My Thanksgiving break started one day early this week when I decided to take today off moments before leaving for work. We spent the morning taking the kids to the NASA Space Center and the boardwalk at Kemah — complete with sitdown dinner and amusement park rides. It was a great way to spend the day and even more fulfilling since I had planned to go to work today. It was like playing hookey. I really enjoyed spending time with Megan and the boys doing a family fun day, something unusual and frivolous.
The kids are thoroughly tired out from the whole affair and have snuggled down into their beds for a mid afternoon nap. Logan was so tired that he nearly fell asleep while riding the kiddy train in a loop around the boardwalk. Now, it is a very peaceful moment at home preceding what will surely be a boisterous few days over the holiday. This is the first time to have a Thanksgiving meal at our house with more than just the 4 of us. It will be a lot of fun and I know Megan is excited about hosting the event.
