On the Ranch

Ugh! Sorry! Posted too early by accident! So, here’s the updated post…

It’s hard to know where to start with posting pics of the latest Hawaii adventure. There’s about 800 to choose from, and narrowing down is difficult when I’m a bit biased towards the subjects, of course.

I think I’ll start at the ranch – a Crasher favorite. Auntie Nicci and Uncle Teva have a pretty nice setup, living on a horse ranch across the street from the beach! And to add to the fun, they also have the four best cousins ever! (Per Selah & Asher’s opinion, of course – because, you know, I have cool cousins too 😉).

The kids – especially Asher – loved the horses. Every morning (all too early) he’d want to go pick grass and feed them.

There was also a new baby horse on the ranch, which was so sweet…

We conned Hojo into taking him a few times too 😉:

Asher’s other favorite pastime was riding the golf cart around the ranch. A favorite with Uncle Teva and Taoa:

While Selah enjoyed both those things, nothing made her happier than hanging with her cousins. This series with her sweet expressions with Taoa makes my heart smile:

And Miss Sassy Pants with big Taoa at church:

Both kids stealing Taoa-time:

More ranch time – Selah practicing her track (ie. running everywhere as a race) and Eli on his bike:

Grampee also got talked into taking Crashy to the baby horse (so sweet):

On one of their ranch rides, Taoa caught a few great pics of Asher exploring too:

What a special place it is, but it’s the people that really make it that way. Plenty of beach pics to come, but had to start at the beginning and end with the Pou home:
