Country Living

This past weekend we had the opportunity to take a short trip with our best friends. We left on Friday and headed to Woodville, Mississippi for a weekend in the mountains! It was absolutely gorgeous...we felt like we were in the foothills of Tennessee. It was only about an hour and a half away which made it perfect because Aubrey is not exactly a great car rider.
I'm dreading our trip to Arkansas in June because she barely made it an hour in the car. After about 40 minutes she started yelling, "Aubrey get out"! Um...not quite dear child!
There was so many wonderful activities and relaxing things to do. Seeing the horses was a favorite for Aubrey. She didn't want to touch them or ride them, but she was fascinated and wanted to see them constantly. She kept saying, "Horsey" all day. These were the friendliest horses I have ever seen. They were so affectionate and willing to be petted.

I took Aubrey out on the kayak and she loved it. It was very shallow here so I felt comfortable letting her sit with me. It was so beautiful and relaxing.
 I absolutely love to fish and this was were you could find me during Aubrey's naptime. I did manage to catch a few! I did almost freak out because I started to sink in the mud and seriously couldn't get out! Notice my mud holes to the left?
This was the view from the back patio...the family who owns the property owns 1500 acres so all this glorious view belongs to them. I was a little jealous!
 Me and my sweetie...enjoying an afternoon snack.
Here is the main house...isn't it a mansion? It was absolutely stunning and I cannot wait to go back!
My sweet friend Corrie bought all of the girls these floppy hats and monogrammed our initials on them as a treat! I felt like I should be headed to the Kentucky derby!
Aubrey and Brynlea enjoying a swing and a swig! Aren't they just the cutest!
Here is a view of the lake.
Here are my sweeties! Aubrey is doing her duck face and showing off her counting skills!
It was such a great weekend. Nothing but nature, relaxing and catching up with friends. The only thing that would have made it better was if we could have stayed for a week! Can't wait to make this a yearly tradition!

  1. Y'all are the cutest family! Looks like a fun weekend. How are you doing? I think about you often. Your posts have helped one of my friends so much that has experienced two miscarriages within one year. You are such a strong Mama to share your story. I hope Aubrey made your Mother's Day special!
