Thanksgiving 2008

We had a lunchtime feast. Bryan's grandparents have worked and lived on Ted Turner's plantation for EVER. Well, Ted's son, Beau (Beauregard), has built an awesome covered area, with a huge playground, a life size doll house filled with toys, and, uh, a huge hunting practice area or something. Anyway - that's where we had our Thanksgiving feast, with all of Bryan's family. Minus Bryan's sister and kids who went to California and his brother, who didn't get up in time to ride with us. Landon had a wonderful time playing on everything and with all the toys. Who wouldn't, right?

It was perfect weather. In the low 60s, with a nice breeze. There was a ton of food. I spent most the time visiting with Bryan's aunts. Its funny how similar his family is to mine.
After lunch, we went by Grandman and Granddad Purvis' new house. Bry's uncles bought a dump and turned it completely around. It looks really great. His grandfather quit working out at the plantation, so they moved into town. I think they're both sad to be stuck in the house all day, but Shorty (that's bry's granddad) did tell Bry that he might just sleep all day now.

On Friday, Bry and I got up early and did some shopping. Found some good deals, waited in some long lines, had some delicious Krispy Kremes and wonderful coffee. That night Bry's Granddad's uncle had a fish fry out in the middle of nowhere. Seriously, nothing but woods around us. The food, once again, was great.

After that, I was exhausted. Bryan went out with friends, Landon and I went to bed. Unfortunately, I got sick and had to visit the porcelain god. Landon comes in, "Whatcha doin' mommy?" - Uh, nothing, could you hold my hair? LOL. Finally got everything out and got Landon back to bed, not a fun night.

The rest of the weekend was fun - I'll do the Gator game in a separate post. Landon had a great time with Grandma and Grandpa. We started out late on Sunday and didn't get home until midnight last night. It was a long, long drive. The drive seems easier at night, probably because I don't have a two year old jumping on me, going crazy in a 3x4 back of a SUV.
