This is the kind of dad CJ is: he finds $40 round trip tickets to Colorado and decides to take his 18 month old son on a boys' trip to visit his grandpa on the ranch. I don't know any men that would take their 18 month old on a trip on their own. CJ is the most capable dad I know! CJ's dad also went with them which was so fun for Robbie to spend time with his dad, grandad, and great grandpa!
CJ used to go out to Colorado to help his grandpa with the ranch in the summer. CJ flew me out when we first started dating to visit him. I have the best memories of that week at the ranch with him. He was so excited to show Robbie.
I love this picture!
I love this one too. Hay bales for Robbie to climb, tractors, cars, ATV's--a boy's heaven!
The truck in the background was CJ's grandpa's grandpa's car. CJ thinks it's from the 1930s. There are a couple of really cool old cars in some garages around the ranch.
One of my favorite parts of the ranch is the fish hatchery! Robbie loved looking at all of the fish.
There they go!
CJ always thinks the tag of his beanie goes directly in the middle of his forehead when it's supposed to go to the side. Dads.
While I was slightly envious of missing Robbie's first time at the ranch, I also love that he had such a special time with his dad. With these cheap flights, I can see this becoming a tradition for them that I'm sure Robbie will cherish in the years to come!
