My Most Relaxing Turkey Day Ever!

I have been away for a week. We took a much needed vacation to the beach for Thanksgiving. So, my Thanksgiving day consisted of, sleeping in late (is 9AM late? It is to me). We showered, dressed, and got served breakfast by somebody else (woohoo!). We hung out on the beach until we were hungry in the afternoon, came in and made our Thanksgiving burgers in our room. We popped out some frozen pies from the freezer, that turned out to be really good, much to my surprise. Then we ended the evening by heading out to the pool until we were to tired to swim and headed up stairs for a movie. We watched Blended with Adam Sandler, I give it a thumbs up, it was entertaining and made me laugh a few times. Have a beautiful Day! It is raining here, that is okay though, it is still a beautiful day.

I worried that the kids would feel they were missing out, but they were thrilled.

I think a lot of other people felt the same way, the area was very busy much to my surprise.

What a wonderful way to spend your Thanksgiving, I am considering if not celebrate Christmas in a small cozy restaurant... I am very tempted.

@gudheart I will admit a lot of them a junk, they are a hit and miss with us. We either like them or hate them. He did one about twins and I will never get those 2 hours back, I am still mad about it

Oh now that does sound like a nice way to spend Thanksgiving. I had to cook Thanksgiving dinner and then take it to my parents home. By the time the day was over I was exhausted.

@mom210 Normally my mama cooks Thanksgiving and we bring a few sides or a dessert. She loves Thanksgiving, it is her favorite holiday. She was really feeling poorly after her hospital stay and asked for help. Makes me really worry about her health.

I wish we could go to the beach too. I love it there. But we can only do that during summertime.

Any day you can sleep late and get someone else to serve you breakfast is a good day.

yes, we have had some stressful times over the last couple years, health issues with Tiny the little guy in the picture plus job loss and medical bills. Sometimes it is nice to put it all on the back burner.

@mom210 they changed their minds and had turkey in the end - last year they did have duck - both are very good options

@mom210 At least you didn't do any cooking for it and were served instead of serving for a change.
