Knox & I headed out early to Virginia to get some quality time in before the holiday. It was so nice to get to see all of family and I got to spend lots of time with both of my brothers so that was awesome too! The first weekend we were in town, we took Knox to one of my favorite childhood places in Richmond- 'Maymont Park'. The park has a petting zoo and lots of walking trails. I have many fond memories of visiting here as a child and was excited to get to take Knox.

One day while I was in town, I had to take my dad to his doctor's appointment. So, my mom enlisted her good friend Amy to come over and babysit. I was a little nervous, because Knox is going through a "stranger danger" phase, but he LOVED her! It was like they were long lost buds!

If you keep up with our blog, you will know that we are the proud owners of not one, but two "vintage" volkswagens. A beetle and a camper bus. So, my very thoughtful sister-in-law found cookie cutters in the shape of a beetle and a camper bus for Kyle. She made the cookies and we all decorated them together as a surprise for him before he arrived on Monday night.

Knox got to try his first Thanksgiving dinner. He was fairly okay with the sweet potato casserole (mostly the marshmallows, I think) and the mashed potatoes. The stuffing and turkey were a no go. However, the real show-stopper was the jello salad. Knox discovered that there in not much better in his world than jello salad. To each his own, I guess.
