We had a bad week, well Chris did, and he wanted out of town, so we decided to hit up a state Chris hasn’t ever been to….. Idaho! My Aunt and Uncle bought a small ranch in an itty bitty town about 2 years ago and we hadn’t seen them since Gav’s blessing. We were also told about a puppy that my aunt acquired a couple weeks back that needed a home…. so we decided to head on up to meet the famous “Mr. Nuff”
Mr. Nuff is the cutest, most mellow, sweet little lab puppy ever!!! He and Gav hit it off like you cannot believe!!! By the end of the day Gav was saying “NuUUF” whenever he wanted to see the cute little brown ball of fluff! (Yes, he is a consideration for a new addition to our family…. we’ll see!)
When we first got to the ranch, the horses were out and all ready for us to go, so we immediately hopped right on! Luckily, they had a horse that could handle many different riders and didn’t mind having someone who didn’t know what they were doing on him. Then came the really fun part!
Gav got to feed a baby cow!!! They had 7 cute little calves on the ranch and Gav got to help feed them a snack and dinner! He was SOOOO excited!
Gav also got to gather the chicken eggs, peruse the local “store”, see Oma’s house and even more dogs, and get all sorts of dirty! He learned how to say “squishy”, “tractor”, “baby cow”, “feed baby cow”, “chick”, “nuff” and a “horse.” (Did I mention that Gav’s no talking streak has ended… BIG TIME!!!???) It was a FABULOUS day! We really enjoyed a simpler day, and will, if they want us to, probably go back every few weeks, help out with projects (since my poor Uncle Chicky is in a house full of womenfolk) and more importantly, keep in touch with family! We’ve missed them!
While out there we took pictures of my cousin, Bailee.
She’s our little rodeo queen!
Yeah, those were all taken at their ranch… LOVE IT!
