Thanksgiving in Austin, TX


Thanksgiving in Austin, TX

This post includes some photos not posted to Facebook, that are representative of our visit with Arrion, Ben, Alex and Kaylee over the Thanksgiving Weekend.


The day before Thanksgiving we took an outing to Cabella's in Buda, SE of Austin. Alex needs new camping gear for when he joins regular Boy Scouts in the coming year. He and Ben were "checking out" possibilities. The rest of us enjoyed the many exhibits.

Alex likes to play games with the whole family. This was just the first of several sessions during the weekend:


Good meals, all the time, of course, thanks to Arrion! I liked this photo...


Nancy and I just enjoy being there... can you tell? ;-)


Friday was casual day, each person doing their "own thing" - Alex on the computer and phone with his friend, George, setting up their next game...


Kaylee playing a game on her iPad that Grandma had on hers, earlier... multitasking with breakfast.


Ben was keeping garage in good shape. On Saturday, he puts out Christmas decorations! ;-)


And, Arrion, in blue van, headed for grocery store... a very common occurrence... will pick up sandwiches for lunch, too, she said... Go, Arrion!! ;-)


It was a very good weekend!! ;-)
