Greetings from Brookside Gardens

My sister's family didn't leave for New York until afternoon, so we had lunch with them at our parents' house after Paul finished his half-day of work -- there were lots of bagels and spreads so fortunately I hadn't eaten breakfast! We got to see a lot of my nieces, which was lovely. Afterward we took Daniel to Brookside Gardens, where we saw the holiday trains in the conservatory, animals in the nature center, and a heron that walked right next to us to get to the creek:

We went back to my parents' to eat Thanksgiving leftovers, so I got more sweet potatoes with marshmallows and lots of other food. Then we came home for The Mandalorian, because what is not to love (don't answer that if you have a reply -- I love it) and PBS's Great Performances broadcast of Kinky Boots, which I enjoyed a lot. Now we're watching Brian's Song but we're going to turn it off to watch tomorrow when we're all more awake, since it's rerunning then.
