Last weekend, for us, was spent in middle-of-nowhere Antimony, Utah. We lodged at the Rockin' R Ranch with 80 some-odd people for the Alvord Family reunion.
This is the Post office in Antimony. It is in perfect proportion to the rest of the town. I loved it.
When we arrived, late Friday night, Josh thought our bunk was a little too boring. He decided to unpack my bag and decorate with every single item I brought. I was still looking for some things the morning we left.
We had a weekend filled with Ranch activities. We rode horses in the middle of grassy fields, went tubing down the Sevier River, took long naps, put on a rodeo, played games that ended with everyone having to throw horse poop, went on a horse drawn hay ride, ate biscuits and gravy, enjoyed camp fires and some quality family time. It was really fun catching up with Josh's cousins. They are pretty rad and we always have fun when we are with them.
You bet your bottom dollar that when I heard I was within the weight limit to do the mutton bustin, I jumped right on one of these bad boys. That's right, I rode a sheep...
Dan and a few other crazy extended family members dared to ride a baby bull. They are all crazy, crazy I tell ya! The closest hospital was 1.5 hours away. The ranch worker said that people get stepped on, dislocated, and broken all the time riding these bulls. Dan won the bull riding contest, in fact he made it look easy, and was the only one who landed on their feet once bucked off. He might have a new career in his future. Watch his victorious ride at the bottom.
