- Spending time together:
We also played a really fun game where we split into teams and did a blind taste test to see who has the best palate. We used items like relish, raw onion and pecorino cheese. See...I told you we are nerdy. It was hilarious though.
- Eating delicious food:
We weren't sure whether we'd be able to do Thanksgiving the way we wanted to this year, but we were fortunate enough to find everything we needed...even a kosher turkey! The smallest bird we could find was 20 pounds!! I was seriously concerned that it wouldn't fit in my easy bake oven. It did, but we had to buy three different roasting pans until we found one that fit in the oven! My dad saved the day by bringing one from Walmart. Dan had to adjust it a little bit by hammering the handles flat, but it worked!
We made the full spread, including three different pies; two types of potatoes; two cranberry sauces and lots more. We were too excited to eat to capture proper pictures, but here's one of the table:
- Visiting great sites:

Of course there is so much more to share, but this is already way too long. We had a great week and I was definitely sad to see it end. Hopefully they'll be back out to visit again soon though!
