Last weekend I took a brief break from beautiful Colorado to return home to Ohio for my cousin’s wedding/family reunion. Now that we’re all growing up it’s hard to get everyone in my giant family together at once and it was great to see them all again. My visit was very, very short so we had to pack as much fun into one weekend as possible. Easy to do when you have your wedding on a Boy Scout campground!
My cousins up in northwestern Ohio have been dedicated scouts for years, so much that now my eldest cousin lives and works on the campgrounds. They opened the grounds for our use the day of the wedding and we took advantage of all the activities.
Easily our favorite activity of the day were the shooting ranges. The camp staff let us try out the rifle range and the shotgun range, with skeet shooting.
After the gun range, we got to play in the lake. Ziplines, boats, a giant inflatable ‘iceburg’ and the Blob. Boy scouts get to have all the fun.
The highlight of the lake was definitely the Blob. We all hoped the Blob would have worked as well as it did in the movie Heavyweights, but I guess we needed more fat kids or slo-mo cameras.
And while we’re on the subject, a message from Ben Stiller:
Oh right, back to the wedding.
And that’s how we roll in Ohio.
