|Ali and Allan|
We got to Hoover late Wednesday afternoon and began preparing Thanksgiving dinner while Allan and Adam put up the Christmas tree. We decorated the tree and did what we normally do when we all get together: play with Ali. Allan read to her and she played on our phones for awhile before it was time for scriptures, prayers, and bedtime.

The next morning we made the drive to my sister's in Navarre just in time to sit down for lunch. Once the football game was over Allan and I took off to run on the beach. My parents came as well and enjoyed a short walk on the beach before heading back.

The views were breathtaking and I could have run for miles and miles enjoying the sound of the waves and watching the sun set.
|Love the pier in Navarre|
|This is just beautiful|
|I thought this was a neat shot|
We had a nice run and enjoyed taking it easy and running at a comfortable pace. It's been a long time since I've run in the sand and it is much harder than I remember.
|Not fast but we knocked out a 5K on Thanksgiving|
On Thanksgiving night I braved the craziness and went to TWO Wal-Marts with my sister and her husband. Basically I just protected her from the buggies being used as weapons and the women who were relentless in their pursuit of a good deal. On Friday morning we made the 6 hour drive back home and were greeted by two very happy doggies. Lucky was ready for bed as soon as it was dark outside.

HBBC week 1could have been better but I wasn't too concerned with logging points this week and it shows. I did log 3.1 miles on Thanksgiving which also earned me bonus points since Allan ran too and my 1 hour of cooking/cleaning at Allan's mom's house earned me 2 points since we got bonus points for cooking/cleaning on Thanksgiving . In the first week I also earned 5 points for participating in the facebook group and I had 4 bonus points from tweeting, facebooking, and blogging about HBBC so that gives me a grand total of 15.1 points in week 1. Not great and nothing to be excited over but it's better than zero.
How was your Thanksgiving?
