Thanksgiving was really fun this year. Morning of, we flew down to Miami super early. We got in town just in time for Thanksgiving dinner with Dave’s parents.
It got chilly fast in Chicago, so it was really nice to be in the sun. So much so that Dave and Nico got some swims in at the pool. The water wasn’t heated (LOL). Nico did not mind. Dave did, a little. I was excited to read and relax in a chair in the sun.
On Saturday, the boys went to do judo at a big judo place down there. I got to see one of my good friends from grad school (Ursula) who lives with her family in Cooper City. We got our nails done and had a blast just hanging out.
We also spent the afternoon with a family that Mike and Gay know. They have a pretty sweet house with a pool and 4 kids, three of whom were pretty close to Nico’s age. Of course Nico had a blast. We also got to see Dave’s best friend and their family. They have a son who is about Nico’s age. They hit it off.
It is comforting to know that we can take Nico places and he can figure out a way to get along and even have fun with other kids.
