Thanksgiving was super low key this year, but totally perfect! I participated in my first ever Thanksgiving day run (called The Gobbler) and I'm definitely patting myself on the back about it :) I ran the 5k in 26:38 and got 8th place in women ages 20-29. I haven't been able to run nearly as much as I used to between cold weather and snow so I was really surprised and really happy with my time!
Thanksgiving dinner was different this year! Since it was just us, my parents and my younger brother, my parents treated us to a Thanksgiving buffet at the opening of Zion National Park. We were able to eat more food than you can imagine with the gorgeous mountains in the background. It was so nice! This is a pretty popular idea in southern Utah because we knew half the people at the buffet :) Eric fed Mia her first pie(s) and it's safe to say that she's a fan! (She also ate more food than we've ever seen her eat!) He was a proud daddy!
We spent the rest of our day trying to stay awake as we all relaxed together. Even though it was a quiet holiday, we had an amazing day with my family! And I'm pretty sure Mia can't wait for Thanksgiving next year :)
