Well... Robert got his first taste of the Ranch and this was his overall reaction
Needless to say, he is raring and ready to go. We are so happy he liked the property.
We are going to have to adjust being 30 minutes away from all of our friends so it helps to know that he would like to come stay with us and thinks all of our other friends will be just as ready to come and hang out on the weekends.
We took him down the driveway and his eyes lit up. We showed him where the houses are going to sit and then we went through the property
Showing him all of our hunting stands
Then we walked down to the river and it just so happened that a flock of ducks flew out from the undercut of the riverbank.
Couldn't have been more picturesque!
Robert broke out the duck calls and got on it!
That was truly one of the most beautiful moments at the property so far.
Listening to the sound of the duck call bellowing through the trees, listening to the ducks and birds respond, the water flowing.
It was awesome.
I think Robert will have a blast down here. :)
Dang it... We all Will!
In other news:
I am DEATHLY afraid of heights
However, I am very proud that I made myself get into a
Lock on stand with climbing sticks while we were down at the property.
It took me 3 times to get all the way up...
And about 20 minutes to get down...
Ha Ha Ha but I did it!
Here was my view!
Pretty Dang amazing if you ask me!
If I had the courage to do that in the dark, It would be
GAME ON for Deer Season!
As of right now, I am still a chicken
and It will probably take me a few more tries before I go it along..
But the views are like no other
That is for sure!
Robert ended his trip with a donut and tearin' shit up with his truck Scarlett!
ha ha ha
Pretty good time down on the ranch. Ready to get down there
and really have some fun! :)
Until Next Time
Once of our very best family friends, Meredith Hill & Bart Parson, tied the knot a few weekends ago.
I ended up doing the photography for the wedding and little miss Kindall was the flower girl.
We were so excited to see Meredith and Bart start their lives together and couldn't wait to get down to see them!
They just so happen to live about 20 minutes away from our new property and it was fun to get to explore the area and take in the beautiful scenery on the drive down.
Kindall and I had to be there early, for obvious reasons, and the rest of the Mize Clan followed later on.
Kindall and I spent the hour drive with the radio off and enjoying pointing out the stunning fall trees and the wide open pastures.
After a stupid moment of thought we actually started taking pictures to put up on the blog and the photos below are what came from the beautiful, breezy, sunny, fall afternoon!
Aaannndddd... We just so happen to see this little guy while we were on our way down! I just love VW buses....
Obsession talk will be in later posts, I'm sure!
Kindall snapped a few photos for me.. reminds me of my old blue Blue!
We took the time to enjoy our new area and to imagine and dream about how excited we were that a drive like this everyday was going to be ours!
All of the trees dotted the sides of the road with the stunning fall colors.
Kindall made me aware that there were a good many places where the road was lined and covered with huge, beautiful trees and made it seem like we were going through a tunnel.
We would get all excited when we saw a spot like that coming and we of course had the sunroof open to enjoy all the views...
Finally we got out of the car when we reached Meredith's and were able to enjoy their farm and land for the wedding!
Needless to say
The quaint backyard wedding had their names all over it! From the hay bales that their guests sat on, to the old Ford truck that their cake sat on. It was simply the cutest backyard wedding! Big M is very excited for Meredith and Bart and can't wait to be their neighbors (kinda) in the next few years! We are so proud of you two and can't wait to see what exciting things the good man upstairs has for you two!
Congratulations you two!
Mr. & Mrs. Bart Parson
