The Limehouse Hike

Such a beautiful day it was today. Gorgeous weather, fabulous company, and amazing scenery. The boys and I enjoyed a 3 hour hike with our friends Doris and Alex in Limehouse. As you can see the boys LOVED every minute of the hike and their explorations. We ended it off with ice cream, popsicles, coffees and even complimentary hot chocolates for the boys in Georgetown.

The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend.
~Henry David Thoreau

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.
~Dinah Craik

the quotes i'm referring to are the one under your loving dogs and the one about feeling safe with a person.
hoping you and your children have an awesome day,
