A Sad Goodbye

This week we said goodbye to an "old friend".
This friend came into our lives when the kids were just two years old. He took us places and showed us sights that we never could have seen without him. He'd carry us to the top of a mountain, fly us around a sand dune, And trek us through a beautiful desert. He'd often join us on Picnics, date nights and family vacations. This old friend took a LOT of abuse from our family but he rarely let us down.
He'd bring out the best, (and sometimes the worst) in us. But more than anything he brought us closer together as a family.
Unfortunately, sometimes friends get old, and they stop meeting our needs. And that's when it's time to say "We've had some great times together and we've made some great memories, but you're just not working out for us anymore". And we say  "goodbye". And we move on.....

One of our first rides on the Ranger. At the Sand Dunes, before he got his back seat installed.

The Rocky mountains In CO. Thanks to the Ranger, we saw a many breathtaking views like this!

Here's the Ranger all dressed up and ready to pull the Watson's Flower float in the Gilbert Days Parade.

Here's the Ranger on one of our many Gurr Family Buggy Rides!

Here's Ranger Sportin' his winch on his front bumper...It was a good look for him.

Oh, how well I remember all the leg room he offered. That is, until Adam ran him into a tree, and he was shortened by an inch or two.

This is the last Photo we have of our Dear Ranger. It was taken just before he was sold. We hope his new owner gets as much joy from him as we have.
 Farewell Dear Ranger. You will be missed.

UNTIL.......This Guy comes along...
