Happy Monday friends! We got back last night from a little weekend getaway to Hocking Hills Ohio. It's the perfect place to disconnect from normal life and reconnect with family and the outdoors. From Cincinnati it's only about a 3 hour drive and with a baby, that's about the perfect distance before major car seat meltdowns have the chance to happen. Ruthie was such a wonderful passenger this trip and we're excited to take more trips similar to this one this fall.

I found us a little cottage right on lake logan about a month ago and it suited us well. Minus the fact that it was a one room (not one bedroom) cottage, it was perfect. After Ruthie went down we had to whisper and tip toe around in the dark but lucky for us there was a hot tub (and a bottle of wine) that we took full advantage of both evenings while she was asleep. We hiked, picnicked, took a long drive through the country, and explored the area as much as we could. We didn't worry about naps and schedules and it worked out so well. Ruthie slept great in her carseat and in the ergo during some of our hikes. She is such a little go with the flow girl -we so love that about her.

  1. How fun! We used to go hear every year when we lived in C-bus in the fall because the leaves and colors were so memorable.
    Little miss is as adorable as ever!

  4. Linds, the hubs and i are heading there for our anniversary in a couple weeks. We got a cute dog friendly cabin so we can bring the pup. I've never been. we are hoping (weather pending) to do some hiking, and we also have a hot tub and bringing wine. any other suggestions?

    1. That's all you need! Grab a map of the area so you can find all the good hikes and enjoy that hot tub each evening. It's such a wonderful place! Oh. I would also maybe bring food to cook for dinner. The restaurant options are not great. Have fun!
