9 Days of Thanksgiving

We had a great visit from Nathan, Valerie and Elina the week of Thanksgiving.  (Meryl stayed home to study). We went to Boston, the coast, lots of bike rides and hikes, did some shopping, ate yummy traditional American holiday food (with a few French desserts), played games and guitar.  
We rode the subway into downtown Boston and walked a few miles on the Freedom Trail to see historic buildings.


The churches and town halls are dwarfed by modern skyscrapers

Walking to the Old North Church in Boston

We toured the U.S.S. Constitution in the Boston Harbor



For Christmas Trevor wanted a guitar, so Nathan and Jonathan took him guitar shopping (he got a metal string acoustic Fender) and had fun jamming with his dad and uncle.

Playing board games (Valerie is conquering Europe)
 





Feasting with Family.  They loved the stuffing!





We went to a Visitor Center and walked along Paul Revere's ride in Minute Man National Park at Lexington and Concord





One week after Nathan's family went home, we celebrated Jason's 19th Birthday with a Whoopie-Pie cake


The cleaning job didn't work out, so now he's working at a toy store in the mall
