This past Saturday, our family headed out to Storybook Ranch. Phillip's mom (Nana) joined us. We were greeted with apple cider, tractors, pony rides, pumpkins and this gorgeous Victorian House. It wasn't open for a tour, but it sure would have been fun to peek around. Maybe stay a few nights. :0)
There was plenty of cold apple cider to go around.
Emily is testing out a saddle. The rides *with* a horse attached were rather expenisve!
It was a mighty fine day for a tractor ride.
As if the pumpkin patch wasn't enough fun, there was more entertainment up ahead, just past the beautiful creek.
Welcome to the western town that consists of 15 buildings, hand-constructed with period architecture and antiques. What a perfect place to visit after our Prairie Day experiement!!
Tucked around tall trees was the sweetest church. Can you see the little smoke stack? Dot, I thought of you when I saw it.:0)
Inside the general store was a wonderful cookstove, along with all the supplies you would need to stock your prairie kitchen.
The town came alive with a gunfight show on Main Street. It was a little too real for Benjamin, he wasn't sure about getting his picture taken with the "bad" cowboy! Nana was brave though!
We had a nice lunch under the pine trees and ice cream cones finished off the meal.
Our fun day ended with a ride on a horse and wagon, just like Laura and Mary!!
Thanks for looking!! See y'all next time! ;0)
How absolutly fun. What a great day. I am sure your family will remember. Clarice
OOOO, the girls and I are jealous!!! :D
It looks like y'all had a lot of fun there. We pass Storybook Ranch a lot and the girls always talk about the house we can see from the street. Now I KNOW I'll have to take them someday. :)
Wow! What a neat 'field trip'...looks like lots of fun. I'm so glad you all had a good time!
And thanks for your sweet words about our home. We do love our little haven! It's a very special house, and in fact, I've been working on a post about it!
Hope you have a great rest of the week!
That looked like a fun day, Kelli. I loved the Victorian house. Too bad you couldn't look inside and take some pictures.
The western town looked interesting, too. Loved the old cookstove. :o)

How fun!!! What a neat place to be able to go to. Is it close to where you live?
It sure sounds and looks like you had a fun day.
Oh, I just admired the wonderful parcel you sent to dawn. What a nice idea you had and - wow, you got 51 comments!!! What a pity, I missed this game... why havn't I been to your nice blog before ;-))
As I am usually very very busy in the garden during spring and summer times, I just enjoy the autumn as a kind of "slow-down" period, for myself as well as for the nature.
How much fun Kelli, I love the pictures, looks like everyone had a blast :)
What a delightful place to spend the day with your children! Your pictures show the joy on their faces!
Looks like you all had such a beautiful day! What a charming place; they must know how many people love things like that. Looks like you had perfect weather for it too... though... was is pretty warm with COLD apple cider instead of warm? A typical Texas autumn day? ;)
This looks like such fun! We are Texas transplants too, can you tell me where Storybook Ranch is?
Storybook Ranch is located in Mckinney. Here is their website for more information.
It's a really neat place!
