Let's go for a walk.

We like to go nearly every evening after dinner.
The entire family.
Our town is just so cute.
Want to see?












You should join us tomorrow.
6:30. Right after dinner and devotions.
Sound like a plan?
We'll meet you on the sidewalk.

Come see what other people are "hooked on!"

I should go on a walk and share with you what I see....not near as interesting as your little town!

I could show you a BUNCH of soldiers!!! and that's about it!

I miss taking walks in the evening back in your area! Now I am surrounded by Super busy streets. I love all the pictures!

Your town Is cute!! It reminds me of a place my mom grew up in in Washington state. Thanks for the walk down memory lane :)

Wendy said...

Cool! I used to live in a really cool neighborhood to walk around in. Not anymore though. We don't even have sidewalks here, so you take your life into your hands when you go out. So sad.

Jenny said...

I used to teach in your town, and I occasionally visit old friends there. It is a very nice, quiet town. (However, I do not miss waiting on the trains when I was running late to work.) =) Have fun on your walk tonight!

I love that town you live in and I wish I could go on walks there everyday......Small town feel and it's beautiful!

I love the boarded up garage - actually where is it exactly? My husband is a mechanic, maybe he can open up shop there.....

Sara said...

ok. i live in So. California.
Try teaching Kindergarten students about the season of FALL...

Me: Kids, now, really, the leaves DO change colors and they are beautiful.
Really. They don't just go from green to brown and die.

I wish I could take my class on a walk with you.

Lovely photos! You've had a lot of leaves fall already.

Annie said...

I'll be there! That is about the time I walk in my area of the world!
When I look at the photos of the leaves, I hear the crisp crinkle as feet walk over them.
And the gas pump! WOW!! Thanks for sharing your corner of the world.

Now that my kids are grown I really miss those after dinner family time walks. Thanks so much for showing us your delightful town! Enjoy the rest of your evening! xOxO Nerina :)

Laura said...

we have a little after supper tradition over here too!
While I curse under my breathe and clear the table alone, the kids fight, and my husband sits oblivious on the couch. Then after my husband falls asleep, I bathe and read to the kids,tuck them in, decorate a few cakes, put out school uniforms, pack lunches, then sit down to blog with a bottle of wine.

I like what you do better.

Sarah said...

Love the last one of the colorful leaves.
I heart fall.

Thanks for the birthday wishes :)
