Our Weekend at the Ranch

We headed back to Wyoming again this week for the holiday weekend
(Pioneer day in Utah = Vacation!)
The PBR Rodeo was in town, so we put on our boots and headed to the stands. PBR is Pro Bull Riding, there were several good rides but my favorite part of the night was bull poker.

Bull Poker is a fun little rodeo game that takes place in Afton every year. The game goes like this.
Volunteers from the audience come down from the stand and sit in a chair in a circle in the middle of an arena then they let out a chosen bull.
The point of the game is to stay in your chair. Last one sitting, wins a cash prize. That night the winner actually ran away with $500!
The bull didn’t really pay attention the circle for the first little bit so the circle migrated closer to the bull. Genius right?

The bull didn’t seriously injure anyone, but did charge the group a few times.
Brave souls.
The next day we woke up to this.
We spent the last couple of days swinging, throwing rocks in the pond, riding four-wheelers and dropping from the zip line.
Here are a few pics from the trip!
My sister Heather and I
Tanner could of thrown rocks ALL day if I would of let him!
Swinging and running! These two can’t get enough of the ranch!
We took the babies on their first little four wheeling adventure, Not far or fast. Tanner loved it! Baylee had second thoughts and kept saying “I don’t want it, I don’t want it.” But never cried and even threw out a Yee-haw!
We spent some time walking down the streets of Afton and wanted to stop by the chocolate factory but didn’t make it in time before it closed. If you are planning a trip through or to Afton/star valley, all the stores and shops close at 6pm. Grocery store closes at 8!
Isn’t that the best scripture?
We made a stop at Red Baron to get the kiddos a ice cream cone!
Then I was home to watch some people ride/drop off the zip line. It was a little bit to chilly for me to drop. (I’m such a cold water pansy!)
Here is the zip line in action!! These are my two cousins dropping together! The zip line has always been one of my favorite activities growing up. I can’t wait until B & T are old enough to ride!
After a great weekend being unplugged (NO internet, or great cell service) for 4 days, which has to be some sort of record…. it feels good sometimes!  We are back home and it’s back to work tomorrow!
Happy Birthday UTAH!
Question of the day:
Would you play Bull Poker?

  1. Looks like a great weekend! The zip line looks super fun! And NO, I don't think I would ever play bull poker! That is crazy! :)
