Our Thanksgiving

We were very glad to be able to see so many relatives over the Thanksgiving Weekend.  We have really enjoyed our time in the San Diego area.

We are staying at the Admiral Baker RV park not far from Qualcomm Stadium.
To start the long weekend off right, we were able to play golf Wednesday afternoon with cousin Kevin at Mission Trails Golf Course.
That was followed on Thanksgiving Day by brunch over at Kevin and Sue's place.
Two of their four boys were there (Trevor and Tristin).  Cameron and Kyle (there other two spent Thanksgiving in Michigan where they are working/going to school.  We watched the Detroit Lions take care of business.

Then it was over to Rob and Chris' out in Del Mar for the rest of the day.
We had a nice meal but saved enough room for the big event on Friday, when 20 people were there.  It was the first time everyone had been together since Robb's brother Matt and Sierra got married in September.

We had some of the Warners, Lovelaces, Crums and other relatives represented there.  It was fun to meet everyone and learn more of the family and extended family.  While Rob cooked the turkey on the grill, the rest of us were hanging out.
It was quite a production, but they made it look pretty easy...especially for those of us that were just watching..
The furniture was rearranged a bit, the dinner table was set up
We said grace, Rob gave a toast...
And we stuffed ourselves!
After dinner, we gathered for a group photo
all went for a walk around the block.

When we returned, Sierra set up Chromecast and we saw some pictures of Matt and Sierra's honeymoon and a great video of their wedding.
We did some more interacting before we said good night.  It was a memorable time and nice of Chris and Rob to host us all.

Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving too!

Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles!  Until next time...


  1. A really wonderful Thanksgiving with family. We ate dinner with our RV park family and it was wonderful.

  2. Happy to see you got to have a family reunion at Thanksgiving. Always fun to hear what others have been up to. I have never seen a turkey cooked like that, looks good though. I like the location of AB campground, close to everything fun.

  3. That is some extended family you have! You need to set up an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of them all... :cD
