The Ranch

We love to go the “Ranch”. It is the family home of my husband’s father. It is all about the grandkids when we all go out there.

We don’t have to worry about traffic, being too loud, or watching the kids like hawks now that they are getting older, and a slew of other things. There is always a good meal and plenty to do, not mention time to take a nap (well for some of us – never me ;p)

We did make pillows for the new playhouse, the kids loved the activity and were so excited to see them put together. We didn’t get to all of the activities I had brought because of time. Swimming in the cattle tank was more important, as was wagon rides, swinging, and playing in the playhouse.

I snapped a few photos of our days there.

Typical scenery the entire way out there!

We saw a lot of trains!

Early morning skies


Some of Mimi’s garden

The infamous skulls in the trees- I think they were/are cows

“My swing” as Z likes to call it, even though it is for everyone

“The kid bowl” as it was nicknamed this week – like a dog bowl but for the kids!

Remembering Porter – the beloved, dedicated, ever so loving, black lab who passed this year after 11 years

We still have Chip – he adopted us all

This wagon is almost on its last leg

This bike might be a little too big – Thanks for sharing Campbell!

Cows drink out of here! YUCK!

The pillow project – looks much for neon than they really are. Lots of fun!

Overall, the two days were two well spent! Cannot wait for the next weekend out there!
