Memory Makers

Girls BrandingWe love memory makers, and living on a ranch truly allows us to make new memories daily.  One of the biggest memory-makers over the past few weeks was the Wild Child turning five.  She has been counting down the days for 61 days… seriously– counting them down.  Every morning she would say “Only 52 more days until my birthday.”  “Only 28 more days until my birthday.”  We knew exactly at any moment we thought to ask (or not ask), how many days were left.  She wasn’t disappointed and got to have a birthday party with a few friends, and then a birthday party with some of her cousins when they came for Easter.  It doesn’t get much better than that.  She also had a great time riding, playing a little baseball, flying kites, and hunting eggs.  She sleeps well every night.

Now spring is here in full force, and with it all the spring time jobs.  I love branding time.  It might be a lot of work, but love the kids all working together, getting to work side-by-side with the family, enjoying the laughs and hard work, and watching the smiles.  Here are some of my favorite memory makers from our first branding at our home place.
