Our Thanksgiving Family Vacation! 2012
Brother & sister reading books in the car! this was the longest road trip they have ever taken! 6 hours in the car is a LONG time!
Along the way we stopped in Cabazon, CA to see the big dinosaurs on the side of the road!
We arrived in San Pedro, CA and settled in to our cottage where we spent the next 3 nights! It was so lovely! Plenty of room for all of us! The kids played kick ball in the front yard for awhile, they needed it after the long drive!
"Girl Time Bonding" with my mom! We traded socks, now she has one of mine and I have one of hers. Our "mismatched" pair of socks will always remind us of this vacation!
Thanksgiving Day, we walked to a park where some very fat squirrels would come right up to us for some bread crumbs!
There was a beautiful pond with lots of ducks to watch and feed! And some very noisy geese as well!
Taking a walk around the neighborhood with my uncle. My youngest son really bonded with his great-uncle, it was so sweet!
Waiting for the Thanksgiving Feast!
Day after Thanksgiving; Cabrillo Marine Aquarium. At the "touch tank", petting some starfish and sea anemones!
We had some car trouble on the way home! But it's just another memory... an "adventure"! All worked out okay! Being stuck in the desert was no fun but it just made us all the more grateful for our wonderful, safe, happy family vacation!
