we all went to the gym on thanksgiving morning, then got ready and hung around the house. (jack and i built some minecraft legos; the box said they're for ages 8+ and it was hard even for me.) then we got in the car and drove to seattle! it had been raining all week but just barely stopped that afternoon -- we even saw the sun peeking out, but it was WINDY and cold.

we had dinner at cutter's and it was delish. the restaurant was perfect -- just noisy enough that our kids weren't an embarrassment, and we lucked out with a table right next to the window overlooking the bay. our four-course thanksgiving meal wasn't too bad either. see -- restaurants do it just like home!
another couple from our ward ended up joining us; they're canadian and thought our whole thanksgiving thing was amusing. it was so fun to have them with us too -- felt more festive to be with friends. hudson pounded the turkey, jack wouldn't touch it. we had pumpkin pie for dessert and headed home for the seahawks game. a perfect thanksgiving with my little family.
