roar!...



have i mentioned that how much i love our new neighborhood? not only are the people great (um, we got cookies from the neighbor across the street on our first day here), the homes lovely, and there are many good restaurants... there is also a beautiful park. a park where kids actually play! this was a bit lacking at our last playground. we are loving it. one of the best things about this lovely old park is an amazing zoo, one of the oldest in the country. it is in a lovely setting... and though it is small, it is really well done. we have lions and elephants and pandas (including a new baby!). there is a lovely children's zoo with goats to pet, and so much more. my favorite animals are the giraffes...


one of the coolest things? when we walk through the park to the playground there is a little path that leads to the giraffe area. you can peer through a fence and say hello to them as you pass by! um, living a few blocks from a giraffe? almost as good as having one in your back yard;)

thanks for all your nice comments on the house. i'm starting to feel like it will never get all unpacked. the bathroom upstairs is half painted... and i'm not even sure how to paint a living room with 12 foot ceilings? (i'm only 5'2"!). we are really loving it, though, and feel so blessed. we also love the early spring weather. we had a picnic in the yard, the kids are swinging on the tire swing, we have hung up bird feeders everywhere... pictures of all that next. but first, be sure to come back friday when i am a stop on the blog tour for abby glassenberg's wonderful new book! see you then!

Well that is the cutest lion I have ever seen. I know you are in seventh heaven living so close to the giraffes.

so jealous of your close proximity to the gorillas... i think i would be there daily!

i saw jack black was at the zoo the other day for the panda naming ceremony ;)
