I had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with my family.
I headed up north Wednesday afternoon. I’ve left then for years, but I was surprised at how light the traffic was. Usually, it’s flowing but crowded. It was actually pretty typical for a non-holiday time, and I hit no real traffic around towns like I was expecting.
I spent four full days up there with them. Thursday, my brother and sister-in-law hosted Thanksgiving like they usually do. It was them, their two kids, me, my parents, my sister-in-law’s parents, and a family friend. We’ve been doing this since they moved back to California, so we have it down. It wasn’t nothing super fancy, but it was a great time of all being together.
I spent Thursday night with them, and had a great time playing with my niece and nephew on Friday.
The rest of the time, I spent at Mom and Dad’s. Naturally, my brother and his family were other there so I still got to see them. We played games and just hung out. It was very nice and relaxing.
I drove home yesterday, avoiding the worst of the traffic on Sunday by doing so. In fact, there wasn’t really any bad traffic on Monday, so I sailed right through both ways.
