Walnut Street Bridge

We walked the Walnut Street Bridge, the oldest non-military highway bridge that is 100% dedicated to pedestrians!  There is so much to say about the history of this bridge but it is much easier to click here and read it!

 From the bridge you can view the Hunter Museum of Art (which sadly, we did not have time to visit) and a crazy zig-zag sidewalk.  Across the river there are eclectic boutiques, art galleries and a beautiful riverfront park to visit.  

Gorgeous views and gorgeous weather make for a very relaxing day.  It felt good to breath in some fresh air and get a bit of exercise, even if it was just a leisurely stroll.  I think the best part of this entire week were the moments like this, just the four of us enjoying something ordinary, that is actually quite extraordinary.  It has been a long time since we have been somewhere just the four of us....with no family, no friends, no obligations like tournaments and pre-planned activities.  We were totally free to do what we wanted, when we wanted.  Like the sun that shone down upon us as we crossed this bridge, that realization felt very, very good.

Don't You Just Stay Home All Day?

It’s funny because last night at youth group some of the kids friends were discussing homeschooling and really truly felt that we stay home...
