First Visit to Rotan

Brandon, the kids,and I made our first ever trip out to Rotan, TX to visit my sister this weekend. She moved out there this past summer with her husband. He is from there. We had a great time visiting and seeing and learning all about Katy's new "city."

On Saturday morning, we bundled up. It was a nice 15 degrees out with a windchill of 0. We wanted to check out the ranch where Clay works now. Andrew loved seeing the cows. And the fun part was watching Clay doing his fun job this weekend of giving them their drugs for artificial insemination! Never thought I'd see that in a lifetime!

Then we went up and took a tour of the ranch and the beautiful gazebo up the hill. Lillian called it the "tower." It had a beautiful view. And they had lots of old wagons that the kids just had to climb in!

Lillian also loved seeing all the huge windmills out there generating energy for the surrounding areas. She called them pinwheels! And we got to see the last of the cotton harvesting going on, but got stuck behind the trucks on the road...oh, the fabric of our lives!

Then we had a visit from Katy's mother-in-law, Lisa with Katy's nephew, Cooper. He and the kids had a fun time playing. He played ball with Lillian and then just liked picking up Andrew to show how strong he is.

Then in the evening, Katy got out her Just Dance game for Wii and we played a little. Andrew jammed out while Katy and Clay played. Then Brandon was nice enough to video Katy and I...ha ha.

Then today, we just had a relaxing morning hanging out with Aunt Katy before we left. Thanks for having us, Katy and Clay! We had fun and hope to see ya'll again soon!

First, we have cotton fields all around us and it sucks big time to get stuck behind farm vehicles and trucks all the time. I love the way your hair looks! When did you go light? You look so good and that game looks fun. I may have to try that one.
