Where I stayed
After the morning ride was lunch and after lunch Kelly and Julie got here - YAY!!!! Kelly said Julie was so exicited she was coming right out of her skin. When they turned off onto the mile-long road, which was not paved, Julie was like, 'Kelly, why are you going so slow!."
They got checked in and had about five minutes to spare before the afternoon ride. Grandma Lucy has decided to sit the rides out so her knees function for the 2nd half of this trip
After horses, we settled in and then swam - the pool and outside air was much warmer. We played a rousing game of Marco Polo and Colors with some of the kids that are here. There are tons of kids now - a good range to match our girls. Julie has made friends with a girl named Allie and told some ghost stories with a boy named Carter! He is a really sweet kid b/c before the rest of our crew got here, Carter was one of the kids to help Lucy do stuff. Lucy has been hanging with Evelyn and Cameron. So far the other families have been really great.
We had BBQ outside last night for dinner - corn, ribs, sausage and brisket. YUMMMMM.
This place is very different that i had imagined and than i had experienced at the Mayan. It reminds Kelly and I of the Landa Resort before the Schlitterbahn. I found out yesterday that this has been an operating dude ranch for 60 years and an operating ranch for 100+ years.
There was a story of a lady who has been coming for 60 years - and she has this album where she has pictures from all the years - from the time she was a little tot until she was in her 80's and i wish i could see the album - i mean what a lifetime of changes there must have been here.
Well - i am going to try my hand at uploading some pictures - let us know if you're reading this.
