Thanksgiving 2011

by on Nov.28, 2011, under Family

The Prado’s celebrated Thanksgiving with Gary’s family so Joyce and I flew from Hilton Head to Fort Lauderdale on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Except for head winds, it was a great flying day and we arrived by noon. We met Jennifer for lunch and picked Alexandra up from school. Mike came home form his office and we enjoyed grilled steaks in perfect Florida weather.

Wednesday was a relaxed day of shopping, preparation for tomorrows feast and more family time. We got to know the newest member of the family, Max, Alexandra’s new black kitten. Max is a piece of work, constantly at play.

We went out to the Weston Bone fish restaurant, which was packed, and had a very nice dinner.

Thursday, Thanksgiving day, the serious cooking got started. Alexandra showed off her skills with her Wi, beating everyone at bowling, tennis and hitting a few home runs. Thank goodness she has gotten tired of golf, since I don’t need to be defeated by a 7 year old. We watched football while the cooking continued and then enjoyed a great Thanksgiving feast. It was a perfect day, accept that evening our beloved 49ers took it on the chin from the Ravens.

Friday we visited the Everglades and Saturday we flew back to Hilton Head. Our flight was great, with a tail wind this time, so we got back in a little over two hours. We had lunch with our friends the Turrisi’s who had spent Thanksgiving on the Island. It was a great Thanksgiving week.
