Saturday morning had us leaving the house by 8am heading to Lonn's for branding. Lonn and Katie had purchased sliced pork and I provided the rest of the food--potato salad, calico baked beans and a green salad with homemade poppy seed dressing--a favorite of Katie and Laci's. Dessert included Costco pies and homemade rhubarb crisp--my rhubarb is out of control! It was a day of fun (except for the calves) and laughter.
After I started lunch Emmi and I decided to take a walk--the main house on the ranch Lonn manages is way up on top of a hill--probably only about 1/2 a mile but with an extreme elevation gain--I was huffing and puffing as was Emmi! But the views from up there can't be beat!
