The Rock Ranch (WARNING...picture overload)

Today we headed up to the Rock Ranch with my parents, my youngest brother Daniel, and his girlfriend Allie. We had lots of fun doing lots of "country" things. It would have been a lot nicer had the weather been a bit cooler. It was just so dreadfully hot, and some of us ended up getting a bit too much sun.

So, here's what we did:

Granddaddy (my dad) and Caleb on the trolley heading up to the entrance.

My youngest brother Daniel and his girlfriend Allie. He thinks he's such a stud. LOL!

Grandma (my mom), Daniel, and Allie

Brian driving the tractor pedal cart...do you think he's too big for it? This is Brian's new idea of "cardio workout." So, look for a new cart track in the backyard sometime in the future. LOL!

Caleb driving the tractor pedal cart.

Caleb, Allie, Daniel, and Brian posing for a picture.

Allie, Caleb, and Daniel (Caleb had to be pushed up the hill most of the time).

Micah chillin' in the stroller playin' with his butterfly.

Caleb and Micah pose with Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber from Veggie Tales.

Caleb jumping on the HUGE pillow top...we think we'd like one of these in the backyard. Do you know where we might get one? LOL! It'd be much safer than a trampoline...so Santa, you better get to shopping.

Daniel, Brian, and Caleb...the big boys had just as much fun as Caleb did. They even managed to tick off some parents, too, when the kids were falling over due to the "big boys" jumping.

Uncle Daniel holding Caleb while jumping...he's such a great uncle.

Caleb and Allie chillin' in the paddle boat while Brian and Daniel get a cardio workout. All of the family at the cane pole fishing site.

Caleb with his cane pole. He did not have fun doing this. He would much rather fish with a "real" rod and reel. This cane pole fishing was not his "cup of tea." The pole was too heavy, and he's not a very patient little boy. LOL!

Caleb posing for a picture on an old truck with a tree growing through it.

Caleb waiting for his lunch in the stagecoach.

Isn't he handsome?

Micah is becoming quite the typical male...thumb in mouth, feet kicked up, and sound asleep. What more could a baby ask for? LOL!

Brian and Caleb on the cow train...does Caleb look a little peeved to you? Well, he is...you see, the cow train didn't go fast enough. Geez...we've got a picky one on our hands.

Caleb feeding the goats at the petting zoo.

Micah, Sherrie, and Allie on the carousel...this was Micah's FIRST ride. He enjoyed himself.Caleb on the carousel.

Caleb having fun in the house that was filled with 6000 lbs of corn kernels.

There's nothing that quite says love like a good ol' game of family dodgeball. LOL! Too bad the boys all went after Allie.Brian gearing up to hit someone.

Caleb, Brian, and Daniel...probably trying to gang up on Allie like they did the whole time.

A horn truck...this gives a whole new meaning to "honk if you're horny." Brian says that Opa would have a truck like this if he could. LOL! A rear-view shot of the horn truck.
