Thanksgiving the California way

Yes, I realize Thanksgiving was several weeks ago, but since last year, I didn't manage to finish my Thanksgiving post until January, I feel like I'm doing pretty good here. As has become our routine, we spent Thanksgiving in California with Matt's parents. We flew into San Francisco early in the day, so we insisted on playing in the city for a bit before heading on to their house.
B enjoyed his first San Francisco trolley ride, as well as a stroll through Union Square, up and down several blocks of hills, and a brief stop at Fishermans' Wharf.
After our city adventure, we spent a calm week at the house, with lots of reading, trips to the park and nature museum, and of course, cooking.
Matt and I always do the holiday cooking, and we took on a lot this year. We started the day with homemade cinnamon rolls (because obviously the day needed more carbs), and dinner consisted of turkey, dinner rolls, green beans, my favorite sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and stuffing.
After taking a break to visit and let our stomachs make room, we finished off the night with pecan and pumpkin mousse pies.
Unfortunately, we left the next day, so we didn't get to partake in the leftovers (boo), but it was probably better for our waistlines. It was so sweet to see how much fun B had with his Grammy and Grandpa, and we're looking forward to seeing the other grandparents for Christmas very soon!
