That's a wrap!

The long weekend was great...
Thanksgiving brought frigid temps in the NW,
but that didn't stop my crazy family from hosting
our own private Turkey Trot!

Young, old and somewhere in between met at our designated park at 9:30am for the annual Turkey Trot.  We usually run a formal race complete with tee shirts and entrance fees, but opted for a more laid back race this year.

My brother-in-law, Stuart was in charge of the course...

The course was set up for runners and walkers...




my sweet mom and equally sweet sis-in-law, Nancy
my brother Tim, and niece Becca
my sister, Sis... bringing it in!
The best part of the race...
homemade pumpkin cinnamon rolls and hot coffee waiting at the finish line!
Chelsea, my amazing daughter was in charge of the cinnamon rolls.  You can get the recipe on her blog, by clicking here...
My hubby was sidelined by a flu bug, but rallied enough to brew the coffee (a key element for the participants at the finish line!)

Seemingly simple things turn out to be favorite memories...
Oh, and Thanksgiving dinner was great too!
