But not to worry, a large group of boys went horseback riding this morning up in the hills above Cody. it was just over a hour's ride and for most of them, that was just about all they wanted.
At the same time the one group of boys was out trail riding, the remaining kids visited the reconstructed Old Trail Town, which is made up of over two dozen authentic buildings brought to this settlement. It's quite an impressive collection including the cabin of Butch Cassidy. The guys also saw the grave site of John Johnston, AKA Jeremiah "Liver-Eaten" Johnson who was reburied on this property several years ago.
Another big activity today was LAUNDRY. So now if you if moms keep noticing your boys wearing the same clothes, it's not because they don't have clean clothes to wear. We do encourage them to change clothes and most comply, but they seem to think wearing the same clothes day after day is the cowboy way. It's hard to argue with their reasoning! Jeff Peisner and I got the laundry done and in the dryers and then the boys came to help finish off the process including sorting their clothes and folding them. I think that might have been a first for some of these boys - another MindStretch Travel Adventures life lesson.
There was also time today for swimming in the motel pool and for a round of miniature golf in the town park. A few groups went into downtown Cody for a little shopping. Our motel is actually in downtown so we can be in the city center in about a five-minutes walk.
So that wraps up another busy day. It was a whole lot of fun.
