Poem for Monday and Scott's Run

We ended Thanksgiving weekend with a nice, relaxing day with our kids that started with everyone sleeping late, so we did not find Adam snow boots while Black Friday sales were still in effect, but he can probably make it till winter break unless we get an early snowpocalypse, which given the past few years is possible. Eventually everyone got up and we had lunch, then went to Scott's Run Nature Preserve right across the bridge to Virginia, where we hiked along the creek to the Potomac River, which is wide and flat there but kind of low, good for skipping stones and watching canoeists. Practically everyone we saw had a dog. We were a bit late in the season for our annual photo, so there were not many leaves left on the trees:

Because we were out enjoying the beautiful weather, we did not watch any of the Ravens game, which they blew at the end (kind of the way the Terps blew their game on Saturday, while Washington can't seem to win with or without RGIII). We did take Daniel food shopping, and we took both sons to Noodles & Company for an early dinner (I had the Indonesian peanut noodles with tofu, which was yummy), then to Cold Stone Creamery (which now has peppermint ice cream for the season, which is also yummy!). We watched what I thought was the mid-season finale of Once Upon a Time but apparently there's a new episode next week, plus we watched another couple of episodes of Madam Secretary, with which we'll catch up eventually!
