Over the River and Thru the Woods...

Thursday, November 27, 2008

Today, we crossed the Mississippi River and drove through the Ozarks to reach Trout Lodge in Potosi, MO, our family's traditional Thanksgiving hideout. Although we don't live much farther away than in St Louis, we had to snake through the backroads to get here, so it seemed to take twice as long!

We've been coming to Trout Lodge for Thanksgiving (and also Memorial Day weekend) ever since Louie was born. We eat the same foods and enjoy the same activities, but because we only come here twice a year, it's always exciting.

Today was pretty low key--pack, drive, and relax. The girls had their faces painted and played. We're resting up for the big day tomorrow.

Here are the girls modeling their face art. Doodle has a seahorse, CeCee a full butterfly face, and Louie has a dolphin.

I love the painted faces! I think CeCee's is my favorite. I hope the rest of your stay at Trout Lodge was fun. Happy Thanksgiving!

What kind of dolphin did they paint on Louie's face...I can't tell from the picture...not that I would know the difference even if I could see it more clearly... ;)

@Wildflourz: I forgot to ask her what kind it was. She would probably have said it's a spinner dolphin, as that's her favorite (although she also loves the Pacific white-sided dolphin because we saw them at the Shedd last year). I would call it an Angelina dolphin, because it had very puffy lips :-)
