Memorial Day Camping
Sunday after church, we packed our sleeping bags, sausage and eggs, and headed south.
We camped at the ranch on Sunday night. Thank you Emiko, April, and Judd, who are not pictured but cooked the hamburgers and handled the wild children!
Emmitt and his boy cousins giggled far into the night in their little dome tent. The rest of us all snuggled in with Kendal and Kelsey sharing a cot. Kenna wasn't so impressed with the sleeping arrangements.
My kids love going to the ranch, and they love playing with their cousins.
Monday afternoon we went fishing. All Matt did was fix poles all afternoon.
Kelsey and Kenna, soaked in the sun while waiting for magic with the powerbait.
Kendal was a casting fool with her little Barbie fishing pole. That is all she wanted to do, so that is about all she did. Over and over!
I don't know how many times Kelsey cast her line into this tree, but I can think of 4 times off the top of my head. She was an expert at getting it out - EVERY TIME!
Emmitt lost interest in the fishing and just wanted to eat snacks and play with the sticks he found that magically turned into swords.
Kenna and I just took in the scenery and enjoyed the day.
Matt loves the ranch. He loves his black cows that graze at the ranch. He loves the water he changes at the ranch. He loves to spend time working at the ranch. The ranch is in him. It always will be, and I am glad we get to share it with him once in awhile.
