Last week the kids and I braved the roads for 7.5hrs to drive to Ashland, Ohio to visit one of my best friends, Ruthie!  We had a great time with them, and my other friend Sarah joined us with her kids too!  One of the days there, Ruthie took us to this beautiful estate, where we drank in the perfect weather and gorgeous scenery.  The kids fed the ducks…

Got out all of their energy running through the gardens…
Enjoyed eachother’s company (yes, Jack was happy for most of the day, just not at this particular moment)…

Notice Riley (in the orange hoody)… shortly after I took this, he was standing where Jack is, looking into the water, and well, let’s just say he went for a little swim.  I was standing right next to him and fished him out by his hood.  He didn’t even cry or sputter!  Later that night it was funny.

This is where we ate our picnic lunch.

We toured the rose garden and felt like princesses…

It was a great trip with some great friends!  So thankful for friendships that stand the test of time, marriage, mommy-hood and distance!
