251/365 A laid-back Thanksgiving

I'm back! My vision is improving one week after my surgery, and I could NOT resist getting some photos on Thanksgiving.

We spent the day at my aunt and uncle's house for the first time. The atmosphere was laid-back and relaxed, just the way I like my holidays.

Their house is on the smaller side, so a few people had to eat in the next room. Grandpa was thrilled, because that meant he could watch football while he ate. Chase and my cousin, Wade, joined him, and stretched out on the couch afterward.

Later in the afternoon, Uncle Dan set up their tipi. They've had one for years, and they regularly take it when they travel west for camping. It's larger, more comfortable, and circulates air much better than a standard camping tent. They also have a wood stove that goes inside, so they can camp in very cool weather.

I watched part of its construction this afternoon.Beautiful weather, great food, and a good time with family -- a fantastic Thanksgiving!
