I hit the road about 10:15am, thinking I was leaving myself a little time to get turned around on Indiana's country roads. I settled into the car, audiobook ready for entertainment, a bag of crafty items and cookies by my side, and headed confidently north.
Then I met the cows. I was probably a half mile from my final destination, but I was a bit turned around. I make a right on a road that's not really a road and end up on someone's cow farm. There are, literally, cows roaming around free. Realizing my error, I decide to make a three-point turn and almost get stuck in the mud in front of a herd of annoyed looking bovine.
Determined to follow through on our original plan, we hit a gas station and make our way back to the muddy field to make a craft. Yes, we actually stood on the side of the road in a muddy field to make a craft. And the final product was beautiful...don't you think?!
We finished the outing with a stop at McDonald's. Fun was had by all. Thanks Rachel for being a great sport and meeting me in the middle! So glad the kids and Bekah got to tag along!
And if you've got the time, check out Rachel's version of events over at her blog!
(I just noticed that I use a lot of exclamation points! I should probably work on that!)
