Sara + Kenny are engaged

Sunday, November 28, 2010

This Thanksgiving was extra special as it gave me the opportunity to return to Giant City for an engagement session with Caleb's step-sister Sara and her fiance, Kenny. We spend a weekend every summer with Caleb's family at the Lodge, eating their famous fried chicken, petting the stuffed buffalo, and hiking through the wood up to the gorgeous sandstone formations that came to be known as Giant City. Because the high that afternoon was 40 degrees, we didn't trek all the way into the most striking spots, but we had more than enough to work with on the hike. Thanks to Sara and Kenny for being willing to risk the cold and to not laugh at the weeble-wobble pregnant lady huffing her way up the trail!

  2. I used to live in Paducah and always wanted to venture up to Giant City (and the So. Ill. wineries!) but never got the chance. There's a very cool bnb called Davies School Inn in Anna, Ill. that's a former elementary school.

    Anyway, lovely pictures. :)
