Our Thanksgiving

It is becoming our tradition, here in the Bahamas, to spend Thanksgiving in an untraditional way.    Since Thanksgiving is not a holiday here, you have to really work hard to celebrate it in the traditional sense. So far we have not managed a traditional Thanksgiving. As fun as the past 3 Thanksgivings have been, we may never do the traditional while we are here.
This year our friends, Kelly, Billy and AnnaKate were here for a short visit. 
They arrived on a cruise for just the day, but we tried to pack as much into the day as we could.  We picked them up downtown, brought them back to our house.  Picked up the boys early from school and went out to lunch.
Our favorite restaurant was offering a Thanksgiving menu as well as their regular menu.  Kelly was the only one who ate off the Thanksgiving menu and hers was amazing.

Kelly and I met in 5th grade.  We still act like it too!

After lunch we headed back to the house.  The kids were eager to get out and play, so we let them take a few spins and kicks.DSCN2517DSCN2518DSCN2519DSCN2520DSCN2521DSCN2522
We had to wait out a couple of showers and then we headed to the beach.  It was a super windy day!
The rain left us not one but two different rainbows that day.DSCN2525DSCN2527
It makes it easy to count your blessings when we are with life long friends on Thanksgiving…no matter where we are.
