LITTLE RANCHERS

"My two girls and my two nephews at the Lodge in the year 2000. They always wore pajamas in those days---heck, this was probably 3:00 in the afternoon. Also, there's no telling what Paige is eating," wrote Drummond.

COUNTRY COWGIRL

Drummond reflected on this day in 2011 when she pretended she was going to rope the dummy steer but then turned and snagged Ladd instead. "It's how we show affection out here in the country," she joked.

TENDER MOMENT

"Smoochie Selfie. Actually, we'd been dancing to 'Love Shack' and were really sweaty, so I guess I should call it Sweaty Smoochie Selfie," Drummond captioned. "Weddings are fun for an old married couple like us!"

GRADUATION DAY

Drummond was understandably emotional at Alex's high school graduation in 2015. "She's a graduate! This is before the ceremony. DURING the ceremony, when it was our turn to get on stage and speak to our child, I cried and passed my husband the mic, then he cried and passed me the mic," she wrote. "We are not handling this well. But the rest of the ceremony was just dandy! Ha."

SUMMER VACATION

In their go-to vacation destination of Vail, Colorado, Ladd convinced Ree to embrace her adventurous side. "We've had a wonderful family trip this week and today's our last day!," she captioned this sweet shot. "To go out with a bang, this guy is making me do some zip-line thing over a huge canyon. Hold me."

CATTLE RANCHERS IN THE CITY

While visiting the Big Apple for the launch of her lifestyle magazine, the family caught the popular Broadway show Hamilton. "It was beautiful. Brilliant, touching, poignant, and real. I cried three times. Okay, four. Then we got lost on the subway getting back to our hotel. A memorable ending to our New York trip!," said Drummond.

SWEET SISTERS

Visiting Alex at college in Texas, Ree and her other daughter Paige got to be there for a special moment. "Paige and I went to Alex's sorority bid day this weekend and it was so much fun to get some more hugs in," Ree captioned. "Also, it was precious for me to see that Alex has found a group who will be there for her and have her back as she navigates this new phase in her life."
