Trails and Parks at Embrey Mill

November 10, 2020 in Family, Lifestyle - No Comments

Hey friends! 
This past weekend we were invited to go check out all the things the residents have access to at Embrey Mill. Embrey Mill is a beautiful community of about 2,000 homes (townhomes and single family). It is located in North Stafford, VA- just south of Quantico. It also provides residents access to more than 10 miles of paths and wooded trails, 285 acres of open space, seven distinct parks, a community garden, doggy stations throughout the community, a racetrack park for tricycles and scooters and a full-service bistro and cafe.

We were so excited to go check out the Nature Trail System since it was the perfect fall day, you know, that not too hot not too cold weather.

Seeing the world through your children’s eyes is one of the most magical gifts we get as parents. Watching their faces study the colors of the changing leaves, seeing their surprise when they saw a frog jump right in front of them for the first time, and hearing their excited giggles as they run through the trails is simply magical. We even found a pretty little waterfall which was definitely Asher’s favorite part. If he had his way, he would have been in it. Today was perfect!

We also got to check out one of the playgrounds the residents have access too. We had such a great time swinging and playing on the slide. Drew and the boys also loved playing tag on the soccer field.

It really was just the best family day with the most perfect weather. We had a great time just being together playing outside. The residents of Embrey Mill are so fortunate to have access to so many amazing things! I think we might just go back every now and then to run and play on the trails! 

Until next time!

Xo, Krista

Hey! I’m Krista!

Hey! I’m Krista!

I live in Chesterfield, VA with my husband Drew, and our two boys, Easton and Asher. Easton was born with Down syndrome. Easton's prenatal diagnosis was one that I struggled with greatly at first. Once he was born, I realized that everything doctors told me about all the things he wouldn't be able to do weren't true, and I became empowered. I felt the call and need to share our story with others in hopes that other women walking in our shoes could see that life with Down syndrome is not scary. It is filled with wonder, excitement, and joy. Follow along as I share all about motherhood, Down syndrome, our home, and lifestyle.

xoxo, Krista
