A Rawhide Ranch Christmas

December 17, 2015

You may remember a month or so back when I posted about our friend’s getting married at a place called Rawhide Ranch. This place was so neat. It looked like an old western town complete with farm animals, a saloon, stage and dance floor, and more. There was even an area of covered wagons circled and a campfire in the middle where you can rent them out to go camping!

When we were on our way out I was so curious about what this awesome place was and if they’re open daily or just for private events. I pulled up their site and saw they had a big Christmas event last Saturday and Sunday so we asked a couple of our friends to head out with us to celebrate the season!

First stop: hot cocoa. I may look relaxed in this photo, but I needed this cocoa SO. BAD. We had just left the mall on the second to last shopping weekend of the season. All was going well until we hit the double-decker Target and the escalator broke. I just happened to be digging through camisoles when I heard the horror unleash nearby and the Target employee/manager(?) quietly freaking out to the repairman… “Do you know what day this is?! We can’t have a broken escalator!”

What this meant for us: our full shopping cart could not make it back up to the floor we parked on. I told Tyler to run to the car and scoot it around to the lower level while Fox and I guarded it outside. Twenty minutes later I’m wondering what the heck happened to my husband when I see him running towards me huffing and puffing. I had the car keys. And then he began his journey back and returned another 10 minutes later.

When I needed a cocoa, Tyler got himself a coffee (if that explains his sentiments at this point).

Then we put Fox with Santa. This poor man was so sweet, but Fox was still horrified.

He did much better with the two of us in the photo.
