Back to Black Rock Ranch

We were invited back up to the ranch to spend the weekend with our friends the Porters visiting from Washington. The Edgrens, Porters, Callaways, and us (we missed the Barlows who had an ugly flu bug at their house!) all camped out in the beautiful, empty house. I do mean empty--not even a sofa in the whole place! We brought camping chairs and blow up mattresses and literally camped for the weekend. It was an amazing adventure!
We rode motorcycles...
and quads...

We jetskied...
and tubed...



We rode the mule (a 4-wheel drive golf cart)...

And just hung out at the beach with old friends...

And then there was Owen who enjoyed finding hiding spots in the big, empty house...



Good times!!

Yea! I was having blog post withdrawal. I read Britt's blog earlier today, and saw her pictures of Black Rock Ranch. Looks like you all had a great time. It was great talking to Carly today. Did you get the plumbing situation under control? Hope so. It looks like Owen's forehead is healing well and he is up to his usual quiet mischief. Love you all! Mom

You guys always look like you have so much fun and go on such amazing trips and outings with your kids. I can't wait till my twins are old enough to really appreciate 4 wheelers, the cabin, the ocean etc. You have a beautiful family.
Yes, Josselyn does look a lot like a Browning, and Jaxon is 100% his dad- No Browning in him at all.
