My grandpa's ranch. A huge part of my childhood. :) And this weekend, a large group of us "young kids" are heading up there to stay for four days.
When I was really young, we used to go up there a lot.
|the house and wood shed|
|the barn. where we would swing on the "huge" rope swing, play house, and "collect" golf balls for eggs|
|waiting to continue the ride. Colten, LaKaysha, me, and Emily.|
|playing in the dust. me and Lando.|
|on the tramp. :) me - with my beautiful hair ;)|
I have such great memories of this place. :) Swimming in the river, riding four-wheelers, jumping on the tramp, watching old Disney Classics, sleeping outside, getting dirty - and I mean DIRTY, cleaning the "play house" in the barn - which is just a messing room full of old dishes ;), crawling into the old, empty chicken coop to gathering the golf balls - as if laying on our belly's saves us from the snakes. haha!
'Course, not all my memories are good, but, hey, who wants to think about that? ;P
|me -all dressed up as a "prairie girl" and eating my corn :)|
|Grandpa - chattin' with a neighbor|
|the swing by the basement door- under the porch|
|my adorable little sister - walking back from the barn|
|me and my brother - this was the trip I learned to drive a four-wheeler :D|
|me and Emily, sledding. this was taken when we went up there for New Years, the year my grandma died. I think this is the only time I've been up there in the snow|
I can't wait to get on a four-wheeler and just GO! :D Like my cousin, Colten, is doing in the above picture. :)
I plan to sleep under the stars this trip! Won't that be fun!? On the porch - up away from the snakes, but also out away from the bugs ;P
Let's go and make some more memories, gang! ;P
