Thanksgiving weekend

Had a great Thanksgiving weekend and hope you all did too. I went for a hunt early on Thanksgiving with Ben and his dad. I saw 5 nice does, but no bucks. Still had a great time in the woods- experiencing the woods waking up to a beautiful morning. I then drove over to Pony Pasture for the Sweet Potato 5k, picking up John and Peyton on the way. My mom, both sisters, niece, nephew, and brother-in-law joined us, along with Nate and Lexi. VMI was representing strong at the 5k, bringing in the top three runners, with Dawson not far behind. Not a bad showing the the keydets on a beautiful Thanksgiving morning. We then grabbed some coffee back at the apartment with Nate and Lexi and departed soon after for my folks' place. Had a great day with family, and our friends Phil and Amy who joined us for a yum Thanksgiving meal. So grateful for great friends and family to spend a laid back day with. Felt very fortunate as I know there are many who may not have food, family, or shelter on Thanksgiving.

Peyton and I went over to Tuckahoe Thursday evening where we had dessert and hung out with her family for the evening. We spent the night there and then had a fun day Friday relaxing around the farm.
On Saturday morning, my nephew Micah ran the 8k course from the race he had missed because of being sick a few weeks back. Here are a few pictures from the run.

Saturday afternoon we did some cider pressing out at Tuckahoe- always a fun time. Had a small bonfire after pressin cider to end a nice fall afternoon.
