Our family is attempting to camp every month in 2016. Not sure about the other 11 months but January... CHECK!We went to Van Meter State Park and enjoyed bike riding (the return trip was much faster... this place was hillier than I expected), hiking, and the Native American Museum at the visitors center.
We learned so much! The kids practiced making corn flour, learned about usable parts of the bison, and so much more!
That night it was a little chilly but not to bad for January! Logan and Eric made us a roaring fire to keep warm.
So sorry for the cell phone photos. Guess who lost the camera... again!
This was whole family adventure and the dogs really showed their age this trip. They kept up with us on our hikes and loved every minute but I could tell that they were hurting and needed more rest time.
We enjoyed every meal by the camp fire and why not!?! We had the whole place to ourselves.
What a wonderful January camp out!
