A few weeks ago we headed out to the Oil Ranch. That place was awesome. We went with a huge group of friends (saved on admission that way, thankyouverymuch). There was so much to do. The kids had such a blast. We were actually experiencing fairly cool weather for mid-October, so we were really soaking up the whole “autumnal” vibe. It really felt like fall. That’s not real common here in Texas.

There is a little train that takes you around part of the ranch:

There was fake machinery to take pictures in front of (heh). Not sure what it is, exactly. An oil pump?

There were pony rides. Hali’s very first. She LOVED it!

And as we were leaving, every kid got to pick out a pumpkin to take home:

There was also a little petting zoo type area with farm animals, you could milk a cow, there was a hay maze, volleyball, playground equipment, and several other things that we just didn’t have time to do. We’ll have to go back next year!

  1. Looks like an oil well pump. It is what is left after they take down all the drilling contraptions…you know, the really tall Eiffel Tower looking thing.

    Looks like a fun experience!

  2. That looks fun and educational!

  3. Wow! That really looked like a lot of fun! My youngest would’ve loved that pumpkin patch. Your kids are so adorable too!
    Also…I’m still waiting for episode two of your soap opera! 🙂
