Walk in the Country

I really really love where we live. It's beautiful and we're in the country where there's lots of beautiful sights and creeks. Niki and I took the boys for a walk when Phoebe and DH had to work on Phoebe's school project. We got lots of exercise pushing the stroller up and down hills and had lots of fun!!! I took these pictures with my new camera I got for being able to have something easily portable for on-the-go type pictures and movies. It's a Sony Cybershot DSC-WX9. It does HD movies and panoramic and 3-D photos, although I haven't taken advantage of those yet.

I loved this garden gate that led to someone's backyard.

We walked down this path to get to the creek.

The boys worked on throwing stones into the creek.

Here's Niki with Tommy coming back up the path! I bet she'll love that her hat hid her face in this picture. She hates having her picture taken.

This was our view on our walk. This was about a 30 minute walk from our house.

Also proving what a rural area we live in, here's a barn I like which is about a 15 minute walk from our house.

It looks so peaceful. The boys are so well behaved--my daughter would have been in that water in a heartbeat!
love the scenery.

the boys are getting so big. don't you get sad?

I took pics of Connor's babyness yesterday - chubby hands - because he's stretching out and becoming so big in other ways :)

Great shots! Looks like a beautiful area and a wonderful place to take walks. Thanks for stopping by The Motivation Station today. Hope you were able to get everything done that you needed to.
I grew up "in the country". We had about 7 acres on mountainous terrain (relative to the foothills in Alabama), and I knew every inch of them.

I love living in a neighborhood now...the smooth pavement, the sidewalks, the neighbors that my kids know...but I miss the element of exploration. Once they're a little older, I definitely need to work to find some areas they can explore. I think it's an awesome part of childhood. :)

The country? We love it out there! Often we've questioned our choice, of buying where we did instead of buying a dream house in that area ;-).
