mike and dad's trip to the new ranch!

Big news!
We bought a ranch, y'all!
It's a fully functioning property that dabbles in a few different things and we are So. Excited. 
When we were there, Mike found this place right in the foothills of the Andes. It's a couple hours from some amazing ski resorts and is right in the middle of Argentina's famed Mendoza wine country. When my parents came down, he and my dad drove across Argentina to go see it. My dad was 100% sold and he and my mom co-invested with us. 
Mike will be the hefe - the owner and operator - and there is a full-time manager that runs the day-to-day down there, as well as various workers. This means that Mike will be making trips down to the ranch 3-4 times a year to check on operations and make decisions. 
We will be eventually building a house on the property but for now, our primary residence will be here in Texas. My parents have given us some acreage and we'll be starting to build sometime next year. 
We are so excited for this new adventure and will be sharing updates with you on our little blog. Below are a few pictures from their latest trip down there. Enjoy!

  4. Investing in a ranch is a great business. I invested in a ranch while back when our children were younger. It turned out to be a sound investment monetarily speaking. It also has give our children a trip to look forward to multiple times a year. We go to the ranch to verify that things are being handled properly.
