When we pulled into Scott City my parents were waiting for us at the Methodist Church. Before we saw the church we heard the bells, and you know what that means! SMOOCHIES! Anyway, the preacher and some other folks were waiting there to take us to lunch! How nice! We were starving! After our yummy meal we went back to the church to collect Simon and our bikes and to snap a couple photos.
After we spoke to the editor of the local newspaper (thanks Thelma!) we headed out to the Scott Lake State Park where my parents had been camping since last Wednesday. This park is considered, An Oasis in the Prairie. Unlike the other parts of Kansas we've been seeing, there are actually hills and trees and stuff here.
People got pretty excited about this storm. It was INTENSE, and we were glad we weren't in our tent! Of course, I never imagined for one second that I would be spending Father's Day in a Men's room! Those signs on the doors didn't mean much when this storm was peaking. People just wanted to stay safe together, us included. We won't soon forget this Father's Day!!
