Thanksgiving at "Home".
For Thanksgiving this year, Dentist husband and I decided it was time for me to go "home"--Boulder, CO where I was raised for the holiday. We haven't spent a Thanksgiving there since Dentist Husband was in dental school and it has been three years since we as a family have been there. After this visit, we all realized that it had been way too long. Boulder is too great of a city to not visit often. My DNA recognizes it as home and thankfully, my parents still live there in the house I was raised in. (FYI: I see my parents about 3 times a year, but for various reasons, it hasn't been in CO in recent years.)
Here we are on Pearl Street--a famous outdoor walking mall.
Toothsome #1 in front of the house I was raised in. My parents still live there.
The tire swing in the back yard. I was lucky enough to be raised with a beautiful very private backyard. Growing up I spent hours on this tire swing. So fun to see my kids doing the same.
Silly picture taken in the front room of my house.
Me with my parents. I am the youngest and closet sibling to me is 4 1/2 years older. I spent a lot of "alone" time with them growing up. I love and adore them.
Toothsome #2 with her name sakes. Her first name is my mom's and her middle name is my Dad's.
While on Pearl Street, my husband saw this University of Colorado shirt on a mannequin and spontaneously purchased it for me. The University of Colorado is in Boulder, CO and I was raised watching their games. They even were National Champions in football my senior year in high school. Go Buffs!
