Cattle Ranch


My parents' friends invited our family to spend time at their ranch on Saturday. My mom treated us to one of her yummy soup lunches and then we put on our mud boots and drove out to Utah lake. We loaded onto a hay trailer and a tractor pulled us out to the fields. The hundreds of cattle immediately started running after us and eating the bales of hay that we were sitting on! It was pretty wild.



After feeding and chasing the cattle, we were introduced to calf #571 who was born that very morning.
Back at the cabin, they served us hot chocolate and cookies and sent us home with some fresh eggs. My kids loved every minute of it and didn't want to leave. The ranch owners invited us to come back in the spring - we'll look forward to it!

That looks so great! My kids would have loved that too. So, are you going to get your own chicken coop now?

How fun! The last pictures rekindled my desire for chickens. Can you imagine fresh eggs every day? Lovely!

I think you are the perfect family to take part in this little ride out to the ranch. You are the most absorbent people when it comes to nature.
