Franksgiving 2015

This year the Frank clan gathered in Amish country -- Holmes County, Ohio.  As we were driving in, I was pretty sure that "Amish country" was just a nice way of saying, "the last hour of driving will be spent on hilly, curvy roads on which you can go no faster than 30 mph."  But, as it turned out, there were actually a lot of Amish people.  We saw many horses and buggies traveling on the roads, and in a span of 20 minutes counted 27 barns.

We rented a camp property for the 3 days, and it was a beautiful spot.  There were plenty of hills to roam, and our Franksgiving Turkey Trot 5K could be done right on the property.

(...and some football playing...)

 There was also a big slide under a hill that was a big hit:

And, perhaps even more important, the inside space was HUGE.  We all hung out in a big lodge that was big enough for us to all eat in, cook in, AND play corn hole in, play football in, and even scooter in.  All at the same time!

The kitchen was a big blessing.  We could all make pies (NINE total!), side dishes, turkey, etc., all at the same time.

And the guys manned the dishwashing station.

This was the first time that all 25 of us were together in 4 years so it was fun to see everyone!  Of course we had to gather for a big family photo.




We did our annual yankee swap (this year all the gifts started with the letter F), and played a bunch of games.

It was another Fun Franksgiving!
