A Kentucky Thanksgiving
We had the pleasure of traveling to see my niece and her husband at their new home in Kentucky for Thanksgiving. My kids joined us as well as my nephew, brother-in-law, his sister and aunt. It was a fun time for 11 adults, 3 dogs and a very nervous cat . Well maybe the cat didn't have that much fun but the dogs loved running around the yard ....and the house.
On Wednesday we visited some Berea, KY craft shops. One shop makes dulcimers and the shop owner demonstrated how they are strummed. Then we toured the Kentucky Bourbon distillery that makes Woodford Preserve. It is nestled among horse farms. Thursday we ate a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner. We all brought or made something for dinner but a special thanks to Linda and Audrey for putting it all together - from Turkey to those delicious pies. Friday we drove to Louisville to watch the Rutgers football team defeat Louisville on Friday. Go RU.
The best part of all was spending time with my family. Every day is a Blessing and on these three days I felt especially blessed.
Thanks Alycia and Kevin for being such marvelous hosts.
