Thanksgiving Break

Last week the kids had the week off for Thanksgiving and Chris had Thursday and Friday off. I can't tell you how much we all needed a break from our usual routine! The past few months have been busy and so it was nice for us all to slow down a bit for a few days We spent Thanksgiving day with some friends Jenny and Ian and their two children Malcolm and Myla. The kids LOVE going to their house and we love spending time with them. We all stuffed ourselves on too much turkey, stuffing, potatoes, beans, bread and pies for desert. Here a a few photos from the day...

The day after Thanksgiving we went for a bike ride. It was the first time we have all been for a ride together. I must have looked pretty funny cruising around 8 months pregnant on my bike! It really wasn't too bad, I just wish that I had a bigger, softer seat! In the afternoon we went swimming. We hadn't been for a swim since September when our neighborhood pool closed and so it was fun to see everyone back in the water again. Elliott was very cautious, but it didn't take him long to find his swimming legs again.

On Saturday we took the kids to the science center in the morning. Here are a few pictures from out trip...
