Oleo Ranch 2008

We just got back from our annual trip to the Oleo Ranch in Colorado. The kiddos did great on the LONG car trip there. Especially considering that we JUST got back from our long car trip to North Carolina :)

I, of course, was sick for the first two days of the trip with some virus. So Ryan took the kids to the lakes to fish, played games, and read them stories.

Little Miss caught this fish at the ponds on the property and Little Man showed off this fish that he caught!

The kids and Dad had a great time fishing. Little Man even fell in the lake one of the days!

As usual we spent the days relaxing, reading, doing crafts, or playing games with the kids in the cabins. We also fished, did a bit of hiking, went into town (Lake City and Creede) to shop, and listened to Denver play the guitar. The kids got to play the spoons while Uncle Denver played guitar. And Uncle Denver and Grandpa even made up a fabulous song about our families and our week at the Oleo.

The highlight of the trip for the kids was when we went down to visit Ronnie, the ranch manager and his wife Barbara. They let Little Miss ride their horse, Tucker. She LOVED it! Little Man also took a turn. Then Ronnie took each of the kids for a ride in his backhoe. Little Man was so excited :) He even let them raise and lower the bucket!

It really was a wonderful vacation this year!
