The "Up" House

source: KSL.com
I am sure most or all of you have seen the sweet movie "Up" by now. Our family certainly enjoyed it and it was the first real movee that we took our little one to see when she was about two. It captivated her attention and touched our hearts. You just couldn't help but fall in to love with Carl and Ellie and their dream.

Recently KSL.com reported of a new home being featured in The Parade of Homes which is a replica of the "UP" home and I have to admit it is absolutely charming. I have not yet seen it in person and I don't know if I will make it down there due to a busy schedule but I just had to share these pictures with my friends! source: KSL.comsource: KSL.com source: KSL.comNote all of the intricate detail in the wood work and then of course the painting their home sitting atop Paradise Falls.source: KSL.com
And the beautiful wood work continues down the halls and up the stairs. source: KSL.comsource: KSL.com
The whimsical arched gateway leading to the walkway is yet another attention to detail. I have to admit - I wish I lived here. :)source: KSL.comAnd of course the hose reel that held tight to the balloons that took Carl and Russell the infamous Wilderness Explorer on their adventure. source: KSL.com

If you have not yet seen this movie I recommend that you do and if you have go ahead and grab your kids and some popcorn and throw an old sheet over the garage door and project it at dusk and watch it together.

That is so cute! Would be neat to make a playhouse mimicking that house, too!
