A (Belated) Thanksgiving Recap

Our Thanksgiving holiday started out a little more rushed than originally planned!  First thing Tuesday morning my Dad emailed me to make us aware of the impending weather on Wednesday (when we were originally going to travel).  We decided to leave Tuesday afternoon instead.  We were afraid that the boats were not going to go at all on Wednesday.
We quickly packed, picked the boys up from school early and hit the road!

 It rained all day Wednesday, but let up enough for us to escape the house and go to Frozen Turkey Bowling and the Rose & Crown.  A favorite activity for all!  The kids get to bowl a frozen turkey, and the parents get to have a couple cocktails :)
 My nephew busied himself setting up the pins for the other bowlers.
 Thursday morning we went into town to watch the Turkey Plunge.  Brrrr.  It was COLD!
C was able to pet the "town" turkey.  It was a bit challenging to get a picture of him, because they were all running around :)
 Those brave (crazy) enough to plunge!  J wants to participate next year.  Hopefully it will be a bit warmer!
 John and I went for a nice long walk on the beach and found these four sand dollars.
On Friday we walked around town, enjoyed shopping some sales and went to the Festival of Wreaths

 This one made me think of Andi :)
 I'm sure it took FOREVER to collect all the sand dollars used to make this.
 I would have loved to bid on this wreath.  I really want a Lightship Basket.  Someday.

And on Saturday we went to the Nantucket/Martha's Vineyard football game.  While it wasn't the SEC, it is on the list of the country's biggest rivalries!  Nantucket lost :(  

We had a great time, left Sunday evening and hit NO traffic on the way home!  Bonus!
