This year we continued the Thanksgiving tradition and drove to Sun City, Arizona to visit my Grandpa and Grandma Wimer. The trip there is about 6 hours, which with a one year old I thought would be more like an eternity. Oliver was beyond patient and if I should expect anything less!

We arrived on Wednesday evening, settled in and relaxed for 3 straight days. It was beyond wonderful to spend quality time with family.

Look at how much Oliver has changed in just 12 short months:

Thanksgiving 2010 vs. Thanksgiving 2011

We sure do have a lot to be thankful for this year! Here are a few other highlights from the Sun City adventure!

Oliver Lee by day and Bruce Lee by Night

Our first real Halloween was a huge success! Instead of spending a bunch of money on a costume that Oliver may or may not cooperate with, we decided to use what we authentic, silk dragon suit from  Shanghai and a blue bandana. We were torn between Mr Miyagi, The Next Karate Kid or Bruce Lee. On top of a great costume, some good laughs and a very happy little boy...and best of all, a Halloween with Grandpa Bob and Grandma Dorrie!
