Thanksgiving at the Moab Rental

We rented a townhome for the week in a small development called Rim Vista, about 2 miles south of Moab. It was the perfect place to stay. It was quiet, had incredible sunrises and sunsets, fit all 8 of us, and had a jacuzzi and a tennis court.  You really don't need more than that.

The girls loved the crystals that Josh brought them. 

It is difficult to keep your eyes on the ball when the mountains are absolutely glowing in the distance.

It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without football (or some think...). 

Raya is ready to eat her 17 pound turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Steeles, Heltons, and Brauns!

Mmmmm. This is making me hungry! 
As a pescatarian, people always wonder what I eat for Thanksgiving (in fact, one person asked if the only thing I eat is PIE).  In my opinion the sides are better than the turkey anyway. 

Fred is selectively omnivorous.

Thanksgiving is without a doubt my favorite holiday. It is a time to be thankful for your family and loved ones, and eat amazingly delicious and caloric food while doing so. 
Thanks for planning such a fun Thanksgiving Raya and Josh!
It's too bad my dad couldn't come; he loves to see the whole family spending quality time together.

  1. I know I am one of the friends you are thankful for!!! "The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!" --Henry Ward Beecher

    Your photos, especially of the mountains aglow, are incredible. I would have spent the day watching football if I had window views like you did. You found a very special place Brady. What will you do next year?

    I love your expression in the photo with Fred gnawing on a turkey leg. Priceless.

    Glad it was a success.
