Thanksgiving Photo's and Recap

We really did have a good time in New York last week, even with the 7 hour trip home. We packed a ton of stuff into five days and they boys didn't want to leave on Saturday morning. I didn't get any pictures but the boys went to the samurai exhibit at the MET on Tuesday and then we walked the Brooklyn Bridge before Nicole and I saw Finian's Rainbow with Adam and Emmy while the boys and grandparents went to the Incredible Mr. Fox. On Wednesday we saw Shrek the Musical, which the boys loved. Thursday morning we went up to the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx where we saw the holiday train display. The US Botanic Garden has a holiday train display with DC buildings that we have visited a couple times over the years but this one was all New York buildings.

On Friday we took the boys to the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier Museum on the Hudson. We went there back when the boys were about 3 but they had forgotten completely that they had been there before. We also decorated Adam's first ever Christmas Tree which was fun. It was also nice to hang out with Linda, Gil, Adam, Elaine and Emmy. Not to mention Emmy's dog Cinnamon, with whom Sam really bonded. Well, it was either the dog or Emmy herself that kept Sam begging to take the dog out for walks. I think he had a crush on the girl, not the dog.

Two weeks till Hanukkah and four weeks till Christmas. It's a busy time of year.

Don't forget to click on the links above to see the many pictures, many of which were taken by Sam and Dylan. I've started giving them the small cameras while I focus on taking movies.
