Thanksgiving at Natural Bridge

The next few blog entries will be of the "catch up" that we want to record and remember in our diary of travels and daily life. Hope it's not too boring for those that follow along.

Thanksgiving day we drove west to Natural Bridge for dinner at the Colonial House. This was my first year not cooking for a large crowd, so it was quite different, but it was a pleasant, delicious, and thankful meal. It had been a busy month, spending most days at the hospital with Kristy, so the plan was to meet my sister and brother-in-law, Wanda and Stuart for lunch, then we would drive back to MCV hospital to visit Kristy late in the afternoon.

It was a sunny and bright day, fairly warm for late November, so the two hour drive passed quickly, as did our time together. We were all stuffed with fresh Shenandoah turkey and gravy, Smithfield Ham, shrimp, and all the fixin's of a great Southern meal...and we didn't have to cook or clean up! :) :) What a novel idea!

We had many things to be grateful for, chief amongst them our family and friends, and being able to share time together. We are, indeed, very blessed.

We drove back to Richmond, going straight to MCV to visit with Kristy. KK was there, so we stayed a while and then we drove KK home for the evening.

You know the rest of the story.
