In keeping with our Tour of Camps tradition, the extended Frank family visited a new camp this year for Thanksgiving. We stayed from Wednesday until Saturday, and it was a lovely place! Right here in North Carolina (we loved our short drive), the camp is called Hickory Cove and it's right on a lake.
This was the view from my bed each morning:
One of the best features of the camp was the nice big kitchen. It definitely was useful for preparing the big Thanksgiving dinner:
Besides cooking and eating, we also got to do crafts, play a Not-So-Newleywed Game, hike, canoe, play football and soccer, and hang out together.
And we had a little early Christmas time, too...
(In the picture above, Nate is being goofy, Colsen insisted on being cross-eyed, and Andrew was sleeping -- it's been a hard year at the Academy.)
It is fun to see all the cousins together.... college students, high school student, middle school student, elementary school students, and preschoolers. Next time we all gather one of those cousins will be getting married! The family continues to grow.... another thing to be thankful for.
