This was our (me, Gav, Jake and Kari) last day at Goldfish class at the Pullman Community Pool. At first Gavin was afraid to sit in the tub without his safety seat. Now he wanders all over the tub, blows bubbles in the water, and doesn't mind when his face goes under water. Should be a fun summer at the pool.
This is another picture taken at Heyburn State Park. Gavin loved it. He kept saying "this, this" and pointing, literally, the whole time. Daniel loved that his son was showing interest in things that he has an interest in.

Daniel was showing the kids some mushrooms growing on the side of a log. They thought it was pretty cool and liked the feel of them. Daniel's dream of teaching kids about nature is finally coming true.
This is an old railroad bridge built in 1921 at Heyburn that has been turned into a paved walkway. It crosses one of the Coeur d'Alene Lakes and follows the shoreline. Lots of people were out riding their bikes on it. We just walked, but are hoping to go back in the next couple of months for a bike ride with the kids.

We had a fantastic day at Heyburn State Park (5 miles east of Plummer, ID) on St. Patty's Day. It was beautiful weather at a balmy 60-something degrees ;). We had a picnic, walked one of the trails, and looked at the educational boardwalk and wildlife viewing area. Daniel got Gwen a cattail and she slammed it against everything and sent little fuzzies everywhere. We have lots more pictures, but our battery on the camera died, so as soon as we get another one, we will post more.

Daniel loves this picture because of Gav's neck. I love that he is finally getting noticable hair.

We spent a little time at the Little Boulder camp ground outside of Helmer, ID. We had one good day at the beginning of March and decided to take advantage. Unfortunately we forgot that Moscow is at a lower elevation than the rest of Idaho (except Lewiston) and the trails we wanted to hike were all covered in snow. So we just had a picnic at a picnic table by the parking lot. Oh well.

Who's kid is this? This is one of our first blog posts after we got our camera. This picture is one of the first pictures we took. Gwen is a great model. What a poser!

Soooo FAT!! I took this picture while Daniel was at work and Gwen was at school, so me and Gav had a little time to ourselves (that rarely happens). I messed around with my camera trying out the sepia tones while Gav played. He thinks the camera is a game and has figured out that when it is out he is supposed to smile.
