Don’t Climb on the Cows

neilsville-cowWhy do they make life-size fiberglass animals if they don’t want kids to ride ’em? Now, in our defense, we didn’t see the sign that advised us not to climb on this particular cow in Neillsville, Wisconsin, until after we snapped this photograph.

Over the years I admit I’ve propped my kids on a man-made menagerie. In addition to the Neillsville cow, my son and daughter have ridden a Sinclair dinosaur at a Minnesota truck stop, a Jack-o-lope in Mitchell, South Dakota, and a bucking bronco inside the fort at Wall Drug. And that’s just the start of the list.

Go ahead and blame me for poor choices and bad parenting. I don’t care. My kids had fun, and so did I.
