Oil Ranch

On Wednesday, June 19 Caitlyn's class had a field trip to the Oil Ranch. Wow, that place has changed quite a bit since I went back when I was in elementary school. When I went, the place had a barn filled with hay and a rope swing, a cow to milk, a hay ride to go out and feed the cows and a trampoline. Now, this place still has the barn with a face lift, no rope swing. Horses to ride. You can still milk the cows and ride the hay ride. A train to ride, a petting zoo, swimming pool and huge slide. There is more there, but we didnt get a chance to visit it all. Below are some pictures of what we were able to do.

Here is the cow to milk... Caitlyn was not into that at all!!! You can tell by the look on her face how she felt about it.
Train ride. Caitlyn loved the train the most. We rode through a tunnel and all the kids loved to scream as loud as they could to hear the echo. Loved it!!! I wasnt able to get to sit with her on the train, I had to sit a couple of cars down. Caitlyn flipped a bit when she couldnt see me and the train was taking off. But once we took the first corner and she saw me... all was good and fun.
The famous hay in the famous barn. Another favorite.
Caitlyn got to ride a horse. She still isnt a fan of horseback riding. Never really has been. She says it is too bouncy.
Here is Caitlyn's class
A pic of CP3 and me on the hay ride. About to go feed the cows.
Class pic again.

Cows weren't hungry, but the horses must have been starving. They ran up to the wagan and were litterally in our faces. Caitlyn changed her mind on feeding the horses at first, so she gave me her pellets and I got to feed the horses... for the first time. :O) I was proud of myself. Then something must have happened cause Caitlyn changed her mind and wanted to feed the horses. She did an amazing job and fed 3 horses. No fear. I was even more proud of her.
Cailtyn and I had a great day together. The only thing that would have made it better would have been temperatures in the 70's. :o)
