The Ranch
Labor Day weekend is usually the weekend that there is an extensive amount of traffic, so it’s not fun to go out because you will be stuck in traffic. However, this year’s Labor Day weekend was amazing. It was a nice mini vacation that was much needed for my family and I. My families ranch was a nice getaway for my family and I because we got to spend quality time with each other; something that is very rare when we are at home. My family and I went to spend time with some family members at their ranch and spent three relaxing days there. My mother had planned to leave on Friday evening and come back on Sunday evening. During those three days, we settled into our rooms, went fishing, spent time by the lake, and relaxed by the pool.

For our first day at the ranch, we went down to the lake for the day. The lake was huge, the water was glistening under the sun, and it looked very inviting. While at the lake, my family and I saw a lot of animals, but mainly birds. The birds were chirping loudly, and it sounded like calm relaxing piano music to my ears. My family and I decided to bring the horses out and ride them. Although my father was setting up his poles to start fishing, he managed to help us get on the horses and tell us what and what not to do while riding the horses. As I got on the horse i got this huge adrenaline rush and got so scared I was thinking nothing but bad thoughts in my head but my dad assured me I would be okay. As I started riding the horse slowly I felt as free as a bird it was so much fun. After my dad knew I was comfortable he left me ride the horse on my own but not far from him he wanted me to stay close and he continued fishing. My dad had caught a catfish which felt very slimy, slippery, cold, and looked very weird with a thin long looking mustache. As the sun started setting over the horizon, our first
