Summer on the Ranch Day 5

 It was a good day at the ol ranch.
No snakes...yet, and more hot hot sun.

In the afternoon, after lunch and once the sun hid behind the clouds,
 Ollie and I decided to try and put a stop to the prairie dog towns
 that are infesting the ranch.

These varmints eat the grass and ruin the open range where our cows graze.
Oliver and I conjured up an idea: we would go to Dairy Queen
and buy smoke bombs, then throw the bombs 
in the prairie dog holes and see what could happen.
Well, nothing happened.
It was a cool idea, and we had loads of fun trying.
Other memorable activities today included:
taking photos in front of the barn flag 
that Mr. Nielson and I painted a few years back.

The boys continued to catch more bullfrogs, lizards, and crazy-looking bugs.
Lottie spent all day with her favorite cousin, Margot.
And swinging on the porch swing (Nicholas looks like he is dying).

Finally, our night ended on top of the hill with the fire pit.
We sang songs, roasted marshmallows, lit sparklers, and took awesome pictures,
as seen in the following:

Happy weekend to one and all!!
