My sister in law highjacked Thanksgiving dinner from my other sister in law this year and had a get together at the Indian Rock lodge. The lodge has a huge fireplace for roasting hotdogs and marshmallows and windows wrapping all around the building. We skipped the hotdogs and had ham, turkey, and many lovely salads and soups.
The view is amazing as well as it overlooks the city. I really wanted to kick off the shoes and run the hills but instead decided that taking the kids on the trails would be way more fun! I enticed them to go hiking with the promise of throwing rocks in the pond below.
Little voices calling me to come and look at this or that as the wander around and discover make this place all the more special.
Life is fun these days with cousin Corbin a teenager now and Sam and his girlfriend and loooong time friend Britt are tweens. Oh the times I have ahead of me!
At least I can pinch them and cuss them from a distance!
As the sun goes down on Thanksgiving 2010 I am thankful to have spent it with family in the sunshine, hiking, in warmish weather at one of my own childhood haunts.
Angie Bee is one happy girl.
and to top it off, there was chocolate cake left when we got back to the lodge.
Today it was even warmer and the mister and I went for a 10 mile run while the kids played.
Life is good. I wish you all happiness too and hoping you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
