Do your Thanksgiving traditions revolve (after the thanks part) around food, football, and holiday parades?
While we do get around to these, our tradition has come to include:
We go to the Phoenix Zoo for their nighttime Zoo Lights. The displays are incredible. The moving ones are difficult to photograph, but this spider web was nice.
And this display shows that we truly are in Arizona, as the saguaro cactus are lit up.
Then on Thanksgiving morning, in order to make room for the food, we head out to the Annual Mesa Turkey Trot.
Those who do the 10K run have a chance to beat the turkey--see him there on the right? Those of us who do the one or two mile run or walk do it just for fun and a T-shirt and a chance to do something with the grandkids.
None of the family beat the turkey this year.
