Thanksgiving in the Valley

Thursday This year Brittany hosted Thanksgiving at her new house.
We debated between going to Grand Rapids, Michigan (where my sister and mom live) and going to Little Chute (most of Brooke's family). With Grand Rapids being a 9 hour drive (no stopping), we opted for the 4 hour drive to her family.
While getting ready for Thanksgiving I found these 30 plus year old German wines sitting in the garage. I guess they'd been sitting in Grandma Lungwitz's basement since then. We uncorked one of them for the night.

Meadow was at about the same point, but she didn't actually walk until much later.
