This summer has been SO busy. We moved and we bought a dental practice. Sometimes this summer it has felt like 80% of conversations have been about dentistry. Somehow the summer flew by. I had so many things I wanted to do with the kids that never happened. We decided we needed to have some kind of family adventure before the summer ended.
We looked at lots of different options. Some were too expensive, some too far away. Some too stressful with a baby etc.
We settled on staying two nights at a horse ranch. The kids LOVE horses and dream of being cowboys. We left Thursday afternoon and arrived in time to get settled in our tiny cabin.
Then we spent the evening running around the grassy field.
He had to saddle the horse himself and they helped him know how to lead the horse and turn it around. It was VERY hands on and he learned SO much. I might have to see if I can find him lessons somewhere.
Then we snuck into town for some lunch. Titus was a total stinker (in every sense of the word). He kept standing up and reaching for things. Then he pooped and we didn't have diapers or wipes with us. It made for an eventful lunch!
The little girls were much cuter (at least at the moment). They were not spearing dead fish. They were giving each other hugs and holding hands.
It was such a nice little get away. It was not necessarily relaxing but it was a change of pace and it was memorable for the kids. I do think that Tyler and I better take a relaxing vacation one of these days. But for this weekend our horse ranch was perfect.
