We started out our Independence Day celebration with a daybreak visit to the bison and elk conservation area. We saw a ton of bison...no elk though. Guess that is for another time.
This guy was so close to the car I could have stuck my hand out the window and touched him! The kids were SUPER excited about this close examination opportunity.
After breakfast we headed out to the Mossy Creek area of Kentucky Lake and all went for a swim together, even Lottie. We had such a great time...although, see that gravel in the parking lot, that went all the way into the lake bottom, so tough on tender feet.
Everyone got good and tired. We went back to our campsite and had lunch and played games and then took a little drive into town again to give everyone a little relief from the heat. All in all, it was a fantastic family weekend.
