Enchanted Springs Ranch

Yesterday we spent the day with Mitsi and family at Enchanted Springs Ranch. I had heard of it, but never thought of going there. It is a must see!! It's a working cattle ranch, with a big Old West town set, and many people in costume everywhere. We watched the buffalo be fed, saw a gun and bull whip demonstration, took a hayride around the ranch, and the kids got to sit on a longhorn, and ride on a horse! If you're ever in the Boerne area, check this place out. Enchanted Springs Ranch.com

I had the urge to turn all of these photos to sepia or black and white to look old. I fought it off, most of the time. ;)

Watching the buffalo.

They clapped'em them varmints in the jail!
We even watched a real live arrest. Do you recognize those villains?!

What are ya, a bunch of turkeys?!
A bunch of wild turkeys came blazing thru town.

Charlie and Chance loved dressing like Cowboys for the day. They're still having shoot-outs at home with their little pistols today.

I love all of the pics! I am so glad that you all made it out there! When I was teaching, that was where we took the first graders in the spring to end our Texas Unit. :) It's tons of fun! I think that I'll be taking Rachel in the fall. :) Thanks for reminding me. I had forgotten. :) Thanks for taking and posting the pics! :) God bless you all! Love, Melony
