“Pioneer Woman” Ree Drummond might be used to others chowing down her delicious meals, but when it’s vacation time, it’s her turn to enjoy.
She took to Instagram today to share a pic of herself ripping into a juicy, charred hunk of turkey leg. The “Pioneer Woman” captioned the post, “Ladies who lunch.”
Drummond looked totally relaxed and comfortable as she tore into the turkey leg. The sun glinted off her aviator sunglasses and the Colorado mountains rose high in the background behind her.
That’s right, the “Pioneer Woman” left her Oklahoma ranch to take a vacation with just her husband, Ladd. The pair traveled to Vail, Colorado, a popular destination for the Drummond family. Though they haven’t been there in a while, as Drummond shared in another post yesterday.
“Last time Ladd and I tried to go to Colorado together, there was this really bad accident involving a fire truck, and we didn’t make it,” the mother of four (plus one bonus kid) wrote in the post. “So my answer to the question ‘How happy are you to be in Colorado with your husband right now?’ would most definitely be this: Happy. So very, very, extremely, through-the-roof, over the moon happy. (Until he makes me hike up the Berry Picker trail with him later this week, then I will leave his butt on the mountain and drive back to Oklahoma by myself.)”
Along with the caption, the “Pioneer Woman” posted a sweet photo of her and her husband in Vail.
‘Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond Keeps Busy With Kids and Ranch
As if having her own Food Network show weren’t enough, Ree Drummond also keeps busy by writing cookbooks and children’s books, taking care of farm animals, and raising a family of five.
A few months ago, Drummond’s oldest daughter Alex got married in a gorgeous wedding held at the family ranch in Oklahoma. Drummond also saw her two oldest sons, Bryce and Jamar, graduate from high school and sign to play football at their respective colleges, the University of North Texas and the University of Central Oklahoma. Next year, Drummond’s youngest daughter Paige will graduate from the University of Arkansas. Her youngest son Todd will also graduate high school at that time.
So, in the next few years, the “Pioneer Woman” will have four kids in and out of college and one starting life as a newlywed. In addition to that, she’s got to keep up with her cooking show on Food Network. And she has to maintain order on the 430,000-acres Drummond Ranch.
