Thanksgiving update

~We spent the weekend with our friends that we had not seen, in too long. Our boys were instant friends, and seemed to have a great time playing. They had matching shoes, which my 2 year old absolutely loved, and wanted to sit next to his "friend with the same shoes."
On Thanksgiving day, my baby woke up feeling very hot, and was not his usual happy self. I stayed in the hotel room while he slept nearly the whole day, while everyone else went out to a movie and hot coco. I was a little bored, there aren't many times you can clean up a hotel room, so I chatted with the housekeeping lady in the hallway, and watched the Thanksgiving day parade.
We went to Cracker Barrel that night for dinner, and ate dinner amongst a few couples, who kept staring at our table of 10 comprised mostly of boys. My friend and I spent the rest of the evening catching up, and hanging out with the little ones, while the big boys went on a walk through the christmas light lit up park outside our hotel.

The next day we got up and headed out to the Aquarium, which I had no idea would be so popular the day after
Thanksgiving. It seemed as if everyone in that city had the same idea as us, as we filtered through many lines and many people the whole time. Nonetheless, it was a very fun time, and a very cool aquarium.
~It was a great trip, and one that ended too quickly. There is something refreshing about being around old friends, picking back up, where we left off, yet grown and changed all the same. They are a really sweet couple, that love each other deeply, and stand beside each other. Their children are beautiful and so sweet. They are some of those friends that you completely love the priviledge of knowing them.

Very Sweet! We were thrilled to be able to hang out with you guys for Thanksgiving. We need to try to see each other more often. You are some of our favorite friends. I am also glad that all the boys had such a great time together!

I am so glad you all had fun. That is a lot of boys. Nickoli would be so jealous of the Cracker Barrel thanksgiving. He loves that place.
