Nature in the Neighborhood #2

OK. We got out this week, and had a great visit to the pond. Dragon almost sat down in it, which I talked him out of, but then he fell down instead. I have some awesome pictures - and a video that I hope caught the sound I think was frogs. I am really hoping that I'll be able to get a few things posted before 9am Friday morning.

However. Our house is on the market, and we got a call: they want to show the house on Saturday. AND, my brother is bringing in his family from out of town - 1500 miles worth of  "out of town." I'm not so sure that I'm going to have time for blogging. So I'm hoping to toss up a few pictures, but if not, I'll at least leave you with this teaser.

Good thing this is a come-as-you-are party!!

So. To play, here is what you do:

1. Go outside. Take you kids & have fun. While you're out, try to find some "interesting thing." Or plan a whole nature walk with goals and everything. Or somewhere in between. Have fun. Take a picture or two if you like.

2. Blog about it.

3. Come and link up with the linky. It will give you code, which you can add to your post if you like. This will allow us to "hop" from one blog to another without needing to constantly come back here, which I think is awesome!

4. Leave me a comment to let me know if you like the blog hop format or if you would prefer a regular linky.

5. If you want to be reminded about Nature in the Neighborhood (and other posts from my blog, as well as interesting articles & such that I don't have time to actually blog about) then pop over to Facebook and "like" Baby Steps Blog.

Thanks for playing!

Ah! Hero is starting to look like a *kid*! No more little guy!

I know it! It's absolutely crazy. I first noticed it when I took new pictures and was playing around with putting them on my blog - the one where he's on the swing in the sidebar. Buncha eatin' and sleepin' and growing... he's getting big. A little more than a year from now he'll be getting baptized. Can't quite wrap my head around it!

I hope the showing went well on Saturday. Have a great week!

The visit has been wonderful! My niece is adorable, and she and Dragon are so funny together. Makes me happy to see them playing. Wish it could happen more often; they'd be best buds.

As for the showing... we have no idea. The footprints they left in our freshly vacuumed carpet are the only clue we have. Looks like they spent a bit of time in a couple of rooms, but we don't have any official word from the realtor. And no offer to buy. But it hasn't been very long. They gave us 3 days notice before the showing, so maybe they like to do things with some deliberation? We can certainly hope!
