Great weather and Christmas Shopping

December 1...65 degrees.  Just gorgeous outside. 

When we left home it was all overcast, the sun trying to peek out.  We drove to Madison, IN.  We stopped at Versailles State Park, IN, walked up the steps at the dam.  Really worked those thigh muscles.  We walked a little around the dam, then drove around to see what else there was. 

Then we headed to Clifty Falls State Park, IN.  By now the sun was shining and it was just beautiful out.  We walked a rugged trail, which afterwards I was reading the pamphlet, almost all the trails at this park are rugged.  We had a really great time.  The falls were just trickles of water this time.   We have seen them with rushing water before. 

After hiking, we drove to Madison, IN for lunch.  We walked around downtown, stopping in some of the shops.  We decided to eat at Hinkle's Sandwich Shop.  They have been in business since 1933. Everything was delicious. 

We then drove down to Clarksville, IN to do a little Christmas shopping at Bass Pro Shop.  That store is amazing.  All kinds of displays, they even have a shooting arcade set up in the wild.  A great place to take the kids for an adventure. We were not able to find what we went there for, but did find something else at a good price. One present done, and a long drive home.  We were exhausted.

On Sunday, the weather was not so great.  Woke up to rain.  It was rainy and overcast all day, so we took this day to do all our running around.  I couldn't tell how many stores we went to looking for that just perfect gift.  Ended up coming home and ordering it online, hoping when these items arrive, they will not be broken.  We were more exhausted from all this running around than we did the day before.  We are officially done shopping.  I still have the stocking stuffers I need to get done.

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!
