When the kids were on Summer chop my friend and I wanted to take them somewhere that would be a current experience.
- We had done the whole theme park thing, a week at the beach, plus even camping at a local mountain resort.
We found a current place that would hopefully supply them memories to last a lifetime. We flew to the midwest plus didn’t tell them where my friend and I were going. I had packed all the proper attire for the stay plus when my friend and I arrived at the dude ranch my friend and I were greeted by our guide for the week. The kids thought it was going to be cool at first. When my friend and I were awoken at five in the day to do chores, all that changed. They expected that my friend and I would be able to hang around, ride horses, plus maybe do some fishing. Well, the experience my friend and I signed up for was more of a hands on getaway. They were going to be mucking stalls, grooming horses, plus even harvesting gardens. A little difficult work would build character. The guide told us that it was a family getaway so my friend and I all needed to work together. We toiled away the days laboring on the ranch plus learning how much goes into making it work! Then, when the sun set my friend and I spent the evening enjoyable under the stars. The rest of the getawayers along with our family sat around a campfire plus relaxed after our long day of chores. I the only relief my friend and I found was the time my friend and I spent in the cabins. At least each one was air conditioned so those precious hours of sleep were spent comfortable. The aches plus pains of the day seemed to melt away in the soft feather bed that was in our room, and my memories from that getaway will be centered around the comfort I found there, not in the stinky horse stalls that my friend and I needed to clean.
