Thanksgiving At Bentley And Abroad 2012

This year when the special day to give thanks (although, I think we should be grateful everyday) came about, we were joined by Uncle Sam and Aunt Jeanne's family, our friend Clarence, as well as Hannah and Eric all the way from Indiana, Isaac and Allie and Isabella, and our cousin Benjamin. Thanksgiving day was wonderful, a early Turkey Trot to Clarence's farm, followed by a phenomenal and delicious meal made by my mother, a walk around the autumn landscape and forests of Bentley Farm, afterwards a momentous serving of deserts and goodies, topped off with a time to reflect and show gratitude. The next day we left for a touristic visit to quaint Stockbridge, MA, the one-time home of intellectual and Princeton University president, Jonathan Edwards. After enjoying the sights and history of Stockbridge we adjourned to Springfield, MA where we had the privilege to attend an breathtaking Christmas light show along with a delectable dinner at the Italian pizzeria restaurant. We really do have so much to thankful for. 

A special thanks to Aunt Jeanne for taking these photos.
