Happy Thanksgiving (from the Pilgrims!)

This was a very easy day as far as baking/cooking was concerned. The campground hosted a huge Thanksgiving dinner, they provided the turkey, ham, rolls, plates etc, each family just had to provide one side, appetizer or dessert to serve 4-6 people: easy! I baked scones in the morning while the Dads took the kids to the pool.

Lunch was served at noon, we were entertained in line by the balloon guy - he gave me his amazing frog hat, promptly stolen by Jake!

We were on the beach by 1pm, so it was not a long drawn-out dinner by any stretch of the imagination! It was a beautiful day though, the sun came out and hanging out on the beach was a perfect way to spend the afternoon.

We did manage to get a family photo, thank goodness, as a while later, Nate, jumping waves in the ocean with the rest of the kids (by this point, Becca had sensibly changed into her swimsuit), fell in, completely going under water. It was chilly! Nate, being Nate, still came up smiling, gripping his orange spade, walked out towards us, beaming away, he just kept on walking right on past us, right towards the shower block!
