Feeding the ducks

We were looking for something fun to do before work started back up, Stephen had the fun idea of trying to find some ducks to feed. We figured there wouldn't be very many out there but our first stop supplied lots of ducks, seagulls and pigeons!

 Sam loved feeding the birds then chasing after them

 Stephen found a few brave pigeons that would let him hand feed them
 Sam and Dad flying after the birds and making them scatter
 Sam was very sleepy by the time we left, I just had to get a picture with the water behind them
 When the pigeons would fly they would all take off together then swoop around in a circle and land around us here is the best picture I got of them flying.


We hosted Thanksgiving this year at our place, sadly I had my camera on the wrong setting so most of my pictures turned out fuzzy so here are the few that turned out well.
Sam and his cousin Hannah sat at his Cars table
 We had to split the group in two with some in the living room eating and some in the dinning room.
 My Grandparents joined us for the yummy meal!

 I didn't get a picture of the turkey before we cut into it, this year our turkey was named Peggy because Stephen loves the new insurance commercials with the guy named Peggy. The turkey turned out great!
 My homemade pumpkin pie, I made the crust for the first time this year, I wasn't sure how to make it look fancy but it tasted very yummy anyways.
 Sam loved the dessert!
 We ended the night playing cards

We had an amazing Thanksgiving, and we have so much to be grateful for! This was our first Thanksgiving in Oregon after getting married and the first holiday we have had with Stephen after moving to Oregon. I hope everyone else had a great Thanksgiving as well!
