AGE 5, MONTH 4
NOV 27 – DEC 1 (2019)
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27
We drove to Bend, OR in a windstorm and snowstorm. It was a long drive. In Washington, all the tumbleweeds sticking to car grills cracked us up! Once, we had to pull over because one stuck to our front end and it partially obstructed the windshield. At the shoulder of the road, it blew right off.
We stopped at Burgerville in the Dalles for Bliss shakes.
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 28
There was lots of snow, so Todd played outside and helped my dad (“Grandpa”) feed the birds and shovel the driveway and sidewalk.
We had Thanksgiving dinner at my sister’s house. It was an opportunity for family photos!
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29
Karin came over in the morning to visit. Todd took a bath in Grandma’s big tub.
My mom (“Grandma”) made Afghan Spinach, Dal Makhani, and Vegetable Biryani for dinner. American Ninja Warrior was on TV and Todd got amped up doing his training moves. After dinner we cracked up playing the Telestrations game (3 rounds).
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30
We got bread for Todd at the Village Baker, then did some shopping at REI. In the afternoon we visited Santa. Todd had a list prepared, in his own writing. He wanted three things for Christmas: Minecraft Legos, Pop-up book, and Lego sets.
We stopped by Karin’s house before dinner at Bronx Born Pizza. Todd loves playing with Lucy! The pizza place had vegan cheese, so we tried it. After pizza, we had non-dairy sorbetto at Bonta.
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1
We visited Karin’s family in the morning then drove home. We like to stop at the Burger King to eat Impossible Whoppers. Todd plays while eating fries.
