As you know stanley has been traveling all over America meeting new people and seeing new places. He couldn't have picked a better place to spend Thanksgiving then with a friend and fellow blogger Melanie from My Side of Life. He got to do some many fun things with her and her family. He played in her garden and helped to pick some amazing vegetables fresh for their Thanksgiving meal. He had never seen such a beautiful garden filled with fresh greens, peas and tomatoes. There was even a section of wildflowers that he just couldn't pass up playing in.Then of course it was on to the fun part, BAKING! I don't think Stanley loves anything more then getting into the kitchen and making an amazing dish. Who better to do it with the Melanie :O) First they created an amazing pie crust, but Stanley got stuck in the flour. It was actually kind of fun he had never just played in flour before. He was so tired by the time they were done he thought for sure a nap was in order. Luckily Melanie reminded him the pie crust is not the best choice for a bed.....well if a nap was out of the question a pick me up of chocolate chips was certainly a good idea. Then on to side dishes it was, and the Broccoli Rice casserole they were going to make would work just perfect. Finally all the meal preparation for thanksgiving was done it was on to the real work. Melanie had a blog post she needed some help on. Boy was this a great trip, so long and full of excitement. Thank you My Side of Life For welcoming Stanley in for Thanksgiving :O) he had so much fun and can't wait for his next trip :O) Colorado it is.
