This little slice of heaven

My aunt texted me as I was making supper Monday night.."its a beautiful night, anyone want to go for a ride on the rims?"

My first thoughts were no it's dinner time, I have to work tomorrow, I have a mess to clean up, but then the words "on the rims" kept getting to me. So I said yes, the kids said yes and we hurried through dinner to get our horses saddled up.

We met up with my brother and his daughter along the way and up, up, up we went. My daughter was worried the road up to the rims would be too scary for her, but she did great and was ecstatic with the views once we got to the top. You will see why in a minute.

The views are out of this world.  This has always been one of my favorite places on the ranch and I love that my kids found it just as stunning as I always have.  To me its always like a glimpse into heaven.

This is one of my favorite places to run too. Horseback or on foot it's good for the soul up here.

and I think it gives a different perspective on the ranch and the places we explore down below.

I really love this place.
My aunt took this picture of my brother taking a picture of the kids and I while I was looking at a picture I had taken. It amused me.
I love this picture my aunt got of the kids and I all taking in the view.

I didn't get into bed until well past my normal bedtime, but it was worth it. The dishes were still there when I got home the next day from work but I have to admit I didn't care.  Time with my kids on horseback in this little slice of heaven is always worth it.
