Thar's Oil in Them Thar Hills...

My parents and my nephew, Thomas, came down to Texas for a few days because Dad had to check on some business with his brother, Ted, and their land/oil business. So the girls and I met them up in Wichita Falls to take a tour of the ranch.

It took me a long time to wrap my brain around the fact that my grandparents actually lived on the land out there... it's miles of nothing... It was neat to have dad show us around and point out places he used to hang out. There was a stocked lake that we tried unsuccessfully to catch fish in and Thomas was in critter heaven - mainly bugs but also horses, cows, turtles and huge bullfrogs! I also was able to visit the grave sites of my maternal great-grandparents and my Grandma Davis.

Mom's birthday fell while they were here and I took her to get a pedicure. ☺ And I got to make Father's Day dinner for Dad and Bryan too!

How fun! All the pictures are so cool. I especially love all the renegade names you gave the kiddos.
