Thanksgiving is the napping holiday for me. Naps are awesome. There was lots of sleeping at the Bartley household over Thanksgiving. Megan and I flew to Kentucky for Thanksgiving. Here is Megan on the airplane:
Blurry. Silhouetted. Artistic. Window seat. Hooray.
To pass time on the flight, we play Skipbo.
Megan is the champion of the sky. She never lost while we were in the air. I am going to make her a belt like this guy:
Then Megan took pictures out the airplane window. Here are some clouds over America:
You're damn right, they are Mr. Boxer.
In Louisville, we played Wii bowling. Jen & Gar and the kids brought the Wii. My mom and dad are Wii bowling champions. She was Triana. I was Berk. Dad was John.
Yes, my dad won. My mom took second. I took last.
Here are mom and dad, posing with their victorious Wii remote.
They taunt me in my defeat.
Mom had a unique Wii bowling style. It involved a huge sweeping motion that resembled nothing like actual bowling. She would start by lifting the Wii remote WAY above her head like such...
... then she would hold it straight back and not move her hand forward until after the ball was released. It was non-traditional, but totally effective. She crushed me. I realized I hit a new low in my technology career: my parents can beat me at video games. I am ashamed.
This is the group that gathered for Thanksgiving. Missing is John Eastberg and Zach Willenbrink. They stayed in Milwaukee due to previous commitments.
We partied with the family. They threw us a family baby-shower. It was a good Thanksgiving.
In Summary: my parents crushed me in Wii bowling, naps are awesome, clouds are pretty.
