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.
