We tried to go to Indiana Dunes National Park. It would have been our 13th park in a little over a month, but it wasn’t meant to be. We were headed through the area on a Saturday with the camper. We made it to the visitor center and looked over some of the displays, but we really wanted to see the dunes. Well it was so busy on this Saturday that there was nowhere to park near the dune area. So we decided to visit this park another time. We did make our way to Bear Cave Thousand Trails park. This is a pretty basic park, but the neighbors were nice. While we were there we did have a chance to spend an afternoon on a local Lake Michigan beach. There were lots of boaters and the water was calm.
On our way through Sandusky, Ohio we decided to stop and look at a boat for sale. We parked at a local Walmart and headed to the marina. Due to a mix up the broker was not able to get us in to see the boat we had planned to. We decided to just walk around the marina before we headed back to Walmart. We walked past a boat like the one we were planning to see the next day. The owner was sitting outside so Marc asked him about his boat. Well one thing lead to another and he and Marc found out they are in the same line of business and they hit it off right away. He and his wife invited us to move out camper to the parking lot at the marina. We spent a wonderful sunset with him, his wife and her daughter. The next day we all had lunch together. It just makes me smile to think of them. Things seem to work out like they are meant to be even if its not they way we plan them. We never were able to see the boat, but we did make some great friends.
We then made our way to the Kenisee Lake Thousand Trails. This campground was beautiful! We even borrowed at row boat and caught a few bass in the lake. While we were there we went to a beach at Lake Erie. This lake had a lot more waves than Lake Michigan. Cali and Marcus had a great afternoon in the warm water.
We met the Ragers while we were in the Florida Keys this past winter. They sell items that my friend Lillian and I sew at their farm stand. We were passing through Indiana, near their farm and they invited us to stop by and spend the night. When we arrived the Manns and Ragers were out side to greet us. We played many games of tag and jumped on the trampoline. We played in the tree house and gathered the eggs. Then we had a delicious dinner outside. Soon it was time for bed. The next morning we got up and were ready to have more fun. We left that afternoon. Marcus and I where pleased that we got to go to the Rager’s farm. We are still enjoying all of the yummy meat we bought from the farm.
For our birthday Mom and Dad took us to Mt. Olympus water and theme park. We arrived in the Wisconsin Dells the day before our birthday. As soon as we got settled in we went to the park. We went on a couple go-karts courses first, until we got hot. Marcus and I where happy because we were tall enough to drive them. We did two, Poseidon’s under-water go-kart track and another one. Then we walked over to the water park. Marcus and I had the best time going down almost all the slides in the upper water park. Then we went to the indoor water park. That was our favorite place to ride water slides. It was a nice day out so everyone was at the outdoor water park and we didn’t have to wait in many lines. My favorite slide was the Dimondback. It was a completely enclosed water slide. At every corner you got swished up on to the sides. Marcus and I were so tired by the end we didn’t go back after dinner.
We went to bed and the next morning we got up and it was July 23, our birthday!! We were officially 11. After a delicious breakfast of pacos, Which are pancakes with all kinds of different filling in them, like sprinkles and marshmallows. We went to the Wizard Quest the morning of our birthday. You go on a scavenger hunt to free four wizards. We were able to free two of the wizards. It was enthralling.
We each had our own type of dessert. Dad and I made Key Lime pudding. It is Key Lime pie without the crust. It was yummy. Marcus made s’more pie. It was pretty good too.
We went back to Mount Olympus and waited in line to go on some go-karts. After lunch we went back ready to have some fun at the water park. We started at the indoor water park and made our way to the outdoor water park. Then we noticed the line for the racers slides was really short. After we climbed up to the race platform, we were gasping for breath. We got up to the slide and laid on our mats. The life guard blew his whistle and we were off. Well everybody else was off. I got stuck at the top and had to push myself. We went back up and tried again. I got stuck again. Then we went again. This time I managed to push of and beat everybody else. We went on a total of 5 times. We went home and had dinner. Marcus and I watched TV and then went off to bed.
Next morning we were ready to go back. We finished going on all of the go-kart tracks and then went back to the water park. At four o’clock we packed up and drove 2 hours to a Cabella’s parking lot for the night. I had a great 3 days at Mt. Olympus water and theme park.
