A spring time walk

I feel like such a small town girl. Today my neighbor and I, and our kids walked to Story Hour at the local library. After story hour we walked down to the organic market and bought some fruit, then took a detour across the street to the thrift shop. By then it was 12:45 or so, and we were hungry, so we walked down to the tiny little diner and had sandwiches, then finally got around to walking home. It was nearly 2pm by then, and my stroller was fully loaded down with library book and produce, but I just felt so good! I love the fact that we can walk places! On the way home Canaan was not watching where he was going, and accidently ran his bike into a huge muddy ditch. The first person passing by in a car stopped and made sure I could get him out, and the people who came on the other side of the road waited patiently for us to get out of the way. Pretty much every car that we passed during the entire walk waved, and slowed down respectfully, and I never once felt unsafe, even though I was out with my four year old on a bike, and two two year olds in strollers. It has been a long time since I lived in a small town, and I had forgotten how wonderful it is.
I just wanted to brag about how adorable my little town is. In about 8 weeks, when summer gets here, I will not be bragging about walking anywhere. Summer here will be awful. But... I am surely enjoying the spring!

Awwww....how very quaint! In the summer you can just pull out the sunbonnet and the fans and hit the road! ha ha!
I wish we could walk places like that....just getting out of our neighborhood would tire us out...then there is the hwy to consider! Adairsville is a pretty small town, but we just don't live near the area where you can walk places. Not to mention getting back up the hill in our neighborhood even if we did get out!

I am jealous. What is the name of the town you live in? That sounds like a lot of fun!

Don't you just love small towns for this reason and many more. When I was little my aunt lived in a small town in northern Washington. We used to ride our bikes down to the store and back (with my mom and aunt of course). It was great also to be able to play outside and I know my mom never had to worry about us. We would be out there with the neighbors kids for hours at a time.

I'm so jealous. I technically can walk to Womack, but it takes about 45 minutes just to get there. I keep saying that one day I'll walk all the way over to the library. You know, on the opposite side of the Parade Field!? Ha. I figure I need to learn to walk a lot before I go to Germany, but there's just no where good to walk to, here!
