Oak Glen Thanksgiving Weekend 2009

One of the places I really enjoy going this time of year is Oak Glen. On Friday we went up for the day. I love the colorful fall leaves and the crisp air scented with the sweet smell of apples. The picture above was taken on our drive up and the one below was taken at our first stop at Parrish Pioneer Ranch.Can you see the moon in the bright blue sky? The day was just beautiful. I am so glad we had such nice weather for the Thanksgiving holiday. I am thankful that I have a job that allows me to spend time with my family at this time of year. Fall is a favorite time of year for my family.
The apples look and smell yummy! Shanna took this picture just before they yelled at her and told her she could not take any pictures in the store. We are all below trying to fit in between two branches of a tree. Shanna and I really enjoy taking pictures. We both took up cameras and wanted to get pictures of the fall colors. Some of the animals you can see are peacocks. They also have goats, sheep and chickens that you can see at Parrish Ranch. Shanna took lots of peacock pictures.
My girls and I. The first picture below is Kristin acting geeky. She fits into our family so well. Below her is Shanna sticking her head in the wanted poster. Did I mention we are all a bit geeky?
We ended the day enjoying the sunset and some Carmel apples.
Time spent together is the best!

A little bit of it all!
Thanksgiving was relaxing and the day was beautiful. It is always wonderful to visit with family and enjoy spending time together. I am always thankful for my family and the people I love.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving! I know we did!

New Moon & Twilight

I went to see New Moon and I have to say that I really enjoyed the movie. Watching the movie has made me want to reread the series. I have re-watched the original Twilight movie 3 times this week. Okay, I am a total geek! I do think they did a better job on the second movie.
I am just a sucker for a love story.
