Last weekend, Regina and Rodney said they wanted to cook a trashcan turkey so we decided upon yesterday and what glorious day it was! Regina pulled out her extra table so we'd have a place for all the food. She invited Jana and Laurie, a couple of friends from a few sites away.
Rodney put the stake into the ground, added the turkey and surrounded it with charcoal and let the cooking begin.
Hannah made sure the monkeys were hanging just right in the palm tree.
Janna whipped up some garlic Texas toast on the grill.
Regina kept the smudge going all afternoon. Isn't their fire ring neat?
Rodney and Regina also fired up the slush puppy machine with Pina Coladas and Frozen mudslides. YUMMY!!!
Finally, the turkey bell went off!
Regina covered the turkey to let it sit for a bit while we got everything else ready.
Gary was not fishing in a tournament yesterday so he was able to spend the day at camp with us. I love Gary to pieces and am thrilled he has a hobby (fishing) that he enjoys as much as he does. However, I sometimes feel bad that he misses out on some really great times with Hannah and I because he is gone so much. I'm always happy to have him for a family day and it makes it all the more special.
Gary did the turkey carving. We all commented on what a fine job he does. Of course, he got a big head about that. Isn't his shirt cool?
