Take a Hike


Once the turkey is cooked and the food is eaten, everyone deserves a little quiet time, especially if you have little ones in the house.

One team member remembers, "When my cousins and I were kids, my dad and uncles would take us all on a hike through the apple orchards after dinner. It kept us from being cooped up in the house, and it gave my mom and aunts time to unwind and clean things up a little. Best of all, dessert was always waiting for us when we got back! Even though we're all grown-up now, we still embark on our annual Thanksgiving hike."
