Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone and we are full speed ahead to Christmas.
Thanksgiving was spent in Grand Forks with Blane and Melanie.
First off we celebrated a late Blane’s birthday-
Happy 33rd to Blaney!
The next day was Thanksgiving and Cody and Maral came with Buzz the dog.
Why I didn’t get a group photo with some delicious vegetarian dinner I have no idea. But i didn’t. It was so good. Melanie got some vegetarian loaf that was super delish. She also whipped up some potatoes and bread, and I brought stuffed acorn squash and pie. All in all it was the best.
The following day was sunny and warm. Yep, until this week the weather has been pretty warm.
We walked the dog Buzz and took some selfies and pics of the Red River.
and the boys, of course
Cody thought it was cold but we thought it was warm!
The sunsets are so lovely there.
I got back Friday night and on Sunday I went to the Festival of Trees-
Bad selfie but it’s me, Laura, and Mary back there.
The people who decorate these trees are so creative it’s rediculous
We also had some entertainment by Just for Kix. Sooo cute.
The next weekend it was off to San Antonio to run the Rock n Roll.
We also visted the Alamo that day--
It’s pretty neat, surrounded by the city.
We took a night time walk on the Riverwalk, which is really pretty.
On Sunday Cathy and I ran the half relay and Randy ran the half.
It started out rather hot and humid.
But with about a mile to go it started raining-hard.
A wet finish selfie. I look worried but really I’m pretty happy.
We were all VIPers and that meant free drinks for all!
We didn’t drink ALL that, but we did end up with some extra….
I repped Insight Brewing with this…whatever it is.
And after it was said and done we ate at the Republic of Texas
Night time on the river walk.
The next day was full of sight seeing--
O Henry’s House
A walk and cruise on the riverwalk
and then out to dinner in the Pearl area-
We ate here. The name is about the cured meats…
But I ate vegetarian-
When we got done there were carolers waiting to serenade us
I tried and tried to embed the video but I can’t fight blogger. So annoying.
Our view was not bad from our hotel either-
San Antonio Skyline
We left early the following day and stopped over in Atlanta
It was 80 degrees in San Antonio on Monday……
And it’s 19 degrees today.
But I have to say, it was pretty fun!
Breaking every rule while being culturally insensitive.
