Finally Thanksgiving Day arrived. Chris suggested we take the kids to the zoo so that the cooks wouldn't be distracted. It was a beautiful sunny day. Before we left for the zoo, we attempted to take a picture of the grand kids with Nana. It was hilarious trying to get everyone to look in the same direction, yet alone smile!

 We loaded up the kids and headed to the National Zoo. The animals were all pretty active since it was cool and sunny. The three pandas were all moving around and we see Bao Bao, the cub, resting in a tree. While we looked at the pandas, we could hear the male lion roaring from his area. We were able to see the gorillas, orangutans, elephants, pandas, lions, tiger, seals, otters, and more. We ate lunch at the zoo, visited a few more animals and headed back for Thanksgiving dinner. 

Look hard and see a white panda bottom 

We arrived back at Cyn and Chris's house to more relatives. We helped get the last few tables ready and then sat down to eat. After a delicious meal followed by pie, we had the family auction. Brad sold a water color painting he'd made of Kentucky Farm, the home where his father lived as a child. After the auction most of the family headed back to their places. Brad turned on the Seahawks game and we all relaxed after stuffing ourselves.
