We live in a pretty typically suburban neighborhood. Lots of houses, trees, lawns, kids, sidewalks, etc. But we're at the southern edge of our southern suburb, and beyond us is a more rural area. As a result, some parts of the neighborhood are bordered by woods and creeks.

Yesterday I took Lane (who just turned 9!) down to the creek because he wanted some snails. Generally, it's hard to take pictures of Lane because he mugs for the camera. But he was so absorbed by his task that I was able to take a number of nice pictures. Here are two of them.

Cute Pics!

They have, unfortunately, messed up the formatting of your blog roll on IE6+ WinXP. But fun to see nontheless.

Dear Liz:

I wanted to write you, but found no "contact me" info on your blog. Anyway, I saw your site in my referrers log, and thought you were neat.

Regards.

Belatedly, thanks for all the nice comments. And thanks in particular for the link to the snail site, Chris!

Very nice pictures. It looks like spring has finally sprung for you in New York. Makes me home sick. I've lived in Arizona for one year now (we moved from Rochester) and it hasn't rained since February here. I really miss the green trees and creeks.

Thanks for sharing Lane with us.
