Thanksgiving Part 2

This is a well overdue follow up to this post, but here goes.

After we arrived in Niceville, FL we had a lot of quality family time...much more than we are used to. We were staying with Brooks in his 2 bedroom/1 bathroom apartment, so needless to say it was close quarters. However, it was very nice to get to spend a Thanksgiving with Brooks. He hasn't been able to come home for the holiday since he started working with basketball teams, so it was nice to have all 4 of us together for once. Mom brought everything but the kitchen sink down to cook and with the help of Publix Thanksgiving felt just like it was at home. Okay, the Publix food wasn't as good as my mom's cooking, but it worked for the situation we were in. Remember I said felt, not tasted.

While we were there we got to see Brooks do his thing. They had two games, so we got to Brooks' new team play and see him coach.

We took another trip down to the beach, only this time in the daylight. I wanted to see this blue water they always talk about. It was a very windy, rough day, but the ocean was as pretty as always. Another family photo session took place, here are a few of the highlights.

It was another long drive home back through Alabama, Georgia, and finally back into South Carolina. It was great getting to see Brooks, do a little shopping, feel the sand in my toes (for a bit), and count our blessings. I have so much to be thankful for on my last Thanksgiving as a Savage.
