3rd Annual Highland's Thanksgiving

We went to the Highlands for the third time for Thanksgiving. Twice is fun, but 3 times makes it an official tradition in our book. We did a lot of the same things we always do...enjoy cool weather, waterfalls, food, butterfly gardens, flowers, tea, and just the quiet relaxing atmosphere of the Highlands. This time an American family came with us who had never been there before...so it was fun letting them take-in the Highlands.

The waterfall on the mountain road...

Kumars Restaurant... They know us there. "Auntie" (I don't know her name, but she's like the lady-shop-owner) took Isaac for a few minutes and when he came back he had a gigantic chocolate bar. So funny! (no, he didn't eat any)
At Kumars, our friend had a butterfly land on his head...On Thanksgiving Day of course there was turkey...Isaac DID eat some of that...
...and Dr. Pepper...a truly American holiday!
We made gingerbread cookies...
...but this was about the only football involved...no Cowboys or Lions...just a cute little boy.
We held a snake (and other various creepy creatures) at the Butterfly Gardens...
and enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere of the tea plantation.
What a great Thanksgiving!!

That's cute about the candy bar. Auntie must really have thought Isaac enjoyed a LOT of chocolate! I'm assuming Kumar's is an Indian restaurant? The Highlands looks so fun.
