Thanksgiving Trip 2012

We flew from Phoenix to Newark, New Jersey on the Friday before Thanksgiving and stayed the first night in the Hilton near the airport.  Bright and early on Saturday we drove up to West Point, New York to attend the Army vs. Temple football game at Michie Stadium and to the annual tribute to veterans.  Some of the Corp marched on the field and the paratroopers came down, the last one with the game ball.  We met Vincent and Quinn there and watched Army get pummeled 56-32.  It was a cold and blustery day.  Afterwards we went up to Walden, New York for a 5 day stay with Vincent, our daughter-in-law Heather and grandchildren Quinn (11) and Paris (9).  We had a great visit and while there we held Christmas and Quinn's birthday a month early.
