Thanksgiving at the Beach

This year we decided to try something new for Thanksgiving and joined my two brothers and parents in Hilton Head. My parents hosted the meal in their condo and we all brought something to contribute. It was fun! Their rental was large enough to seat everyone comfortably and my mom managed to cook a great meal in a kitchen she'd never seen before!

We missed my sister being with us though!

The weather was a little too cool to enjoy the beach early in the week, but we had some great weather at the end.

Family volleyball on the beach

Riding bikes and playing tennis were on my must-do list. It was especially neat to see my dad and son dueling it out on the court!


My younger kids had fun building sand castles and playing in the water with their cousins. My mom got to collect seashells with the grandchildren. We all enjoyed live music and a shrimp boil one night at The Salty Dog. It was a treat to play lots of games and spend time just hanging out. Thanksgiving at the beach was a success and I'll treasure the memories we made together!

  2. Looks like you've found a new tradition. At least it shows that it doesn't matter where we are, being together with family makes the holidays so much more special. Wishing you blessings!

    You're back!
    So happy that you're back to blogging . . . I've always enjoyed your posts!
    Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I think it's so much fun when we can mix up the holidays every once in a while invite new people, go out of town, add new items to the dinner menu.
    It looks like you had a great holiday!
    Sending warm hugs and happy thoughts!
