Camping at Hocking Hills

I spent the last five days or so camping at Hocking Hills State Park/Forest with two people who are very important to me. Unfortunately, I am sitting in an internet cafe that is going to close soon, so I dont have much time for lengthy description.I'll give you the highlights...
1 hour horseback riding in the forest with rambunctious horses
1 ten day old horse that walked right up and let us pet it
1 sloppy apple eaten out of my hand by a horse named Maggie (Measle)

2 beautiful hikes down to old man's cave
1 crazy buzzing insect chasing us
100's of great conversations
3 camp fires
1 bag of shmellows
6 smores
3 nights of card playing and yahtzee
1 hungry deer who let us walk within 10 feet of it
1 pesky raccoon that needed chasing away
10 year old who learned to play rummy and to shuffle using the bridge
1 drink of pop squirted out of the mouth through outrageous laughter
1 night falling asleep under the stars while counting meteors (amazing)
1 hour of playing keepaway in the pool with the golden orb of atlantis (did i miss any adjectives?)
1 major back smack while falling into the river from a tree
7 miles down the hocking river in a canoe
3 rope swings
1 tipped canoe and some stinky mud
1 really interesting late night shower
3 people with sore (ab) muscles from rowing, swimming, and carrying on
10 ziplines through the Hocking Hills trees
3 sunny days
1 rainy day and some thunder
1000's of smiles and lots of laughs
10 or so pictures taken at arm length
1 broken lantern (not ours)
2 really great views of the milky way and many conversations about celestial objects
1 spectacular radio station
It all adds up to a totally plazitory 4 days.
