And time flew

I've said it before and I'll say it again: anyone who thinks long weekends are "relaxing" clearly doesn't have a busy schedule and young children...

It was Canadian Thanksgiving this past weekend, and although we don't really celebrate it chez Dear, we managed to squeeze in a whole lotta activity into a 3-day period. At least, I think we did! I'm sitting here trying to organize my recollections of the weekend into some sort of time line, and there appear to be great big gaps of time I can't really recall. Hmmm...

You know what? I'm not going to bore you with the details. I'm just going to concentrate on the highlights, heh.

I'd say a definite highlight of the weekend was going to the local park with The Enabler clan yesterday. We had a picnic, flew some kites, and just enjoyed the day.

In short, we surrounded ourselves with good people we're lucky to have in our lives. If that's not what Thanksgiving is about, then I don't know what is :)

Happy Knitting Everyone!

It was really lovely to spend the time with you guys at the park - thanks for the picnic idea. Thankful for that, and thankful for you too, for so many many reasons.
(and I really do love that photograph...)

Love the photos, it looks like you guys had a great time. And you're right, that is what Thanksgiving is all about. :)
Love Phils kite btw, it's brilliant!

Happy Thanksgiving! Sounds like a fun weekend! Our Thanksgiving usually involves kite flying and running after chickens on the family farm!

That red ball is not from heck, it's from hell. It's a Cacodeamon from the computer game DOOM.
