These guys were giving us all directions. We brought food for our local food bank and these two were collecting cash for the food bank! There were a lot of people there! All getting some exercise before the big meal! The announcer with the purple hat said there were over 3,000 people!! Wow! Not bad for a cold November morning.
Some people even decided to imitate the turkeys there were about to eat!Some people didn't think eating turkey was the best thing to do on Thanksgiving!
We finished the race :-) and then headed straight for a coffee stand! Yum! Nice warm drink after a cold morning. It was a great time and we are both thinking it should be a Thanksgiving tradition! Care to join us next year?

Some cabin fever set in so outside to the tractor, swings, and beautiful country we all went!
Layne took a little ride on the horse swing! Wow! She loves going really high and fast. Wonder where she got that! Kristin!
The lounge (that is what I call it but others might say it is an office) is the smallest room in the house but it seems to be the most popular! Even the dogs and the next door neighbor, Tyler, like being in the LOUNGE!
If course there was snack time too!!!Both of the kids like to play the piano. Ryland turns the sheet music like he is reading it and then says, "The End!" when he wants to turn the page to different music! Here is Ryland's version of Old McDonald!
Here are some hanging out pictures we took during the day!
More adventures to come because Keri and Ryland stayed until Sunday. I am off to see them now!

This is what he is smiling about!
The gas prices!!! Wow! What a change. Mike thought this might be the cheapest gas he will purchase for the rest of his life so we documented it! First Mike is surveying the price to make sure it is really only $1.89. If you know Mike you know that is true. Look at the smile as he fills the tank! Gotta love him!

Our grandkids were transformed into different creatures last night. A Goat, A Mermaid, and a T-Rex! Halloween! They all had a good time and we wish we would have been there to see it all. We have the next best thing though, pictures. Here is the report from Kath about Halloween with Kyle and Finn;
Happy Belated Halloween. Hope it was good, ours was pretty cute. As we approached Sausalito for the costume parade, Kyle and I dressed as a shepherd and his wife with one baby goat to heard, we noted that we were feeling rather biblical. ( we found the goat costume first and decided to be shepherds to fit in) We went to Yoga of Sausalito to trick-or-treat and met a little boy, all of 3 years old by the name of Finn. We told him our baby was named Finn too, to which he replied, "it's baby Jesus!" So, we became Mary, Joseph, and Jesus the Goat! We're hoping he will perform a healing on our back yard and chew down all the weeds!
Kristin and Justin took Layne around with Jen and Larry and family. Layne was a mermaid and at the first house she took a couple of spills because mermaids aren't designed to run! Layne went to a couple of houses and said "Trick or Treat" and came back with no candy. Kristin and Justin had to show her how it was done. She had a blast when she figured it out!
I will add the report from Keri and gang! Keri had a wedding to photograph today. Ryland was afraid of his t-rex costume at first so Mark and Keri had a back up. They didn't need the back up. Ryland rallied and was a T-Rex! More about Halloween tomorrow.
