My neighbors have a boy who turned one this past weekend, a handsome boy. Being the overachievers they are, they threw a lovely birthday party for him, not just with one cake, but also homemade banana ice cream, cupcakes and a little cake intended just for August to dive into all alone. And dive, he did. You've gotta love a boy who gets into eating and doesn't mind a little ice cream in his ear.

It occurred to me, while walking around Victorian Village last night, how very differently people there live compared to those of us more remote from downtown (remote by only a few miles, by the way). Here in my neighborhood, we tend our lawns and flowers, live in the back yard during the summer, and can generally invite several people over if we feel like grilling food. And yet, my parents would find my lifestyle rather cramped by comparison to their own, with their sprawling gardens and a forest blocking their nearest neighbor. Still, it's interesting, no?
