Thanksgiving 2017

Thanksgiving morning went very similarly to last year, although it was much cooler weather. The ‘Woods and I headed to City Park early to run the 5-mile NOAC Turkey Trot. I even had a special shirt to wear that I made earlier in the week. Cute, right?

Kenny and Grandma brought the boys to play at the playground near Morning Call, so they saw us all run by. Riley really wanted to finish the race with us; perhaps he’ll actually run in it next year.

Nick and James really wanted beignets after the race, so we all headed to Cafe du Monde in the Quarter. The line was really long when we got there but it moved quickly and we didn’t have to wait too long. Beignets and cafe au lait tasted really good after running 5 miles.

Kenny’s family had Thanksgiving at our house, but it was our year to be with my family. We arrived at Nola and Nopsi’s house around 1:30pm and had a really nice afternoon. Cub, Car, and Asher unfortunately weren’t able to make it in town like they had planned, but QP and James were in from France, and AD#1 and Joan were in attendance as well. Everything looked so pretty and the food was so tasty.

I hope everyone’s Thanksgivings were as nice as ours was. We spent the next few days at the farm with Kenny’s family before they had to go back to Cali. That recap coming up next; have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Fun with Friends in City Park

We spent the Tuesday before Thanksgiving with school friends at City Park. We let the kids play on the playground first, then we got beignets at Morning Call, then we walked over to the Sculpture Garden, then we went to a new playground by the soccer fields. It was quite a morning.

Ten Things

1. Nola took Luke to visit the Brownies at the beginning of this month. So cute!

3. Kenny and I got tickets to the Saints game against the Bucs on November 5 from our friend Scott. We met up with the crew at VooDoo II beforehand and then walked to the Dome. It was a great game! Afterwards, we went to have a drink at the Nopsi Hotel to wait out traffic before heading to Nola and Nopsi’s for dinner. Such a great day.

4. All Catholic schools were off on November 6 for teacher professional development, so some of us decided to let the kids run off some energy at Sector 6 that morning.

6. I had a fun birthday: Rory and I released a butterfly that morning, my boys gave me a nice card and drawings, Nola opened a wine we discovered in Paris in 2012, Kenny gave me replacement sunglasses (I lost my favorite pair back in July at Velvet Cactus), and Nola made me an awesome birthday dessert (dark chocolate salted caramel Oreo pie).
