First trip to the ranch!

We had an exciting week this past week! My sister Lindsey came up last Sunday and then my parents drove up on Tuesday and we all played at the ranch for the week. We sure missed Ryan, Carrie and Leah! My mom, Denise, is called "Neesie" and dad is grandad and Parker just loved having them there, so did I!! We had a great time swimming, riding four wheelers, shooting skeet, cooking out and just relaxing. Luke and Meredith (James's brother and wife) and their four kids came out on Friday night and added to our fun for the weekend. Parker loved his first trip out there and I loved all the help that I had! :) I miss all those helping hands now that we're back home! I LOVE summer and there is nothing like being out at the ranch surrounded by family and God's creation!

Arriving at the ranch for the first time with Parker!
