Highlight of our trip was Kelsey's 20th birthday. However, her car broke down on the way to IN and wasted her whole afternoon. But we cheered it up with a birthday cake and her favorite wish a new camera. Mike, Kelsey and Jason went horseback riding one afternoon. Darlene relaxed on the beach. We also rode on the 2 mile paved bike trail through the park. Our last evening the group went on a hayride which rode through the campground streets as we waved to all the campers. Buddy was entered into the best dog costume and won first prize. We dressed him as "Beach Buddy" as you will see in the picture. He won a birthday party for 7 of his friends; but because we were leaving the area the next day, we asked if he could have a bath and a nail trim instead. They granted the exchange and also provided him with a goody back of treats, bones, a ball and homemade dog biscuits. That was very kind of them. The place was called Pawsitively Paradise Pet Resort in Angola, IN. It was great for them to even donate the winning prizes for the dog contest in the campground.
It was sad to see all our friends depart back to home in Michigan and Kelsey to head back to campus. We were left on our own to head to Potato Creek State Park in North Liberty, IN. Enjoy the pictures!!!!
