celebrated with the pioneer woman!!!

Jill and I were fortunate enough to be invited by Amy out to the ranch...

The Pioneer Woman's ranch

to celebrate the fourth of July!

{thank you Amy!}



The Pioneer Woman lives a little over an hour from my house. Driving through her land we were stopped by this...



We had to honk a bit but we made it through. Got moo'd at a few times.



After reading her blog for years I felt like these were famous cows!





As we got closer to her house we saw the famous horses also...



We got to chat a bit with Ree (she is super nice!)

and we ate lots of yummy food... (jalapeno poppers- oh my word!)



watched an amazing fireworks show...



and we even got to meet Charlie! (he was really impressed by us, can't you tell?)



Thank you Amy and Ree for letting us join in the celebration!
