We finally got to take a trip out to the ranch in February. My stars, it was fun for all! The kids and I had a blast and that was great timing since we had to put our old cat down the night before. To be able to go outdoors and have some fun was a terrific distraction. Duncan had a great time! He made a new boyfriend (having a gay dog is ... different). He chased a baby cow (and traumatized it, poor Runty). The kids and I played and played all day! I took about 200 pictures that I am just now sorting through.
First, met the ranch dogs.
Duncan, not a ranch dog - but I think he's considering changing professions.
And we met Runty, the baby cow.
They had a swing in the yard.
While Gabriel was swinging, Ethan asked me to take his picture like this. At first, I thought it was silly but whatever, this is digital and I can just delete it. But now I like it. The kid is on to something!
Not to be outdone by his little brother, Gabriel did some posing for me while Ethan was swinging.
