Easter at the ranch

Well, John and I had been praying that he would somehow be able to make it down to Corpus for Easter. Thursday went by, then Friday, then Saturday, and I just as I was about to lose hope, he called me Sunday morning and says we finished this project, and my buddy and I are on our way down. I was soooo exited! So, I drove to pick him up in a town about 25 miles from my moms house. Yeah, we got our daddy back just in time to celebrate. Only, he'd been awake for the last 16 hours, so we let him sleep for about 5 hours and then he was good to go. We took a few pics of the kids opening their baskets. For some reason, I was just not into baskets this year. I think maybe because we didn't know if John was going to be able to make it. So, I decided to combine Mia and Bash's basket. Bash was cool with it because the only two things in it that were hers were a sock monkey and Horton (from Horton hears a Who). Then we headed to my dad's ranch for some more festivities.








Ahhh the ranch. Literally, as soon as we pull up and the car doors open, Bash becomes another kid. He wears these crazy rubber, slicker type boots, and then disappears into the wild. He takes off on the four wheeler or the cabota, and then just out of the blue we'll see him walking around with some kind of rifle or pellot gun. Its too funny, then when we finally do catch up to him he's drinking all the Sprite he can like a little savage. He's our lil Rancho Boy!
















How pathetic, these little outlaws trying to look tough, but they are holding AIR SOFT guns that shoot soft pellots. Nice try boys!








This is what happens when you don't wear protective eyewear..."you'll shoot your eye out"

My dad also built this cross Sat. night out of old railroad ties. The sun set down on it just beautifully, it was truly breathtaking.




It was really difficult to leave my dad, before we left I stopped to give him one last hug, and his tears just came streaming down. He squeezed me so tight and handed me a CD that he'd bought for me after he heard this song. It is by Darius Rucker, the lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish. Its about a man who is struggling with the idea that his daughter won't be a baby forever. Its that second song on my playlist called "It won't be like this for long" if you want to hear it, just scroll down to the bottom of my blog.
