Thanksgiving 2007 Recap
Written on November 26, 2007 by Kevin.
This year we made a trip up to Flagstaff, AZ to celebrate the holiday. In past years, we headed east to the kid's great aunt's house for a parade and lunch. This year though we headed up north to enjoy the cold weather and more of a winter feeling than down in Phoenix where it is still hot during the day.
This was a new house for Rylan and luckily we were forewarned about all of the stairs. Rylan enjoyed free reign of the house with a watchful eye. His great aunt surprised us by having a kids table with all of the necessities including crayons and a coloring book. We packed him plenty of toys as well to help him stay occupied.
We started Thursday with a breakfast which included homemade sticky buns. A prelunch was served which included split pea soup and butter nut squash soup. Rylan ate these up. He also enjoyed the pizza that had goat and gorgonzola cheese, walnuts and honey on it. It was certainly a pizza that Rylan had never had before but he loved it. He has exquisite taste buds it seems.
We broke up the day by heading out for a walk with Grandma and Grandpa. Rylan liked picking out pine cones for us to take home. He really liked running around on a nearby golf course.
The main turkey meal was amazing. The aunts and the kid's grandmother worked hard making a meal fit for a king. Everyone gobbled it up except for Rylan who wasn't too interested in it. He wasn't even interested in the desserts which included our contribution of an army of chocolate turkeys. They were a hit however with everyone else.
