A Veterans Day Walk in the Park

We are so thankful for the freedom we have and the ones who have served and given their lives for our freedom. The kids had no school today in honor of Veteran's Day. We slept in, made a phone call to thank a veteran, then headed to the park for a "hike." We went to Symmes Park which has plenty of trails, several playgrounds, a creek, and bridges. The weather today was absolutely beautiful and I loved spending the afternoon outside with my kids.

Happy Veteran's Day! Let freedom ring in the land of the free and the home of the brave!
