Stardate 60898.81 - Thanksgiving

With the rain and wind we decided to move Thanksgiving to NJ on Thursday, rather than have everyone try to drive into the city. Cheryl's parents hosted the event, and we had good food and a good time. We left early in the morning to beat the traffic and got out there by 1000 on Thursday, and we left about 1000 this morning to come back. Loren is still fighting this cold, so her face still looks bad. But the pictures were just too cute not to post (even with the bad-looking chapped skin!).

We decided to go to the Central Park Zoo this morning once we got back into the city, followed by a quick trip to a playground for Loren to run around. She seemed to really, really like the zoo - especially the children's zoo with the petable animals. The goat she is petting is a nubian, the type we had on our "farm" growing up.

And she liked looking at the monkeys, even if they were far away from where we were standing.

I know I've commented on this before, but Loren sure does seem to be a happy baby. She always seems to be smiling.

If you were planning on hosting Thanksgiving dinner, did you have to pack up the Rav with a turkey and all the trimmings you had already purchased for the event?

The Turkey was already in NJ, as Cheryl's parents were providing that (actually, I think it may have originally come from Marie but I'm not sure). We did have to pack up 4 bags of groceries to take with us, in addition to an overnight bag and all the miscellaneous Loren gear required.

But the meal was pretty much as it would have been had we hosted in NYC.
