We went to our friend’s ranch this weekend down in Cross Plains, TX. They have over 65 acres of land with 4 cows and 2 calves.  My boys LOVE visiting the ranch.

Below is Gunnar’s first time DRIVING!!!  It was only a golf cart, but still SUPER fun for him!!

They also have Vineyards on their ranch (Nubbin Ridge Vineyards)…. the grapes were so pretty!

This trip was a kind of neat because we went down the road to a neighboring ranch that had a deer farm and raised Long Horn Cattle. My boys got to feed both the beautiful deer and also the gorgeous and gentle Long Horns. What amazing creatures!

This Long Horn (below) is worth $83,000.00.  Can you believe that?  The owner of this ranch purchased her for $1,500 and was offered $20,000 just a few months later by the same person that sold her.  The length of her horns determines their value.  Someone just offered the owner $83,000 for her, but he wouldn’t sell her because he considers her his pet.

I’d love to share with you a piece of My Beautiful Life. Thank you Melissa for inspiring me to take a minute to appreciate the wonderful life I have 🙂
These are my boys.  As much as they fight (very loudly!), I love them with all my heart… and looking at this picture just makes me smile!
