Day at the ranch

We spent the day at Blake's mom and step-dad Wiley's new ranch land in London, Texas. About 20 miles NE of Junction. It was SUCH a pretty day out. The sun was shining and there was a cool breeze. It was perfect. It was a nice little day trip get-away and we had a lot of fun. Here are some photos of our day...


I love those pretty purple flowers...

Took this on the ride around the property...the camera can never pick up the depth and the beautiful surroundings




This old house is going to be renovated by my in-laws. It is really nice inside. Three bedroom, a super nice kitchen. The builder was a carpenter so the cabinents and countertop is still in excellent condition. There are two pull out bin cabinents they used to keep potatoes and onions and other farm goodies in. The floors are in good shape and I am mad I didn't get any pictures of the cool old house. In the back room there were curtains made from old feed sacks still hanging on the windows.


I love this old green color


Blake's nephew Colden. "It's been a hard day at the ranch!" When we drove up he was busy working away shoveling up debris by one of the old barns.






That is a sliding window...well, it was.










This is Wiley's dog Frosty. He was in and out of the horse trough all day. :)





Haha! The boys found a mechete knife in one of the sheds and hacked away at the huge prickley pear near us. I wanted to give it a hand too.

Frosty in the horse trough. Keepin' cool.

I love stopping at historical markers in the middle of no where! Normally we never stop but today was a treat because we stopped at two of them!


This is Teacup Mountain


Beautiful Texas
