Happy Thanksgiving :)

I have just got back from a truly lovely thanksgiving weekend. Colin invited Alice and I to his parents house in River Falls Wisconsin for our very first Thanksgiving, it was so great full of smiles, laughter and happiness. We arrived Wednesday evening and had a really great mexican style dinner then played pool and just hung out. Then it was Thanksgiving and we went for a really beautiful walk with Colin Jeff David and the two amazing dogs Arlo and Jerra, Arlo loved the water even if it was freezing and frozen over in areas :) Then we went to the swinging bridge near Colins grandparents house, we jumped up and down and made the bridge move which was fun before saying a quick hello to Wick and Nick and the went back to the house where the preparation for thanksgiving dinner was well underway. We ate loads of great cheese with crackers and met lots of lovely new people including the grandparents who were amazing with so many interesting stories to listen to, there were also two beautiful little girls who were adorable and so much fun to play with :) it all made me smile alot. Dinner was so great, I have a small appetite but this holiday I seemed to eat loads as all the food tasted so good. Then after dinner Alice and I sneaked into a bar with Colin to meet some of his high school friends which was so nice. Then Friday we went to Main street and a cool thirft store before meeting his mums beautiful horse. Then Alice and I took to the wrong side of the road and drove the car, it was scary at first esp when we found ourselves in the middle of a road and Alice couldnt find reverse,lol, but so much fun once we got used to it made me smile and laugh alot, and then it was evening and we did some drawing by the fire and had yet another amazing dinner. Bowling came next and us all bundling up warm to sit by a bonfire and then after some tv back at the house before a really good night sleep a really great end to an amazing weekend, I met so many lovely people and had so many lovely experiences, and although it makes me sad to know soon i have to leave all of this, all these experiences make me so happy that im just glad i got to have them at all.

Millie; that sounds like such a lovely time! I'm really glad you guys got to experience something so uniquely American in such a fun way. It's so strange to think that you are leaving so soon!
