Thanksgiving 2011: Vernon, Oklahoma


This years Thanksgiving holiday took us on a 2 1/2 hour road trip to the country side town of Vernon, Oklahoma.  We were worried about taking a cooked turkey”on the road”” but it did well riding shotgun!

The town of Vernon has a story of it’s own to tell. But this was a time to catch up with old friends. One of my dearest friends grew up here. Her parents still live here and all the grandkids spend any days out of school with their grandparents. This is their chance to explore without much of the cares of city life. Most of the time grandpa has different tasks that have to get done.  Here the boys have returned after a day of cutting up large log that was blocking the creek.

Of course there is always time for some fun. There was a trampoline in the back of the house and boy did the kids put it to good use! They were out there for hours working up an appetite for that Thanksgiving meal!

Even ZeeK, (the pet RACOON!) enjoyed some of the thanksgiving meal. I couldn’t believe that he was so tame.  He had the cutest little hands that would grab a piece of Turkey and take it under the porch to eat.

    • Thank you! It was refreshing to be in the country. It has been years since I was out there because I am such a city girl. The kids love that that can get as dirty as they want (and they did!) Thanks for stopping by.

    • Believe me, I didn’t either, but he acts like he is definitely part of their family. He doesn’t go inside the house because Grandma has asthma but he lives right under their porch. He roams freely and is known to jump on the kids backs for attention when he is being ignored.

    • I love going out there because my son has so much fun out there playing with all the kids. There are horses and car rides…there are no paved roads so all the kids love to ride on the hood of the car. It sounds so dangerous but “only in the country” Thanks for stopping by!
