We began gathering our supplies: blanket, water bottles, hiking backpack, camera and of course, yummy picnic goodies.
Fresh garden tomatoes and cucumbers with dill.... I was in HEAVEN! And juicy sweet watermelon for dessert.
We watched other people try to get water out of the pump, but Steve was the only one who was successful. Something about momentum... I just enjoyed the gun show while Steve helped the girls wash up the dishes at the water pump.
Bella was a good little princess and stayed right on our blanket until we went hiking.We stopped in Battle Lake to find one more cache and also to treat ourselves to ice cream at Ganny's Panties. As we were driving back to Fergus Falls, Steve told Kippy, "Enough with the repetition!" because she was annoying him by repeating the same thing over and over. Kippy replied, "I'm in a good mood. Don't ruin it." That cracked me up. Kippy was on a high that her great idea of a picnic at the Peak worked out so well and nothing was going to dampen her good mood.
Steve was studying the caches that I had printed out. We were looking for two geocaches at the Peak. One was a virtual cache where we just had to find the answers to three questions, which meant the kids had to make sure to read all the signage.
As we were getting ready to leave Inspiration Peak, Kippy exclaimed, "This is the best Saturday ever!"
