{HOLIDAY} Thanksgiving Picnic

We decided to do Thanksgiving at a park this year and change up the menu. We did a picnic instead: 3 variations on turkey paninis, apple butternut squash soup, salads and potato chips. Though I do love the traditional Thanksgiving meal I think most agreed that we didn't miss that dinner one bit. My sister planned a Thanksgiving scavenger hunt for the kids after dinner and they had fun running around doing that. Our picnic tables were right next to the playground and the kids loved that too. 
So grateful that I could spend Thanksgiving with most of my family (missed siblings that couldn't come)!
