The 52-year-old shared a number of snaps and videos on Instagram to document her trip to Colorado with Ladd.
Alongside a selfie of the married couple posing on the vacation, the TV personality wrote: “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.
“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.) ❤️”
The Pioneer Woman star further spoke about the well-earned vacation in a blog post, which was published on Sunday.
After stating how “excited” she was for the couple’s trip, Ree continued: “We tried in March to make this same trip. I had already started packing, I was so excited about it. And okay, I hadn’t just started packing…I was pretty much packed and not quite waiting by the door since the trip was still two days away, but psychologically I was definitely waiting by the door. But then Ladd was in a terrible accident and we obviously weren’t able to go.”
LADD’S ‘TERRIBLE ACCIDENT’
Back in March, Ladd and her nephew, Caleb, were involved in a collision while battling a grass fire on their family’s Oklahoma ranch.
Ree’s husband broke his neck in the horrific truck smash, while Caleb, 21, suffered injuries to his head, internal torso, arm and leg in the accident when he was thrown 70 feet from his emergency vehicle, after colliding with another fire truck.
MAKING THE MOST OF THE SITUATION
She continued in the blog post: “Missing our vacation was certainly at the bottom of our list of concerns at the time since Ladd was in the hospital recovering from his emergency neck surgery…but as he started healing and getting better, we had to chuckle that the accident had happened right before our trip, because something had seemed to interrupt our being able to take three previously planned Colorado trips together.
“We might have just given up on trying, but I’m stubborn and so is he, so we decided to make plans one last time and see if we were able to make it happen.”
Ree then said she and Ladd were enjoying the trip, writing: “I know we’re only a few hours in, but we really are having a whale of a time so far. We kinda miss having all the kids here, but we’re also enjoying our first non-work related trip alone together since… Since… Since I can’t remember! So Drummond kids, take care of one another, don’t forget your mom and dad,”
The couple are the parents to four kids and a foster child: Alex, 24, Paige, 21, Bryce, 18, Jamar, 18, and Todd, 17.
