved to San Diego recently.
Kim, Tom, Adam, and Shannon came from Denver, but had their own place to stay for the week. Here they are on our trip to La Jolla.
Were we saw all the seals and sea lions at Casa Beach.
We visited the San Diego Zoo, where we saw flamingos.
These cute meerkats.
And everybody's favorite, the panda.
Adam and Shannon impersonated seals peeking out of the ice.
Of course the highlight of the week was Thanksgiving (which also happened to be Shannon's birthday this year.) Kelli did a wonderful job putting the meal together even with little Harper needing a big piece of her attention.
I realize Ron and Jim were cut out of the previous picture, so here's one of them. Jim came in from Salt Lake City for the holiday.
It's good to stop and take time to appreciate all we have to be thankful for. It's not just about turkey and football, after all.
In case you're wondering why there aren't more pictures of the cutest baby, never fear. The next post will be all Harper!
