We interrupt our regular blog story today for a Summer Adventure With The Littles. We had planned a cave adventure to one of our favorite local caves, Penn's Cave and Wildlife Park. After all of the dry weather we had been experiencing, of course, we woke up to rain. In spite of that, it turned out to be the best day possible for our adventure. Cloudy and cool, the day ended up rain-free during our fun.
We met our farm helper Anna, and her hubby and two girls at the park and spent the day with them.
Next we toured the cave by boat. It's 150 feet underground. Penn's Cave has been a tourist destination for over one hundred years. Amazingly, in that amount of time, the stalactites and mineral formations have grown about an inch from the constant drip, drip of water. Each of the kids hoped that they would be dripped on... and be the recipient of what's known as a "cave kiss."
We plan more of the same for part of today... until the Littles head for home in the afternoon.
