Thanksgiving Came to Us Twice This Year. My sister came to visit from Colorado and my nephew had two week leave before he is gone on a mission for a year. It was nice to have them and their families over for Thanksgiving...
We met Haley, Stephanie, and her family for brunch.
It was so good getting to catch up and meet Steph's little boy. Beautiful family!
Brett and I got tired on the way home. Got a pedicab. It only cost us an arm and a leg, but we saved our feet from blisters.
My Uncle wanted to take us shopping to get us a fancy scarf.
He is something else. Generous would be the word.
That evening it was time for dinner. It was a the 21 club. Pretty amazing history there.
"Officially opened on January 1, 1930, '21' is one of America’s most famous speakeasies from the Prohibition Era. Designed with its own disappearing bar and a secret wine cellar to hide the illegal liquor from prying eyes, it’s a place where celebrities and captains of industry have wined and dined for more than 80 years." -- http://www.21club.com/web/onyc/history.jsp
We are in the "secret" wine cellar.
My dad's brother. 65 years young.
We had a terrible time.
A night never to be forgotten.
The next morning we headed home.
Thank you to my sweet mother-in-law for watching our nuggs.
We woke up at 5 in the am to watch the Today Show. Sweet Brett came with me. However, he could only hang for a bit. I stuck it out and became famous.
Hey Carson you're in my screen shot... could you scoot.
That afternoon we went to the federal reserve. They are pretty uptight around there. So no pictures of that deal. We did get to see other counties bars of gold. Pretty sweet, huh. I belong to a family of nerds. Later that evening we met up with my family at the hotel.
Then to dinner....
Then to the bar named after us. Cheers from the McGee's...
