A Late Thanksgiving Trip Report

Lots of working=not much blogging recently, so we have quite a few stories and photos to share!

Back in November, we had a lovely trip to Rochester for Thanksgiving.

Our new iPad made the long drive much, much easier for Brynna--she loves toggling back and forth amongst games, movies, and music.

And once we arrived, the long drive was totally worth it, as we had a lovely relaxing few days. There was much lolling about, catching up with Art and Denny and Kate and Christopher. The renovation to Alex's folks' place (all new kitchen, new powder room, redone main bath) look amazing! I read a lot of books:

And we, of course, had a lot of delicious food. Not just Thanksgiving dinner itself, which was groan-inducing, but also these special Red Velvet cupcakes:

Brynna got to do some of her (and her father's) favorite Rochester things, including a visit to the Museum of Play and the Rochester Museum and Science Center.

Alex and Kate and I did some awesome, muddy trail running together. Somehow, Alex and I managed to get out running nearly every day we were there, which is more dense training than we've managed in months!

Kate and I dared to take Brynna to the Nutcracker. A late (8:00 pm) performance where good behavior is essential - it was touch-and-go there for a little bit, but generally she enjoyed herself, and behaved well. Here we are in front of the stage afterward (yeah, my iPhone is too old to have a flash):

And then, sadly, we eventually had to trek back to New Hampshire. I looked in the backseat and saw the beginning of a very happy trend: Brynna's nose in a book.
But she still loves her iPad.
