Life's a beach

Sitting here at First Landing State Park awaiting the arrival of Anna and Daniel. We're going hiking this morning. I took some pictures last night, but they were in poor light. Also, Daniel doesn't mug for the camera; he gets all solemn and tired-looking (sorta like his Grandbear). But this one wasn't too bad. For those of you who wonder what Daniel looks like these days (21 months), here he is. Click on the pic to enlarge.

Hiking

Brian had school this morning, so Anna brought the Werecub out to First Landing and we went hiking. Now that he can walk, Daniel wants to go places. And he doesn't get tired and want to be carried, either. We did the Bald Cypress Trail, which is about 1.8 miles. He walked it all. And then we went and found the park playground, where he discovered he could climb the steps and do the slides all by himself.
