Fourth Year Anniversary and Many Thanks

It didn’t seem that long and this post has made the 1090 posts, and 4 years of blogging. I want to thank you for your visit, especially to all the commenter and silent readers.

In a way we are very much like the pilgrims but came way later so Thanksgiving celebration is a big thing for us. We had our Thanksgiving lunch at Bo’s parents and dinner at my sister, which she made Pho or Vietnamese noodle soup for us.

The remaining of Sunday’s photos. Biltmore Estate is very pretty in the Fall, with the busy schedule I didn’t make it up there for Autumn peak colors. But what little that’s left is still very pretty.

      • Cambree, I guess time sneaks up on us sometimes. ๐Ÿ™‚

        The weather was real nice that day, the girls thought that I couldn’t see them and a good thing that I had my zoom lens with me. ๐Ÿ™‚
