My mom grew up in Montana, & it was always my favourite place to visit as a kid. I love the prairies, horses, & all the fun things to do on my cousins' ranch. My kids feel the same way. Asher & Chancery are city kids, but I try to get them a taste of farm/country life as often as I can!
We stopped to visit my Great Uncle Gordon, the kids said hi, then went right back outside because there were kittens!
We stopped at the cemetery where quite a few of my ancestors are buried. Look at this display of sibling love while the kids stand by their Great Grandparents!
And we found the grave of my Great-Great-Grandparents.
Then it was on to the ranch! The kids were eager to go for a ride on the Quads. My cousin Justin was kind enough to take us through a few fields for a nice ride.
We found this old log cabin, & the kids enjoyed looking around, but decided they did not want to live in it.
We drove up to the radio tower & the kids both wanted to climb it. SInce it was pretty windy, & the tower is over 100 feet tall, I told them they could climb it as long as they would stop where I told them to & go no higher.
I told Asher he had to stop 2 sections below where he is, knowing that he'd go a little higher... He loves to climb!
We had a great time at the ranch & we were sad when it was time to go. We got to spend a little more time with Justin & Uncle Leonard though since they decided to join us for supper!
If you ever want to know how to restore sibling harmony, tell them they can share a milkshake, but only if they agree on one flavour! They chose chocolate, & shared very well!
