My 8 yo GD came over Wednesday and we cooked. She made the pumpkin pies. I think they were the best pumpkin pies that she has every had ;-). I was cutting up celery and onion and she asked if she could cut them up. She said that her mom let her use a sharp knife. I turned it over to her and kept an eye on her. She did a great job. We made the green beans and a sweet potato casserole to be baked on Thursday.
DH and I get the turkey ready to go into the oven before I left for the Turkey Trot. DS and I got there about 10 minutes early and it got started about 10 minutes late. It was cold – about 13 degrees, brrrr. Once we got moving we warmed up quickly. There were a lot of people in it, 729. That is the largest 5k that I have done. Had a good time and finished in 54 minutes. Finished 2 nd in my age category – there were 4 of us in our 70’s.
Had a good dinner and family time. Even got to see some of the parade.
Today DS and I hiked Dinosaur Hill. Even found a geocache there. We also saw a bald eagle sitting on the top of a tree by the river. Forgot my camera. Had a good time
