O, Give Me a Home ...

... Where the Buffalo Roam ....

Oh, wait, that is a Llama ... and a knitter .... hee hee! We just returned from a weekend at The Tuscarora Bison Farm. What a wonderful time we had! Joan and Mark are wonderful hosts, and their family farm is lovely. They have converted the summer kitchen into a guest house, and we took TRHM's younger son, Daniel, and my nephew, Tommy with us. The weather could not have been better, and everyone had a wonderful time. Especially me, because I got to knit on my socks, and win at cribbage :)

On Saturday, we went to Reptile Land where they have the most wonderful soft and squishy yarns. Oh, wait, no, that is where they have the lizards and snakes, ewwww!! It would have been much more fun if they had soft and squishy yarn ... Here, the boys are feeding turtles. They had a great time, and got to pet a baby alligator and a huge snake.

Saturday night, we had a secret treat planned for them - we went to the Drive In!! Yep, an honest to goodness kids-in-pajamas-on-the-playground drive-in movie theater. We saw Surf's Up and Rise of the Silver Surfer. They thought it was very cool.

Sunday was pack-up and go home day. We drove north to Penn's Cave for a picnic lunch and cave exploring. It was a lot of fun.

Great reading about Clyde Peeling's Reptiland. We used to drive by there on the way to my in-laws. My husband always wanted to stop and I always resisted. Finally, one day I called his bluff and we stopped.
DH is also a great lover of caves and we must stop at every one we pass on our travels. After a while they've all started to look pretty much look the same to me but he enjoys each and every one.
The Bison Farm looks like a great place. Thanks for writing about it.

Drive-in movies? How fun. I remember them from a kid, wearing pajamas in the car and all. Then, as a teen, with friends...well... ;-)
Your weekend sounded fun!
