Thanksgiving 2011

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday this year. The week prior to the holiday, Naquel's parent's came to visit. We did a lot of sight seeing and just had a fun time hanging out. Naquel's parents left on Monday, and my parents and uncle arrived on Thanksgiving Day. We had a lot of yummy food (Naquel is such a good cook and did such a wonderful job) and we all had a great time visiting and catching up. The kids seem to get a kick out of Nana Ross telling scary stories from her childhood in England. We took the family to downtown Portland to show them this beautiful city (Voodoo Donuts was a hit). We also went out to Canon Beach and Seaside for day of sightseeing and fun. The temperatures were in the high 40's to mid 50's so we weren't complaining about the rain. Now that all the family is gone, the home is quiet, but we do look forward to seeing them all again over Christmas- minus the 12 hr drive. Here are a few photos from the last few weeks- thanks to Anne and Tanya for taking the photos.

Nigbur Family- We recommend coming in July when the skies are blue and the weather is warm, but you guys are welcome any time you like- in fact we would like that a lot. So come on out and make a fun family vacation out of it.

Oh how I love where you live. Cannon beach is one of my favorite places. They have some great clam chowder. We definitely need to make a trip up to visit you guys. I know you will be busy at Christmas but hopefully we can get together for lunch or something. I'm sure the Nigburs would be up for something too. We sure miss you guys!
