Just a little walk through the neighbourhood

Well tonight we heard a funny noise outside. Todd looked out the window to find an excavator knocking down some trees and an embankment. Off we went for a walk. Olivia was scared of the machine and Tigerlily just wanted to play in the lovely smelling dirt. It is in the picture behind Olivia look for the lights and you will find it.

We walked a little further along to look at the trees they had cut down up the street. They had mowed down a HUGE old tree.

Todd was just standing there looking around when he found a bird house that had been knocked down. We have taken it home and he and Olivia are planning to spruce it up for the birds in the spring.

Why are all the trees being torn up in our neighbourhood? Well, there is a new bike path going in. I have mixed emotions about this as I am sad to see these amazing trees being knocked down but at the same time this path may encourage more people to bike instead of driving. I guess I'll just have to think about it for a while.
