Recently my family and I went on a Western Vacation for a week. There were 19 of us smiling souls and we had a magical vacation.
We rode horses twice a day and ate like royalty. I gained 5 pounds which I figure isn’t that terrible all things considered.
We normally have a big dance at the end but because we were a little bit early there weren’t many others staying with us at the ranch.
One night we all went down for a shindig and hung out for a couple of hours. The entire family joined us for a while and then they began to fade away group by group.
But not us!
We we’re on vacation so we stayed out until midnight!
That’s a big deal for old people ha, not to mention the fact that we had a time change, so in all reality it was 2:00 at home! Go Hayduk’s!
My cousin Katie loves to stay out late and get crazy with us! Look at us 💜 I love these pictures and these memories! I love reliving them as I write to you this morning.
Around 11:30 that night I decided it was time for a picture with one of our favorite wranglers Jacob!
This promptly sparked an idea inside my mind! I told Jacob to find someone to take our picture, so he picked Hector who is also one of our favorite wranglers.
It’s fairly late and not many people are left at the party with us. We were feeling pretty good so I decided to see how many people we could get in our picture.
The person taking the picture had to go find someone else to take a new picture with them in it.
So I said “Hey Hector go find someone to take our picture and you get in here with us!” And he does just that and he joins our picture.
Meet Hector friends! He asked Charlie to take our picture and Charlie was one of our favorite hashers.
At this point I’m thinking to myself this is really working. I’m going to see how far I can take this.
So I say “Hey Charlie, go find someone to take our picture and you get in here with us!” And he does just that and he joins our group.
Meet Charlie friends!
At this point I’m seriously laughing so hard that I’m about to pee my pants. I told Jacob to tell Charlie to find someone to take our picture because I was laughing way to hard. Charlie went and got This adorable girl to take our picture next!
Her boyfriend was with her so at that point I told him to jump on in!
Who’s holding the camera now?
I have zero clues!
By this time, most of us that were left, we’re in the picture already, but we had drawn an interest from the others because we were having fun!
The laughter that ensued in between each picture is priceless!
Super cool kids 💜
We added 5 more kids to this picture all at once and clearly I’m in the midst of an important announcement! Ha ha ha!!!
We added 2 more kids to this picture! The guy in the back with his hat up and the guy beside him a hat!
The guy in the front is stealing the show but it’s ok because I’m loving every single minute of it.
So finally we’re down to only one kid who’s taking our picture and I feel so bad I’m like hold on you get your own individual selfie because we can’t leave you out.
And here he is the man behind the final photo. I know it’s a little blurry but that just means that it matched the night which was also a little fuzzy.
These kids make the experience a million times more awesome. I look forward to the ones we already know and I’m excited to always welcome the new ones.
May you learn to create your own shenanigans in life to reminisce about! May you learn to practice gratitude and love the life you’ve been given because tomorrow is never promised.
