      After a nice relaxing evening and a good nights sleep. After our morning coffees, I went into Tavistock for a nice walkabout the park and around town for a while.
    This nice trail behind off the parl was peaceful and scenic.
That's as far as I got, water hazard.
       from there I walked about town for a but more in was a nice mild morning and the walk is very refreshing. Some people may recognize some of the parts of downtown Tavi.

        Then after we had a light lunch we packed up our goodies about noon,  and on the road to Daughter number 1 in Aurora at noon, about 2 hours away, for our second Thanksgiving Feast and family time.
this is their beautiful home
       As we arrived, the boys were getting together with their hockey sticks, practicing in the driveway.
     Then I got out the pumpkins we brought and a few of them got in to carving them, something I have done for the every year at thanksgiving.
of course the scooter was there too
       Really getting into it and having fun, on another perfect fall day.

     More playing and socializing we all had a wonderful time.
    Then soon time to lay down and relax with gramma.
    We all had a wonderful Thanks giving day visit and feast, nice that we could all get together before we head on out for your winter travels. In 2 days we have seen almost all of our families, especially the kids and grands. We stayed over the night and will be heading back to Tavistock Tuesday morning.
      Thanks for stopping in and hope all our Canadian friends enjoy a nice Thanksgiving as well.

    The little ones had fun with the pumpkin carving.
    Lots of great food to fill our tummies!

    1. Thanks Patsy,
      It sure was a fun time and they do love the pumpkin carving.

  2. Looks like you have had a couple of great days with family celebrating Thanksgiving. We certainly have had great weather this year for the whole weekend. With winter travel just around the corner, it has been a great way to end the season. Safe travels and here's to meeting up down the road.

    1. Thanks Bill we sure did have amazing weather.
      Soo we be on the way, and safe travels to you guys as well.

  3. What a beautiful family!! How fun to watch them carve pumpkins!! And the food looks amazing!!

    1. Thanks Nancy it was a very fun day,with the Grands and tasty food.

  4. Great pictures! Those grandkids really enjoyed the carving, they are quite the artists! Food looks amazing. I remember when we saw you 2 winters ago the little one had just been born, what a cutie she is! They grow up too quickly. So nice that you got to see as many family members as you did!

    1. Thanks guys it was a fun day and excellent food again !
      They do grow up so fast. Is Nice that everyone is relatively close for a visit.

  5. It's nice to see a family gathering, but two in a row is even better! Happy days!

  6. First of all Happy Belated Thanksgiving. We had my sister visiting and I am just getting back on the computer and catching up with what everyone is up to. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend and two great celebrations. You two have some cute grandchildren and they are some pretty good pumpkin carvers. What a wonderful way to celebrate a holiday with both families.
    Looking at your counter we are jealous of your departure date...oh well, as they say the best laid plans... but I am guessing we will not be far behind. Looking on the bright side we can read what way everyone goes for ideas on what way to head west. Enjoy your last week there.

    1. Thank you so much , we had an awesome weekend with family and way too much food. We are so looking forward to getting on the road again ! Hope to catch up y'all somewhere in the southwest again.

  7. You are blessed with such a beautiful and active family! Happy Thanksgiving.

  8. Sounds like a wonderful day with family. I bet those pumpkins are something the kids look forward to.

    1. Iras a lot if fun and nice to see everyone again. The kids were asking if I was going to bring them they did enjoy.

  9. Another feast for sure. Good to spend lots of family time before you head south. I thought it must be getting close to time.

    1. Yes it was a feast another week and we make our way south.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
