My son really wanted to go hiking in what I consider the back part of the ranch and see the house my dad lived in when he was a baby. I had just moved cows there Saturday and was itching to get back in there are explore a little more myself so it worked out perfect.
My sister in law went along also. As the road is pretty rough getting back in to the old house we parked and walked in. The kids were troopers and had so much fun exploring as we went, finding feathers, an old animal trap in a tree, cool rocks, looking for treasures etc, but when we finally came over a hill and saw the house they took off running for it.
The view out on of the living room windows, I could handle that! The trees near the bottom of the picture is where the water came from.

and we found these initials (or is it a brand) carved into a sandstone rock with a date. I can imagine the person who carved them would be happy to know they were found and the kids were super impressed with them
Little cowboy also decided he really wanted to ride his horse. This had me a bit torn as he decided it as I was getting ready for a run. In the end I blew off the run and helped him with his horse. I decided since it was the last day of summer vacation I would rather spend that time with him. He is growing up so fast!
