We had a jam-packed couple of weeks but the best part was being able to spend time with family. Rory and Milo were definitely spoiled by their great-grandparents! We miss these guys so much living far away so visiting them was a big treat! Nothing beats family and we can't wait to see everyone again.

My favorite adventure from our trip was the Saturday we spent at the Cincinnati Nature Center during their Sweet Maple Days event. Being an avid lover of all things outdoors and everything maple syrup, this day was a treat for me. The snowy atmosphere made for a very pretty hike that soothed my Yankee soul which has spent the past three years languishing in the humid steam pot that is Louisiana. We had so much fun and learned all about how maple syrup is made.
Cincinnati Nature Center has the cutest all-natural children's discovery area. Rory enjoyed playing in the tree fort.
The maple syrup tour included a tasting of fresh syrup. Rory would not take his tongue out of the sample cup. No more Mrs. Butterworth for this boy!
And what better way to end an adventure than with peanut butter chocolate malts from UDF! This malt was supposed to be shared with me but I had to wrestle it away from him to get a sip.

Time to play catch up for the last 3 weeks!
I love this sweet picture of my boys and their daddy. Even if Milo looks like he is plotting something.
Also love love love that I was able to capture this moment of Rory kissing Milo's head :)
Their relationship grows daily and it is a beautiful thing to watch.
Sassafras! He gets it from his mommy.
Milo and his Poppy.
The next morning we woke up early (some of us bright eyed and bushy tailed, others not so much) with plans to burn some energy off swimming. This was Rory's first time swimming in a pool and he loved it. He also enjoyed the tasty chlorinated water that he drank when mommy wasn't looking.
