The Rock Ranch





Matt is out of town for the weekend, so I took the boys to The Rock Ranch for the day on Saturday. It was a chilly day (high around 50), but we had a fun time and stayed for about seven hours.

Here are some pictures from the day:

Henry had excitedly been talking for weeks about the new "Tiny Town" exhibit that was under construction during our last visit. He was not disappointed. It is a whole child-sized town. Here he is entering the church:



and on the balcony of the boarding house:


The corn house was Oliver's favorite attraction. Neither boy wanted to get out when their turn was over.


Pony Rides



The Cow Train



Climbing Rocks


And Rock Walls


They even let Oliver give it a try!


There was a monster truck show. We waited for about twenty-five minutes, squirming around on the crowded bleachers.


But, Oliver felt that the monster truck was too noisy (it was) so we moved on a few minutes after it started.


We went through the corn maze. They gave us a flag to hold up if we got lost or frustrated.


This simple tree swing was a big hit.



The boys were definitely ready for bed that night!
