TN Jensen Ranch

Our last big "outdoor" weekend before winter begins. We spent the weekend at a ranch over 10,000 feet. You feel like you are in a different world because you are in the middle of nowhere. It's beautiful, especially right now that all the leaves are changing. The best part is seeing all the wild animals everywhere. We didn't see any this time, but the Jensen's say they always see bears.
Can you believe this view?
The story of my life, Dean was not happy Sammy was trying to get on the four wheeler with him.
Just relaxing and enjoying the fresh air.
He is getting so big. I love he can say "cheese."
My little man Dean.
Dean with his aunt Becca.
The boys with their aunt Lizzy. She was great to take the boys on so many four wheeler rides.
The kids were in heaven with all their tractor rides.
The man lift, it was like a roller coaster ride.
The kids did not want to get off.
A couple of weeks ago we went to the zoo. Can you believe this white alligator? It came right to the window. I was even scared.

Growing up

Sorry about the upside down picture, I couldn't figure out how to flip it.
We just got a pass at the Discovery Gateway in Salt Lake. The kids just love it. There is so much for them to do and it's fun to watch them explore and learn. I have to watch Dean though, he is such a bully and picks on all the kids smaller and even bigger than him. I even had a mom chew me out because Dean tackled her son. I just told her sorry, even though deep down I wanted to tell her that her son is a whimp. The Discovery Gateway has all these fun costumes for the kids to wear. Sammy liked the cow costume best.

I walked outside and this is what Sammy created. He told me it was a tractor. Pretty creative for using pieces of chalk and scraps of wood.

Sammy's new obsession is painting. I might have a future artist on my hands.
