Thanksgiving at the Livengoods

We celebrated Thanksgiving with the Livengoods at their house in San Jose. We arrived on Sunday the 22nd and left on Friday the 27th.

New puppy Bailey had grown and matured a lot since we had seen her last, and she is a lot of fun to be around. It was great catching up with the family, including the young adults, and doing a couple of serious hikes at Quicksilver and Coyote Creek. We also did a couple of neighborhood walks.

On Thanksgiving Rick smoked a delicious turkey. The rest of the menu, although a little less elaborate than in years past, was also fantastic. During dinner we zoomed for a while with the Blomquists, who were celebrating at home in Minnesota. They are recovering from COVID-19, and we are all especially grateful, during this season of gratitude, that they are doing well.
