Here are some highlights from our long Thanksgiving weekend.
Wednesday – Sean, Melissa & the kids arrive in Duluth and head to the hotel water park. Sebastian eagerly accepts an invitation to join them for an evening of swimming, games and pizza.
Thursday – Turkey Day! No pictures of the ginormous turkey, but a couple of table shots before the adults sat down for dinner.
Dinner was followed by a family football game, dessert and the Wii game Deal or No Deal.
Friday – Skating and Bentleyville
We rented ice time at the DECC and had the whole Arena to ourselves for a family skate. We made the kids (and Tom) wear helmets, so that we could make it through the weekend without an emergency room visit. The kids (and adults) had fun skating and hitting the puck around. We even set up the goal and made some shots.
After skating, we headed back to the house for hors d’oeurves and a birthday celebration for Tom.
And since we didn’t have enough fun yet, we drove down to Bayfront Park to see the Bentleyville Tour of Lights. It was opening night and we heard later that up to 10,000 people attended that night. The lines were a bit too long for Santa, but we all enjoyed seeing the reindeer, Frosty and Mrs. Frosty, eating cookies and marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate and coffee. Of course, I can’t forget all of the spectacular lights.
After Bentleyville, we went back home to thaw out. Everyone was tired from a busy day, especially Ella and Daphne…
Saturday – The Cities Sullivans head home. Thanks for the great weekend!
