Grandpa and I spent Thanksgiving night at a hotel near the camp ground, and returned to spend the morning with everyone on Friday. You see, our idea of roughing it is spending the night at the nearby Hampton Inn.
JDog was the chief fire pit cook, using his handy-dandy cast iron Dutch ovens over the fire. His specialties were corn bread and peach cobbler. He also made the mashed potatoes and warmed up the ham.
Some say that the Tryptophan in turkey causes sluggishness and sleepiness in those who eat it. But even though there was no turkey on our table, sleep overtook these fellows after the meal.
At the Lake
|Clara was relentless in trying to skip a rock. She came close a few times, but never got one to successfully skip.|
|Grandpa tried to convince us that he caught this fish.|
|Robert was fascinated with the dead fish, and had to poke at it a bit with a stick.|
|Searching for shells, bugs, worms, and any other creepy crawlies|
|Looking through his "binoculars"|
|Robert threw a rock in the water, and Max thought he should try to fetch it! He didn't get too far out, though, before getting a little panicked, and heading back to shore.|
I brought a couple arts & craft projects, including this M&M turkey project. Robert didn't want to put too many of the candies on the picture, because he had plans to eat the leftovers.
|Kelsey brought a couple Indian headband kits.|
|Isn't this a precious little face?!|
