Old Ranch House to Party Home in Mexico

This picture was actually taken in 1995.
My husband was sure that we could make this old house
into a place for family gatherings in Mexico.

I could not see much hope!

Now this IS a great place for family get-togethers.
The bath house was added.

This is similar to a "palapa"... a covered area
for eating and visiting.

It's been the traditional gathering place for some of
our granddaughter's birthday parties.
In the background you see the "aquaduct" which will
soon actually have water coming out of it at the end.
My husband wanted this added for "effect". Great idea!

Here is the view of the actual house. It still amazes me.
We worked with a great architect and all labor was
done by some great workmen.

Rancho Don Pedro, named after my husband's father, "Pete", is truly a place for retreating from busy, hot days
on the farm in Mexico. We'll make a trip out there this evening for some relaxation.
