THIS IS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2014!
A fully documented day after Thanksgiving. A trip to the park, more dogs than usual, and of course lots of food-pix. Enjoy!

_MG_8846
Woke up from my post-Thanksgiving turkey coma. Was very happy to semi-sleep in.

_MG_8848
First face I see in the morning. Usually it’s Tubby when I’m at home – but alas Tweedy and Tubby are at war.

Took some photos of the family we spent Thanksgiving with for them to keep. Did a quick edit and sent them along.
