We had a wonderful time in PA for Thanksgiving. We have learned that attempting to leave DC on the day before Thanksgiving is next to impossible. It took us almost 8 hours last year!! (It should take a little over 3 hours.) We decided to leave Thursday morning and arrived in record time. My sister and her family were down for the weekend as well. We had a wonderful time with family, eating a great big turkey meal. The weather was unusually warm, so we spent a lot of time outside taking walks and playing ball in the yard. The kids love being with their cousins and grandparents. It was a great break.
