Yes, we drove to Charlotte, NC, to visit Jon, Kitty and Fitzer for Thanksgiving.  We all had a great time.

Well, perhaps Max didn't.  I don't think Max, the miniature schnauzer, likes to travel.  As a matter of fact, he's definitely a home dog.  He doesn't like to ride in a car, he doesn't like his cousin dogs, he doesn't like sleeping in hotel beds.  The only thing he liked was the cold weather.

We had our Thanksgiving at the Mimosa Grill in downtown  Charlotte, which was a great move.  Fantastic buffet, no fuss, no mess.

The first photo was taken in the lobby of the building hosting the restaurant.  I really like the Moravian star Christmas decoration (upper right).  They are found throughout the Piedmont, and attributed to the Moravians that settled in the area.

The second and third photos are Fitzer in his primary mode of transportation.

Fitzer had made good progress since our last visit earlier this year.  He is crawling like crazy.  He has not tired enough of crawling to be inspired to try walking yet, but that's right around the corner.  And he's getting pretty verbal, uttering mono syllables constantly.  Mom & dad are doing a very good job, got to hand it to them, don't know where they get the energy!

So on Sunday, we packed up the Acadia with 4 people, luggage, and Max, and headed for home.  Traffic was pretty heavy and there were many accidents, so we were delayed a couple of hours, but we rolled into our garage about 7 p.m.  We were pretty tired, but it was a great trip.
