Highlands Ranch Cowboy Days

Hello all, as you saw yesterday we went to Highlands Ranch Cowboy days. For those of you who do not know, Highlands Ranch is a city in our state. There is a Mansion there that is now called Highlands Ranch Mansion. It was built around 1900 and has a rich history. One of the bedrooms called the Julia room is thought to be haunted by one of the former owners daughters. There was also a murder scandal that surrounded around it's mistress in the early 1900's when one of her lovers killed another lover. Then her husband threw her out of the mansion. The mansion she was kicked out of by the way was called Castle Isabel which was her name. In the mid 1900's it was converted to a dairy and cattle ranch. Now it is only used as a place for tours and things like yesterday. It is very pretty and inspired Abby to want to get married. I think it was the Ball Room that did it, after we were in it, she said people get married there and kept telling us she wanted to get married to a boy...LOL... I think the ball Room reminded her of her Cinderella movies. Brianna liked all of the animals, as did Abby until she got her hand accidentally nipped feeding carrots to a pony. We had fun and it was a beautiful day for it. We went with Papa bear, and the girls love to spend time with him. Well, I hope everyone has a great week.
