Fry Lodge Gives Thanks

Any Thanksgiving that ends with Wip hits is a good Thanksgiving in our book.

Grandma and Grandpa Fry were our guests this year, which made our first Thanksgiving as permanent Lopezians extra special.

Kristine took the lead on the menu and worked tirelessly for two days preparing an amazing meal, which included some traditional favorites from both sides of the family: my mom’s rutabagas, Ruby’s famous carrots, and Kristine’s Uncle Howie’s “don’t push the jello salad” jello salad.

Henry and Ruby created the menus/place cards. Grandpa and I did dishes.

We have lots for which to be thankful this year, not least of which is living in such a special place as Lopez. It was a beautiful day on the island. We woke up to the scene of an otter flopping in and out of our boat, which was pretty exciting. We then spent the day alternating between stoking the fire and flipping over Christmas albums on the turntable. Happy Thanksgiving to all the Fry Lodge Faithful.
