We're Off...

We are leaving this morning for a Fresno Thanksgiving! We'll be driving "over the desert and through the Grapevine" to my home town. Today we will drop off LOTS of food and goodies at Connie's, then check in to our hotel and give Federico the nickel tour of where I grew up.

Later this evening we'll meet up with a group of my sorority sisters (Connie, Joy, Kim and Suzy) at a favorite Italian restaurant so Federico can meet his "American Aunts" or the "Auntie Ya Yas" as we have been named by everyone's children. There is never a dull second when we all get together!

Thursday morning, at the crack of dawn, Federico and Sarah are running in the 5K "Turkey Trot" Run. Then back to our hotel for breakfast and then the whole Thanksgiving Day with the clan at Connie's.

Friday morning, we are all going to Yosemite for the day! We will picnic with turkey and ham sandwiches, and lots of goodies. The weather promises to be beautiful, sunny and crisp! Friday night, back to Connie's for another huge meal.

We'll be back home Saturday afternoon to start decorating for Christmas!

We wish everyone a happy, safe, and delicious Thanksgiving!

Happy Turkey Day to you and your family!! It's this time of year that we all wish we could choose our family members the way you have.


Have a beautiful Thanksgiving.
I love that you are taking Frederico to Yosemite!


woops--I misspelled Federico!

Sounds lovely and a great way to show Frederico an American holiday. Yosemite will be beautiful also. Have a lovely Thanksgiving.
