Thanksgiving in Vermont

We had a really nice time over in Vermont for Thanksgiving. I'm a little turkeyed out -- we had it on Thursday, Friday, AND Saturday. I couldn't wait to have something other than turkey for dinner. Really, I like turkey but that was a bit much for me! lol

David's sister and brother-in-law were there with their kids -- Garrick (8), Nate (6), and Elizabeth (3). The kids were, well, LOUD. They're sweet and they're good kids, but man, every time I go there and see them for a few days I'm so reminded why I don't want kids of my own. I just can't deal with the constant noise and activity. It drives me batty. Yesterday morning they were up at 6:30am screaming at the tops of their lungs and tossing their toys around. Argh.

At any rate, we wandered around another cemetery while there and got to play with their new rocket (mix vinegar and baking soda together and set it off -- man does it fly!). Here are some pictures from our adventures. I'll try to remember to upload the videos later.

We used the kids as a distraction and had Dahlia wait. This is her running to David on a wait.

The rest of the kids had to get in on it. This is Elizabeth, Garrick and Nate.

I love the look Dahlia has in Garrick with Dahlia - like she's not quite sure this is a safe thing. LOL
