We loaded up the camper for our first camping trip of the season this past weekend. We spent Saturday night through Monday afternoon at Ouabache (pronounced Wabash) State Park near Bluffton, Indiana.
They have a herd of bison in the park. The girls were pulling grass and feeding them. They followed us all the way from the back of their pen to the front waiting for more grass. They sure are awkward, nasty creatures. We went to the library yesterday to get some books about bison/buffaloes...good subject for a school report.
Meagan & I cooked pancakes and bacon on our portable gas grill. We decided not to take firewood on this trip since we were going to be gone for such a short time. I missed it though as soon as we got there and I smelled someone's fire. It's just not the same to go camping without a fire and s'mores. Next time!
Laura & Kara enjoyed a game of checkers while we were cooking our breakfast supper. We like to do breakfast food at supper time every once in a while.
On Monday morning, we went bowling in Bluffton. We used bumper guards so our balls would stay out of the gutters. Ha!! Laura managed to hit the end of the bumper so hard that she knocked it over. Erin fell down after she let go of her ball and slid down the lane with it a little ways. Heather sent her ball rolling backwards into the spectators. Nanna has the slowest slow ball I've ever seen. It seemed like it took 5 minutes for her ball to make it to the pins. I did so well that Nanna was the only one with a score lower than mine. Lowest score wins, right? We were just glad we were the only ones in the bowling alley that morning!! I'm sure that man that ran the bowling alley just shook his head when we left there!! That's okay. We had a good time!
