Unwinding in the country

After spending a week in the hospital we were thrilled to take a break at our friends' farmhouse about an hour outside Houston. It's the perfect weekend escape! The kids are loving being able to hang out in the pool and it was so relaxing and rejuvenating. I love being away from the energy of the city to have a chance to really unwind.

We had lunch at a 50s style diner where the waitresses wear poodle skirts and they play old music. The kids got a real kick out of it.

Highlights were milkshakes, the pool and catching lizards. Back to the basics to connect as a family.

There is something exhausting about getting all this fresh air -- or maybe we are still recovering from last week! Every is ready for bed early tonight.
