This year, we celebrated Thanksgiving with Pete's family in North Jersey. We had a really great time, New York City by day and listening to records by the fire in the evening...while stuffing our faces with the most amazing pecan pie. I seriously could've eaten this pie for every meal. Jacob got some QT with the other kiddos in the family, lots of park time (including the "ice park"-his first time skating!!) and made some new memories with his grandfather, "Bob-bo", making breakfast almost every morning! Mixing the batter and cracking eggs is his favorite! I'm really happy that we got to have a few uninterrupted days with Pete's family where he grew up. Every visit gives me something new to learn about him. And, we always leave swearing we'll move there within a year...we will see!! :)
Check out a few pictures from the long weekend and hop over to my Instagram for a few shots from The Big Apple Circus that we went to with "Papa Dan" and some more fam at Lincoln Center.
