I love cool whip and Todd's mom had cinnamon cool whip, which I had never seen before, so I loaded my pie up with it
The rest of Thanksgiving, we just hung out with family and took it easy. Todd might have had 3 more turkey sandwiches while we were hanging out.
We got up on Friday and ran on the treadmill in the basement. I'm happy to report I ran 1.5 miles pain free! When I went to the doctor earlier in the week, he said I'm okay to start running again and to increase by 1/2 mile at a time. I ran 1 mile a couple times earlier last week so I bumped up to 1.5 miles on Friday. By the time we showered and got ready for the day, it was already lunch time so Todd helped his mom make cabbage & noodles. I'd had this one other time at their house and it is surprisingly very good. We might have to start making it at our place now.
Friday afternoon, Todd, myself, his parents, and his cousins, took a little road trip to Youngstown. I had actually never been there so his dad drove us around and gave me a tour of the city. We first drove through Mill Creek Park, which is the 2nd largest metropark in the U.S. There's a golf course, lots of running trails, and several historical sites, including Lanterman's Mill, a historic landmark built in 1845. We stopped at the Mill to get out and walk around.
After driving through the park, we drove through downtown Youngstown (a lot nicer than what I expected!) and drove through Youngstown State University's campus. Our last stop was to Rust Belt Brewing Company in the old B&O railroad station building. See what I mean when I say we always stop at a brewery or winery on any trip we go on? Not saying I'm complaining or anything...
After arriving back from Youngstown, we enjoyed a big family dinner followed by watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation for the first time this holiday season.
Saturday morning, we got up to do our Insanity workout followed by eating apple pie for breakfast. We left shortly after so we could get back home in time for Todd to watch the second half of the Ohio State-Michigan football game. It was the first time we'd had Thanksgiving together at Todd's parents' house and it was a great weekend!
Yes, I'm aware that all of my pictures from this post are only of Todd, I honestly can't believe we didn't get a single picture together or of the whole family. I blame it on eating too much good food.
