The Bat Cave

On Saturday, soon after a cleaning-of-the-entire-house led by Dad, we set off for Maquoketa Caves State Park. This was our first adventure here, and we had a great time. We are glad that our neighbors suggested old shoes and clothes. It was sure muddy. We hiked around and peeked into all the caves. At first, the kids were a little bit concerned about 'the dark', but soon were enjoying it all. Next time we go {be ready Grandpa & Grandma} we won't forget our head lamps & flashlights! This is an amazing place that we want to explore more. Sydnee wants to go back and find more snakes. Christian is still talking about it to everyone that will listen. And Ella is up for another trip, since she had the best ride on her Dad's shoulders almost the entire time. Craig and I just like being together as a family... Once we got home and cleaned up, we had a surprise invite to our friends' house for some homemade Mexican food. Who can say no to that? I made a quick batch of cupcakes and we were on our way.
