We decided to surprise the kids and their bald old grandpa. We drove 7 hours with all our uncooked Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving day to cook the next day. Kids had no idea I packed their stuff, nor where we were going. We treated my dad to no peace and quiet for a couple days. The snowstorm was a bonus. Also appreciated his wood cookstove is big enough for a 20lb turkey (whereas my woodstove is too small). It was a Thanksgiving to remember.
