To Town!

And its off To Town I go!  BY MYSELF!  Oh yes, dare I say it, I went into Sheridan, Wy ALL BY MYSELF!  Now rewind 3 months ago and I would never have said this was a big deal.  I was to town everyday, had 5 miles of straight roads, took the kids to daycare by 6:50 am, 7:00 at work (on most days!), and I could run errands, go for a leisurely walk by myself over lunch, and enjoy.  Fast forward to today,  9 miles of dirt (not gravel….dirt) roads – which currently are covered in a severe sheet of ice with a layer of snow – not to mention these are MOUNTAIN roads – curvy, up and down, feel like you are falling off the side – type roads.  OK, So maybe a little melodramatic but this was my first time driving out by myself since we moved, that is around 60 days of no trips to anywhere by myself.  This is my sanity time for me —the mom!

So here we go, I only have a few quick pictures.

One of my first selfies and I’m actually with makeup and hair done!

Once I stopped, so did they, when I started driving again they were back to running with me.  Awesome!

Not everyone gets to travel with a herd of running horses on their way to the highway, We do!  Nearly every time.

King’s Saddlery, is a must see for anyone in the Sheridan area.  There is so much more to this business than the tack, there is a museum, an art gallery, a home stuff side.  Awesome.

Not to mention Riddles in Downtown Sheridan.  Great help, even though they told me my ring was incredibly dirty!  That is what happens on the Ranch!  So I’m tempted to buy a single silver band for everyday wear around here.  I just feel lost without my ring, don’t you? – for those that are married :D.

Here is a picture from the Sheridan Chamber of Commerce (they have an awesome website as well).  If I would have been thinking more about telling you about my trip, I would have taken my own pictures of some of these things, however, when a mama gets out, she is out and free from all.  I stopped at many different shops along the way.

These two love to go with The Rancher feeding the critters!

I enjoyed my day out and it looks like the kids enjoyed their day away from me too but it is always nice to be home!  Here was my view as I drove back into the ranch that afternoon.  What an awesome day it was.

 If you ever get to Sheridan check out Downtown.  It truly is awesome.  What is your favorite city’s downtown area like?

    Seriously…downtown Sheridan is one of my faves! We were there Thanksgiving of 2012 for a basketball tournament and I fell in love!
