FOLLOW UP POST FOR “MAKING COWBOYS OUT OF CITY BOYS”
We are having a blast out here in Utah visiting all the family we have. We have mostly been staying in Heber City with my in-laws where they boys get to help Grandpa with the horses, grandma with the gardening, and help with chores around the property. It has been really good for the kids and they have had a lot of fun as well.
They are really working hard on becoming REAL cowboys! First they got their hats so they would look official and now they are working on some cowboy adventures!
I took them to their Great Grandfather’s Ranch in Coalville, Utah this week. He has a beautiful cabin in the mountains surrounded by his 320 acres of hills and pastures. So fun! He taught Casey how to shoot (just a BB gun… he’s only 7yrs old after all).
They used some soda cans as targets and had a great time! Casey never hit his target, but he loved it anyway!
The younger boys didn’t get to learn to shoot, but they did have a blast climbing the big hill next the the cabin, falling in the muddy creek (pronounced crick in these parts) and climbing all over the old tractor.
I got a lot of practice with my camera… my two year old now hides his face the moment he sees me pull out my camera. The little stink! I have to be quick with him!
