a beautiful day in the neighborhood

Lil Petunia's birthday present! :


Big Petunia needed a new bicycle, too!

The whole family had an exciting little outing today! We rode around the neighborhood and who knew what sorts of trouble we'd get into! First we went to see why (trespass) a new home in the neighborhood now has a {For Sale--Immediate Occupancy} sign up. We peeked into the windows to see the floors, cabinets, etc. and then went into the backyard to look at the pool. The buyers must have pulled out at the last minute and lost their deposit so now the builder has to unload it. Hmmm...unfortunately this seems to be happening a lot lately.
Then we rode over to the new recreation center and as we walked into the workout room a fire alarm started blaring.
So, we rode down another street with only a few occupied homes and as we were riding by we recognized the wife of a doctor we work with getting out of her car. No, they don't live here (or so we thought). Turns out she left him for her hairdresser and they are living together in our neighborhood. Yikes, ....uncomfortable. We started pedaling faster to get home just as the fire engine blared down the street towards the recreation center!
Who says our neighborhood is boring???

Absolutely positively scandalous... As you know in the Big Easy the first thing we'd ask, "Is the hair dresser a he or she?" ~LOL!!!

I love it!

I am so nosey. I always walk at night and look in people's windows (from the street of course!) to see their decorations, etc.

Danielle said...

I can't believe she left her husband for her hairdresser!!! Sounds like something that would happen on a TV show!

Cute bike!
