One of my favorite Instagram accounts is the one ran by the TSA.

This humorous account shares pics of many interesting items found by the TSA. At times, people aren’t happy with the agents snapping photos of their stuff. One good example is when they came across a humongous lobster. Continue reading TSA Says That Your Pie Can Fly On Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is fast approaching. And while I wouldn’t consider myself a big fan of traditional Thanksgiving foods (here’s looking at you turkey!), it’s still a good excuse for family to get together.

The holiday is “celebrated in Canada and the United States as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year“, according to Wikipedia.

A few years back we had a not so typical Thanksgiving and a couple of years back we took a quick trip over the holiday.

Did you know that you could have a Thanksgiving feast at other destinations around the world? Continue reading Have A Thanksgiving Feast Around the World

Southwest Airlines seems to really get it when it comes to customer service.

They offer a Really Cool Perk for Kids, which Lucas was able to get after I inquired about it a few times. They’ve done some fun in-air stunts like Turning an Aisle Into a Runway in the Sky and they always seem to be running giveaways for free trips..

Overall, after flying Southwest numerous times in the past few years, we find their staff to be some of the friendliest in the industry. Continue reading Southwest Offering Free Drinks for Halloween

Our Upcoming Thanksgiving Plans

Screen Shot 2013-11-27 at 1.44.29 AM

Last year, we had a not so typical Thanksgiving. Kim and I started out early by running in a 5 mile “Turkey Trot” in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. For dinner rather than stick to traditional holiday food we had Turkish food for turkey day!

This year we’ll be taking a little trip for Thanksgiving. We’re not heading anywhere glamorous or too exciting but we’ll be squeezing in an extra trip this year regardless.

Off Topic: A Not So Typical Thanksgiving

This past Thanksgiving was definitely unique and different for a few reasons.

The #1 way it was different was that this was my first Thanksgiving as a Dad.
All experiences these days seem to be different (new or old) and better with Lucas around.
I am very thankful to have my amazing little boy in my life!

Kim and I started off Thanksgiving 2012 by running in the Prospect Park Track Club’s 5 Mile Turkey Trot. This was the longest run for both of us. It was a nice challenge and accomplishment to complete. We both were really happy with how we did and are now talking about trying to run a 10K (6.2 miles) in the future.

The race sold out with 2,500 registered participants. We were lucky to have beautiful weather in New York on Thanksgiving. We both felt great (and exhausted) after finishing the race.
Some relaxation was needed when we got home before eating our Thanksgiving dinner…
