While the Snows were in England we took them to the Audley End House. The Schwartz’s introduced us to this place and it it stunning, puts you right in the middle of a Jane Austen book. We went there a few times, since it wasn’t far from where we lived and just fell in love. It’s the perfect place for a lazy afternoon picnic. I have more pictures from our first trip there with the Schwartz family, but let’s get back to the point….this post is about our time there with the Snows. We didn’t do much but picnic and take a quick walk through the house. It was a quiet lazy day, a perfect way to spend time with old friends. The kids ran and played while we ate sandwiches and crisps and napped and talked. I’m pretty hopeful that Emmeline and Peter Snow planted the seeds of a life long romance that afternoon (will post many more pictures of this next). I spent time admiring the light and how it fell on these beautiful children’s faces. Hazel did the usual: make flower crowns and bask in the romance of it all.
Oh, the light!Maybe a budding romance between these two too? Kind of a large age gap, but that all tightens up after you pass 25, no?
After touring the house and taking way too many pictures on the grounds Jeff and Danny decided it was time to go home and take a nap (since this outing of laying on the grass in a relaxing setting) was so draining. Becca and I shot down that plan pretty quickly and asserted our own plan of heading up to Cambridge. It’s not every day that you’re right next door to Cambridge University. Come on Danny.
Cambridge pictures coming next.
