We visited Jason's parents this weekend on the ranch and it was the most glorious visit ever. It was also my very first Spring visit in the 8 years I have known Jason. And I found out that I was missing out!!! Early spring in Fredericksburg, Texas is amazing.
Me: Leo, do you know why we celebrate Easter?
Leo: Yes! First the eggs hide in the grass. Then I run and get them all. And then I open them and eat the TREATS!!
Me: Actually...*attempt at explaining real meaning of Easter*
Leo: *hysterical sobbing*
Including a tour of the ranch. This house was finished May 11, 1916
Jason and I would have loved to go into the two buildings to see what "treasures" were in there. But Grandad said no way. He did point to a cut out in the floor where they hid the moonshine under the floorboards though.
Leo is manning the cattle prod just in case "Fiesty" over there gets a little too hungry
While Elena left a trail of treats for the deer...
...and soaked up the fresh air
I also begged Great Granny for a tour of her Canning Shed.
It is a small shed set under the rainwater tower and it is my new favorite thing in the whole world:
Granny apologized for the condition of her cabinets. I assured her that we pay big money to have our furniture look half as cool as this!!
Look at all that awesome cast-iron cookware!!!! *drool*
We also got a tour of her garden, complete with a handmade sign Great Grandad made just for her
Roman got to play with his two favorite people
We played hard
We got a lesson in trapping
Played in the mud
Played with guns
*do I really need to specify that no children actually played with guns???
Threw large rocks
And spent a whole lotta time with family
A Very Happy Easter season to you from us!!!
