Sophia Slides

I took this a couple of weeks ago. We don't get too many beautiful fall days in Montana, so Ruth and I thought that the playground would be a great way to enjoy the nice weather while it lasted. This was Sophia's first experience with slides--she LOVED it. She'd slide down at a snail's pace, but you could tell that to her it was blazing fast.

Sophia's First Swim in Lake MacDonald

Sophia's First Swim in Lake MacDonald

Sophia just loved Lake MacDonald, she splashed, bobbed, giggled and guffawed. She would have stayed in for hours, but the water-- even in the middle of summer--is only around 50-60 degrees, so we had to make sure she didn't get too cold.

Ruth took this one when the three of us went on a short hike in Glacier Park (the Lower MacDonald Creek oxbow hike). Normally I hate to further reduce the quality of my site by posting pics with me in them, but I thought this one might be worth it.

Fortunately she hasn't yet realized that the juice box makes a good impromptu squirt gun.

The sunset was just too beautiful to stay inside, obviously Sophia was enjoying herself.

As smart as I think Sophia is, she doesn't always LOOK very smart.

Its official: Sophia is now old enough to have her parents bad habits imparted to her.

All Fall Down

All Fall Down

Ruth stacked all the blocks into a triangle and Sophia had a gay old time scattering them. I like the look of the motion blur on a couple of the blocks as they're falling.
