Mother Daughter Quality Time

My daughter gave me my fabulous Mother’s Day gift last week and we celebrated her successful nursing career by staying in a beautiful cabin, just the two of us, at Hocking Hills, Ohio. We walked to two different caves, went in the hot tub at the cabin, cooked steak on the grill, ate out, did some sightseeing and we relaxed.

Thank you to my wonderful husband as he took care of the grandkids and showed them a fun time while we were away.

All the pictures are compliments of my daughter.

Thank you, Amy, for making memories we will never forget. I love you 💕

  1. What a wonderful trip. I’m glad you and your daughter are so close. It looks like a great place to visit with cabins available, places to eat out and great hiking! Great photos.

  2. What a beautiful getaway … and even more special to do this with your daughter 💌. It certainly looks like you two had quality time together in exploring all the wonderful places … I love your (Amy’s) photos. Looks like a stunning trail to see the caves – and then enjoy the hot tub!

    • Thank you and he was a real blessing or we wouldn’t have been able to go, he used his vacation days. He took the kids to lunch where they played games for tickets then picked out a prize. Then they went to a trampoline park then ate at Golden Corral.

  3. Wonderful! I love spending time with my daughter – just the two of us. I have Hocking Hills on the list of places for Dan and I to visit with our travel trailer. I know how much you must have enjoyed this time with your daughter! That is great!

    • Take a walking stick or cane if you go to Old Man’s Cave it’s a killer hike. Ash Cave has a paved path and much, much easier. It is a beautiful place to see, you will love camping there. Thank you Betty. 💕

  4. Diane, I am so glad you and your daughter got to enjoy this double celebration together. That cabin looked wonderful as did those hikes and scenery. And that steak is delicious looking! Ditto the pizzas.

    And you and your daughter are spitting images of each other! Love the matching outfits.

    • Awe thank you Ab! The outfits weren’t planned but they were almost they same color. She probably did that so she didn’t lose me. 😂 I wasn’t going to do this post but then you talked me into it, I’m glad you did. Thank you Ab 💕

  5. What a wonderful, thoughtful daughter! There are still good people in this world and that just lifted my spirits! I am so pleased you posted this. Congratulations to both of you!

    • Thank you. I wasn’t going to do a post but Ab, one of my followers asked me too when I told him about it. I’m glad it lifted your spirits, it sure did mine. The next day she took my husband to an Indians game for his belated Father’s Day gift, she has such a good heart.

  6. What a wonderful gift! Not only does the mother/daughter weekend sound amazing a trip to Hocking Hill State Park makes it even more fun. So glad you got to spend that time together.

    • She felt bad we couldn’t go closer to Mother’s Day. She was studying, doing her clinicals, working full time in ICU and taking care of the kids. (We helped out a lot there) She had no time until she passed her classes. It was so nice to see her relax and we really enjoyed our time together. Thank you! Is this Mike or Kelley? I always want to comment with your name. I think Kelley?????

    • Ands she just passed her state board test on the first try. They had 3 hours to take it and she was done in 1 hour 15 minutes, she is so smart! If you haven’t noticed, I am gleaming with pride right now. Thank you Tierney. ❤️

  10. Wow! What a gorgeous, peaceful, relaxing place! Your daughter Amy definitely found one of the best Mother’s Day gifts ever!!! And how wonderful that you both got to enjoy it together for some amazing quality time! A perfect gift!! Thank you so much for sharing the photos! 🙂 <3

    • Yes it couldn’t have been a better gift, it was so beautiful there and with great company! Guess what Anita? Thursday she took her state board test and passed! She can now work as a nurse practitioner. Her new job starts as soon as they send the license. One proud mother here. 💕

      • That is wonderful news, Diane!!! Congratulations to Amy!! She has an amazing career ahead of her!! And I completely see why you would be “one proud mother”! 😁❤️🙌
