Thanksgiving at the Lodge – 2014

Every year for Thanksgiving my family on my Mom’s side gets together in a lodge at Lake Sallateeska Baptist Camp in Pinckneyville, Illinois. We have Thanksgiving lunch, play football, canoe, hike, play catchphrase and apples to apples, tell stories, stuff our faces, dress up in costumes, go shopping at the local antique stores, have a bonfire and roast hotdogs, and we wrap it all up by having a marshmallow fight. This year it was a bit too cold and muddy to do a few of those things, but it was so fun nonetheless. And we had a surprise appearance from my cousin Matthew and Aunt Liz! Here are a few shots around the camp, of my cousin and fellow explorer Maddie, and of this year’s theme: Ugly Prom. Also, as of last year I decided to start making a video of each Thanksgiving, I hope you enjoy!
