A Day of Giant Things

One of The Lope's travel rules is you stop to see anything that is "The World's Largest..." This is part of the story of how I ended up having my photo taken with the world's largest prairie dog today.

We learned that the smaller one was essentially the study for the larger one.

After the prairie dog, we moseyed (however you spell that) on down the road to a giant sculpture of Bill Cody killing a buffalo, hence the name Buffalo Bill Cody. It may have been more artistic than the prairie dog, but I preferred the prairie dog subject matter.

I also ended up watching a rather large - although I wouldn't say giant - rattlesnake shed it's skin.

Needless to say, I've had a full day. Time for bed. I don't think I can handle any more excitement for the day.

We still get grief for taking the kids to the World's Largest Ball of Twine. But they still remember it now, don't they?

So where were all these large things? I don't know as I've ever seen them. I need to go.

We subscribe to that same rule, and always stop to see any "world's largest!" Some of our most memorable family trips so far have involved the world's largest bowling pin, light bulb, and kaleidoscope!

Kim... the ball of twine is one I still haven't been to! I must go!
