My exercise buddy and good friend invited us up to her family's ranch yesterday. It is up in the mountains above Salina and a VERY beautiful place.
|The Salamander Pond.|
First we drove and then hiked to the 'Salamander Pond'. The kids didn't catch any salamanders, but it was a very picturesque place.
|The boat ride.|
Some of them even got in the boat and rowed to the other side.
|Princess P with Hopie and Juta.|
Some of us hiked to the other side to meet them...
|The kids eating dinner, surrounded by dogs.|
We then drove back down to the ranch house and had a BBQ. They have lots of dogs, so we spent the evening surrounded by them. They were very well-behaved and sweet.

After dinner the kids roasted marshmallows and made s'mores. Yummy!
|That is the biggest grill I have ever seen!|
It was such a fun day! I hope we can go again sometime. It was an awesome place to be!
