Thanksgiving 08

Happy late Thanksgiving to all. Tom and Annette Kimball came in town for the holiday and we had a wonderful weekend. Thanksgiving morning we headed down town to participate in the Turkey Trout. It was a 5k walk/run, but there were so many people there it was literally impossible to run. The total estimate of people was 35,000!!! It was neat to see so many people get out and participate with their families. After the race was over we came home and Ryan made us all a yummy Thanksgiving brunch, croque madame with fresh berries and mint. The rest of the afternoon was spent relaxing and watching football. This year we cheated and went out for dinner. We went to this fantastic restaurant downtown called Charlie Palmer. The food was delicious. At home, we made homemade vanilla bean ice cream, homemade pumpkin pie and whipped cream.
The rest of the weekend we wanted to give Tom and Annette a little taste of what is authentic to the area. Friday night we took them to the best home cookin' you can find here in Dallas, Babes Fried Chicken Saturday we showed them around downtown Fort Worth and the stock yards. That evening we went to Joe T Garcia's where they only serve fajitas or enchiladas with a line out the door, literally. Sunday was really neat, we went to the Dallas Museum of Modern Art for the King Tut exhibition. It was so cool to see all of the ancient artifacts from his tomb. But beware if you are going to go, Tutankhamun is not actually there. Sad. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and have so much to be thankful for, and we hope all of you did too. Thank you so much Tom and Annette for coming in town for Thanksgiving it was so great to spend time with together.
