We live in a single-family home with a big backyard in the suburbs of Philadelphia. We enjoy as much time outside in the yard and on the deck as possible. We continue to do small DIY projects to make our house our oasis.
We love our street! The number of young families and children continues to grow. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The only noise we ever hear is the neighborhood children playing – football, baseball, tag and bike riding. The kids enjoy time outside together every day. The neighbors are friendly, often socializing together. We even spend holidays together. One of our favorite traditions is our trick-or-treat ritual. We set up a fire pit in our shared driveway and, along with our immediate neighbors (and our extended families), sit around the fire pit and hand out candy. Aside from participating in Halloween festivities, we enjoy decorating our home for all holidays and seasons.
We are close to excellent schools and there are a number of parks, playgrounds and green spaces in our township. We are also close to Philadelphia, as well as a number of other major metropolitan areas. This makes short trips a must!
