I love Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite holidays because it’s basically a non denominational and non materialistic Christmas. There’s an interesting history to it which, from what I’ve read, isn’t as pleasant as it’s often made out to be. No matter, as this years Thanksgiving was quite pleasant.
When I was a kid, I really wanted a brother. I was eventually blessed with an incredible sister, but in the meantime I grew very close to one of my cousins. He’s the closest I’ve ever had to having a ‘real’ brother, and we’re quite close. We ended up moving out of India when we were both adolescents, and I’ve visited him in Africa twice. He recently started college near where my parents live and that meant that he was joining us for thanksgiving. It was his first Thanksgiving and he was determined to make it count. Awesome!
Long story short, we visited family in Rochester, NY and then headed over to have Thanksgiving at a family friend’s house. Here’s are some pictures that documented the momentous occasion.
1) Heading over to dinner
2 and 3) Salad (YUM!)
4) Getting the baby a bib for his first thanksgiving.
5) Eating. Nom!
6 and 7) No pie, but we had this incredible creme brulee!
8 ) Taken right before I began my journey back to Boston.
And finally the picture of the night! This one speaks for itself.
