A FUN DAY AT THE RANCH!







Saturday was a Fun Family Day at The Rock Ranch just a few miles away.  My grandson Joshua was running in a Cross Country Run there.  It was Family Fun Day .  He did good but, before the race to warm up, he ran some of it so he didn't do as good as he had been doing, cause he was already a little tired. It was a 3 and 1/2 mile run. The Ranch is a 1,500 acre cattle ranch owned by S.Turett Cathy, founder of Chic-fil-A restaurants and Turett's Grill. You can read about it here, just click on the link below.




Here the team has just finished praying before they start the run.  My grandson is the one on the left with his back to me.  He doesn't like his picture taken. (Teenagers)






Here he is at the finish line, 24 minutes later.  This is his first year in  high school Cross Country.


It's a beautiful ranch and Saturday was a pretty day.  There are lots of things to do there.  Schools take the children on field trips and lots of special events take place. Oh and they even have covered wagons that you can rent and camp out, I didn't get a picture of the wagons.





There's even a Mini Village.



Here's my daughter and my grandson (Johnathan) standing in front of the mini church.



The visiting children were really enjoying the underground slide.



Here is more of the ranch.



I almost forgot to tell you that there's a tall Zip Line.




Oh, and yes, when I first got there what did I see but "Pumpkins".  I was " IN " to the race so much that I totally forgot to buy a pumpkin on my way out.


I hope your weekend was a good one.

Have a Blessed Day!

  1. What a great way to spend your weekend! Looks like a wonderful place for a race! Sorry you forgot the pumpkin! I'm sure you will have other opportunities to get one this month. I have to wait a little while because if I get it too soon when it's this hot, it won't last very long. But fall is in the air! Thank you for sharing your fun weekend with us!

  2. What a wonderful family day, for all of you. What a delightful place to go to, to watch a "Grand's" sports. It certainly beats sitting in a hot, stuffy gym. :-))))

    And a perfect day too. Great Blogging Photo Op Day!!!!!!!!!! We always love to find those. :-)
