One story I must share that I will never forget on Thanksgiving. We were home and it was early on Thanksgiving morning and we were watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade when we saw outside on our front lawn was not one but 6 wild turkeys! We thought we were being punked because it was Thanksgiving! and we had a yard full of turkeys running around, our kids thought it was cool seeing such a sight on Thanksgiving Day! Below is an actual photo from that day and some of the turkeys in our yard lol
