Thanksgiving 2012

 As is our new family tradition, we enjoyed a delicious, unusual Thanksgiving dinner on a beautiful day here at camp. Kyle loves planning the menu, and starts thinking of concepts a year in advance!

 Here he is sampling his delicious menu.
This year we bought a turkey breast instead of a whole bird. It was a wise move, plus it made cooking time so much shorter.

 This year we had a tapas feel to the menu. Here is Kyle's twist on green beans with bacon (wrapped in crescent rolls).
 Mini-muffin style stuffing with cranberry balsamic dipping sauce
 Potato Au Gratin stacks
 Turkey and veggie spring rolls
 Sweet potato "cannoli" stuffed with mashed sweet potatoes
 This sums up our entire family's feelings about our fancy meal.

After our dinner, we went on our traditional Thanksgiving day walk. It was 64 degrees today - unseasonably warm. Last year, there was ice on the lake during our turkey walk. While we did see a little ice last week, there was no trace of ice today!

 Sora's obsessed with letters right now and she loves helping me read the little words on the signs.

 Exploring the wet sand near the pond. There were a lot of great animal tracks and empty snail shells.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends and family! We hope you have as much to be thankful for as we do!
