by on Nov.27, 2016, under Family

This was the first Thanks­giv­ing cel­e­brat­ed at the Chechessee cot­tage by our fam­i­ly and it was a great one. Jen­nifer, Mike and Alexan­dra arrived late after­noon on Wednes­day and Hei­di, Gary, Brenn, Caitlin and Kin­sey on Thurs­day morn­ing. Gary and Brenn launched their boat and caught a bunch of sea trout, the rest played games, watched foot­ball and enjoyed each oth­ers com­pa­ny. Joyce, Jen and Hei­di were at work in the kitchen prepar­ing the din­ner. We all sat down and gave thanks for our many bless­ings then enjoyed an incred­i­ble feast. After din­ner more games and foot­ball plus pump­kin pie to top off a won­der­ful day.

Fri­day was filled with activ­i­ties for every­one, more fish­ing for Gary and Brenn, then they joined Alexan­dra and Caitlin in a fish­ing tour­na­ment. At the same time Hei­di and Kin­sey par­tic­i­pat­ed in a 5K fun run. Gil worked out and played pho­tog­ra­ph­er, then after lunch watched foot­ball, Ohio State vs Michi­gan, what a game. There was a young per­sons fun night at Spring Island and the adults had din­ner a Chechessee Creek Club. Sat­ur­day there were more activ­i­ties at Spring Island with the own­ers mar­ket, var­i­ous kids activ­i­ties such as face paint­ing, bar­be­cue lunch, a pre­sen­ta­tion of rap­tors by a vis­it­ing nat­u­ral­ist, as well as a dog show. Alexan­dra’s dog, Autum­n’s broth­er was in the show so he got lots of cheers from us.  Again, it was a per­fect fall day and every­one had a great time.

Jen­nifer, Mike and Alexan­dra left for Fort Laud­erdale Sat­ur­day evening to beat the traf­fic and the rest of us enjoyed a  fresh caught sea trout fish fry at the cot­tage then watched a lit­tle more foot­ball. Sun­day morn­ing we watched anoth­er great sun­rise over the Chechessee riv­er, had break­fast then reluc­tant­ly left to go home. This was tru­ly one of the best Thanks­giv­ing ever at a very spe­cial place for our family.
