Show and Tell

Today Blackbird is asking to see the street where we live. So here we go. This is one of my favorite shots of our street:

my street

Then there's this:

bambi walk

This is technically across the street from my house, a little walking trail. Laylee calls it the Bambi forest because we’ve seen deer there. One of our friends lives on the other side of the Bambi forest, so this is the way we walk to play dates.

I never want to move from this location. Hopefully by the time we outgrow our condo, we will be able to pass a city ordinance, allowing us to demolish it and build a bigger house in its place… assuming the neighbors don't mind.

"...assuming the neighbors don't mind."

Especially the upstairs ones...

I just got home sick again. When I was a little girl, I spent hours with my friends playing in parks and around my block in places like that. Thanks for posting. Love it.

I'm glad it's not the "Haunted Wood" of Anne of Green Gables!

Thanks for the video. It's amazing to me how much I get out of just watching that child walk. It's like when she was a baby and you would send videos of her sitting in her high chair. I think it's all wonderful!

I love your neighborhood because it's beautiful, but mostly because you are in it!

It's nice all that rain supports such beauty. I love my desert, but it would sure be nice to have shade once in a while.

Darn you, DYM - my sleep habits are destroyed because of your blog!! Every time I visit your site I say "OK, I'm only going to read TODAY'S POST. Then I'm going to sleep." Yeah... it's 3:00am now, and I think I've been reading from your archives for about 3 hours. I've already woken up my daughter once by laughing too loud. You're just too stinkin' funny. Thanks for the laughs.

Beautiful! Stunning! I, too, especially love the Bambi Park--seriously---you live in a fairy-tale neighborhood!

Good luck, however, with the neighbor thing! I don't think they're going to like that fairy tale ending!!!!!

We have walking/biking trails just like that behind our house that go off into protected grasslands. We enjoy them so much. Unfortunately, we just got orders to leave this paradise and we'll be trekking off to D.C. by the beginning of July. I'll be so sad to leave. My four year old dubbed our woods, "The Pocahontas and John Smith Forest." She is CONVINCED they are living amongst the trees somewhere and we are bound to stumble upon them during one of our walks.

What fun woods! I wouldn't be able to leave them alone. I'd be sneaking daffodils in them to naturalize and sneaking ferns home to press. I'm sure Laylee love them!

I love the trees!!! Why, oh why, would my dh want to go live in the brown hills of Califnoria (actual spelling from a Jimmy Buffet CD case).

BTW...I love that on my "bookmark" of your blog, it shows your cute cartoon head! Love that!!!

Looks like you live in a beautiful area. I'd love to have a nice walking path like that next to my house.

By the way, I awarded you on my blog today for "Helping Kristen Cook". :-)
