We’re in Charlottesville, VA for a few days to celebrate Thanksgiving. Today Steve took Thomas to the Rapidan River and taught him how to fly fish.
There was a beaver dam. All the trees in the surrounding area were chewed up.
Steve says you have to sneak up on the fish because they can see you.
Can you find Steve in the woods?
The fish were really biting. Here’s the day’s catch:
These fish were on vacation from Sweden.
A caterpillar fish.
It was a nice relaxing day outdoors. You don’t really need to catch fish to have fun.
Gina is on a quest to create bread that reminds Thomas of home. This bread was a big hit yesterday when it was fresh out of the oven. Thomas calls it Zopf.
Yesterday it was warm enough to sit out in the sun and eat lunch.
And today it snowed!
We were tired of working on our dissertations, so we baked a gingerbread house. From scratch too, the walls and everything. Some walls turned out a little bendy. It stayed together long enough for us to take this one picture:
Then boom. The roof fell in.
We were sorry to see our little house collapse but it still tastes good.
Thomas and his woodwind quintet played a concert last night at the Tate Street Coffee Shop. The place was packed and the music was smokin’.
After running seven miles at the park this morning, Thomas went to Food Lion where he procured some very nutritious items at a great discount. This cake mix was just $1.
He also couldn’t pass up a deal on 45 pouches of sour gummy worms.
With those ingredients he created these glorious cupcakes. Henceforth these shall be known as “Thomas’ famous Halloween cupcakes.”
