4th of July we were lucky enough to have a group of my family up to the ranch! My parents, my Uncle John and Aunt Kim and their three awesome kids and Jen and Zach and their two sweet girls. Everybody pitched in for ranch chores and making lots of good food. We went out to the wet hay fields Friday night for some firework action from the back of a pick up, swam in the river, BBQed and explored the ranch. It was so great to show my family what "ranch life" is like - they all approved and agreed it's pretty sweet!!
Jannie's first trip to the ranch and she jumps right in with the pigs and girls ;)
My Dad treated us to a few rounds of fireworks from the volunteer fire department stand.
Emmy is back and staying for 10 days. Woohoo!!
Sweet cousin Ella with hr biggest fans - the girls in matching outfits Jannie got at the Gap outlet on the way up.
The girls were so excited to show the cousins the river. Only on a serious CA drought it's mostly a river bed! Come on rain.
Sweet girls in the teepee decked out for the 4th! The girls decided Lola and Amelie are their honorary sisters ;)
Heff and his flock - they beg very time the ATV starts up, especially Tiny - "wif you dada!!"
