We spent an evening being cowboys. We went on a trail ride though the woods, with beautiful views of the mountains in the distance. Walter wasn't quite big enough to ride a horse. He and Nate stayed behind and he got a pony ride on Sandy, the "championship racing mule." I'm told he loved every minute of it and didn't want to get off.
After the ride, we had a cowboy dinner, served lakeside on picnic tables with red checked tablecloths. Steaks, cowboy beans, baked potatoes, and freshly baked bread all cooked by our cowboy hosts. And it was good! I wouldn't mind being a cowboy with meals like that.
We had an amazing time. An awesome vacation with perfect weather, in a beautiful part of the country, and time spent with a great family.
