We had the privilege of hosting friends from Pasadena, California. Juliet and I worked together in Burbank for many years. For Juliet and her husband Kevin, both pretty much 'city kids', our little ranch was the deepest country they had ever experienced. We're ten miles off the paved highway in the lightly populated state of Nebraska.

When planning this visit, we had hoped that Rogan could experience running free in all this open space in the country. Well, the best laid plans. They arrived on Wednesday evening, and the rain and fierce winds started on Thursday and kept up all day followed by rain, sleet and snow on Friday! There was a break in the weather on Thursday so Rogan got to swing on the big tree swing; and they got to hold a baby chick, pet the baby horses, and check out the garden.

Friday during the winter storm, our little cottage seemed to shrink with a 3 year old filled with pent up energy.
