The Spadaccini family had unexpected visitors in their yard Thanksgiving Day. "While readying the family meal for Thankgiving, my husband's brother and wife came for a visit and spotted the turkeys in our back yard. They had escaped the pen created by their owners and wandered around the neighborhood, including jumping on our porch roof," said Julie Spadaccini, who submitted the photo. "The neighbor came over that evening and checked to see if we had seen the turkeys. He later returned to let me know they had safely wandered home."
