C Lazy U Kids Give Us a Gift to Treasure

When nine-year-old Grace and Zoey left C Lazy U after a weeklong adventure at the ranch with their parents during the busy winter season, they were, like many of our young guests, very sad to say goodbye — and not just to our horses, but to the action-packed activities that they took part in, such as snow tubing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and sledding. These girls made the most of their time at C Lazy U Ranch!

We were also sad to say goodbye to such fun-loving, hardworking girls, so we were delighted to hear back from the family just a few days later.

“We got together with the other family (our traveling partners) for dinner last week and the girls, Grace and Zoey, disappeared upstairs after dinner,” Jude Olinger, Grace’s father, wrote to the ranch. “They came back down sometime later and with great fanfare presented us with a C Lazy U Ranch book that they had made.”

Mr. Olinger generously shared the storybook with us, and we were so impressed with Grace and Zoey’s work that we’d like to show it off to everyone.

At C Lazy U Ranch, we’re always looking to make sure our guests have the dude ranch vacation of a lifetime — and we’re thrilled that we were able to give that to Grace and Zoey. We would like to thank them for creating such a wonderful book and sharing their experience.

We hope to see them back at C Lazy U Ranch soon. In fact, the girls have asked how old they must be to work here at the ranch, so we expect them back as ranch hands in just a couple years!
