Pete and my husband went for a walk down the street in our neighborhood with our dog, Pepe. Who should they meet? My neighbor and friend, Mia, with her favorite horse, Royal Oak!(She has about 8 horses, they live right across the street from us.) This is a common sight for us but looking at it through Pete's camera made me realize how used to it I've gotten over the years here. The clip-clop of horses' hooves along our road is one of my FAVORITE sounds! Mia will teach Maya to ride when she is ready...or rather when Mommy is ready!
Current backyard project: Maya's new play apparatus! The structure is STRONG and LARGE...my Dad jokingly calls it "the big erection" project. I think Maya will be able to play with it until she is 20 years old! Just to give you some perspective...Bo is a little over 6 feet tall. I'm thinking of getting Maya a parachute back pack in case she climbs too high!
I'm so proud that Bo has been working on this...so he deserves another photo! xoxo
This is the "Lillesjö" (Little Lake) that is across the street from our house...only we don't have a lake view because our neighbor's house is blocking it. :-( However, this is the view we see as we drive along our road. It was a cloudy day when Pete took this shot so I'll take another one on a sunny day. There's lots of wild life in and around this lake....today I saw a neighbor trying to wind surf on it! I think it is too cold to go swimming in! brrrr....
