For the last 7 years, we have been traveling to Durham, North Carolina for Thanksgiving with our younger daughter. She moved here for her PhD at Duke and liked the area and stayed.
There’s a new special reason to visit this year – a granddaughter born in May. We love spending time with her and her big sister age 2. When here, we stay at Falls Lake State Park about 20 minutes away from their house. Dinner is always a treat as she and her husband are excellent cooks. With two babies, pulling Thanksgiving dinner off is quite a challenge, but it was delicious as always.
Our son-in-law’s birthday was on Wednesday, and our mini goldendoodle Bogey turned 13 on Thanksgiving day.
Lots of celebrating going on. And, there was some Black Friday shopping accomplished, as well. Black Friday was sunny and warm with temperatures in the 70’s so we took the opportunity to visit Ponysaurus, a local brewery.
