Thanksgiving

What a great long weekend. I got in a 37 mile ride on Friday morning, a 40 mile ride on Saturday morning and a 8.5 mile run this morning. I spent a bit of time on the computer working on training schedules and nutrition write-ups and I finished up a few assignments for school. This is my last week of school and I am super excited. I can't wait to have Dec. off before I start another semester of school.
Thanksgiving was a lot of fun. Karel and I went to Lenore's parents house in Riverside (downtown Jacksonville) at 2pm. I brought my fruit pizza dish and I also made a brocoli and chickpea side dish. I added a little low sodium ginger soy sauce and sesame seeds to the brocoli dish and then baked it in the oven.
I was really excited for Karel and I to celebrate our first thanksgiving together as husband and wife and I was also excited for Campy to meet his new girlfriend. I was looking forward to this all week....Lenore has a chihuahua named Annabell and this would be the first time that Campy would interact with another dog. I was really excited to see if the two got along and if they acted the similar since Campy is a chihuahua/italian greyhound mix.
As soon as campy got out of the car, Annabell and Campy had a few sniffs of each other and then they started playing. They were running all around the backyard in circles, chasing each other. I couldn't even take a picture of them they were running so fast. Campy also enjoyed his first thanksgiving with a few pieces of Turkey from Karel. Oh did he love that!
Thanksgiving was great and we enjoyed the people around the table as we shared stories and talked about random stuff. I missed being with my family but I always tell them how thankful I am to have them in my life.
I hope everyone had a great weekend.
