Last weekend my wife had her family reunion in Cle Elum, Washington at the Flying Horseshoe Ranch. We stayed in old-fashioned bunk houses at night, ate breakfast lunch and dinner in a chow-hall, and the kids got to get up on horses for the first time.
Here’s Reece having a good time on Rosie, the horse,
and then Lorelai getting her turn on Rosie as well.
They both stayed within the arena while riding since they aren’t yet seven years old. Older riders got to do a two hour trip up into the hills. Lisa and I opted out of that adventure, as I didn’t figure I’d make it back alive (based on my health history), and Lisa is allergic to horses.
Part of the family got to stay up in a log cabin a little way away from the ranch. The views up there were pretty amazing, though my picture taking prowess with my cell phone cannot possibly do it justice.
Overall, it was a pretty great weekend, and a nice trip away from home, even if it was only for 48 hours or so.
