Kids at the River House

by Maggie Sefton


When you're five, you actually love  to go outside and sing on a rainy day in Spring


Today,  I thought I'd share with the Cozy Chicks Blog readers and fans  photos of some very cute little kids who got the chance over the weekend to stay at my "River House" in the Northern Neck of Virginia, just a block off the very wide Potomac River and just a stone's throw from the Chesapeake Bay.  Readers have seen several posts over the past few years taken at that property I bought from old friends.




Looking for the Eagle's nest



It's a great escape.  Just an hour and half from the D.C. Beltway and what I call the "Metro Madness."  Most of the people who live there and all along that beautiful river shoreline are what I call "Ex-Pats."  Escapees from the DC Metro Madness.  Surrounded by woods with deer and bald eagles nesting in the trees above, you can feel the city stress ooze right out of your cells as you sit on that wraparound deck.


                 


So----given the setting, the kids had a great time even though it had rain sprinkles in the morning.  Nothing slowed them down.  They kept playing outside.    Here are some photos.  Allie just turned 5, Emma has just turned 7, and John the son is now 12.   :)
