Ree Drummond shares cute moments with husband Ladd

Throughout her getaway in Colorado, Ree updated her fans with tidbits of all the fun she was having with her husband Ladd. As the face of The Pioneer Woman, she is often busy with a lot of things and this relaxing vacation was needed to take a mental break from work. On her last day in Vail, Ree reflected on a challenging hike that took a toll on her.

“We made it to the top of Berry Picker. It took three hours, we went 3.8 miles, and we gained 1,838 feet of elevation,” she shared on Instagram. “It was hard, oh so hard, and I griped a little, tried to quit once, and stopped a lot…but when we reached Eagle’s Nest, I had the very best burger, which I slathered unapologetically with mayonnaise and ketchup. I can’t feel my legs and my hips are killing me, but it gave Ladd and me a great new memory to cherish in our ripe old age. 😭 I love him, and am so happy and grateful he’s here with me. OK, off to find some Bengay.”

Ree also chronicled a race she had with Ladd. The Pioneer Woman star said that both of them are very competitive and “like racing each other up a random flight of stairs.” Ree took an opportunity when Ladd opened a door for her to race to the top and get a head start. The video of the race is endearing but it took a toll on Ree who later regretted running up those stairs.
