After we got back from our trip to the shore, we decided to take Alex out in the boat. This ended up being the fodder for many, many discussions about "ducks" and "doons" (loons).
Today was 'hiking day'. We started out early, when it was still a little chilly, but we bundled up. Alex was excited to see Daddy's backpack again (she hadn't been in it since last summer). After re-adjusting her straps-- she's a bit bigger now-- we were off. Well- for a while. Then she decided she wanted to hike, too. And use a pole.On a side-note, Grandpa Bob caught a really big Smallmouth Bass, right off the end of our dock! How cool is this!
