The second of our twice annual treks back to the homeland landed on Thanksgiving this year, which is a perfect time to be in Minnesota. Though repeatedly warned of the bitter temps, the weather was a balmy 30 degrees most of the time, and we got outside quite a bit.
The airplane ride there was thankfully uneventful, both in terms of traveling with a two year old, and my fear of not being in control in tight spaces 6 miles above the earth. Tory had fun, at least, and only marginally bugged the dude trying to sleep in front of us.
