Gobble Wobble 2016

Nov 19, 2016

Our annual Gobble Wobble was held on November 19, 2016 at the Tom Harkin Trailhead/Rotary Camp on Clear Creek in Coralville. The "Wobble" began at 11:15 am and kids were instructed to shout "Gobble Gobble" when they saw something cool!

They shouted when they saw:
Bending trees
Fallen trees
A tree stump
An "Alphabet Y" shaped tree that was then determined to be an elephant trunk tree

Pine cones
Locust pods

Fire pit
And much more!

After the hike, participants ate hot dogs, veggie burgers and chips, drank hot cocoa,

and roasted marshmallows over the campfire. There were a variety of marshmallows: caramel apple, regular and chocolate swirl. However, we discovered that:

You cannot twirl
A chocolate swirl
Not if you're a squirrel,
Not if you're a turtle,
Not if you're wearing pearls
A marshmallow with a chocolate swirl
Only gets roasted on one side
Because when you attempt the twirl
From the flames the top just hides

We also made a pile of leaves to play, toss and hide in!
