Late summer hiking

 First, we have to admire the splendid shawl she made.  It's called "Camping" because the patterns, in concentric circles, are cat's paw, walking sticks and willow leaves.

Newman's Ledge.

Finn chased a squirrel up a tree.  He badly wants to kill it.  You can see it in his eyes.

She fits right in!

Finn started to learn to swim at 3 1/2 yeas old.  Swimming for him is mostly innate, but he had to get over some "adult" fears before he'd go on his own.  Now when we get to the water he jumps right in.

Here he is going for another jump after a stick that's about to be thrown.

Sooooo cuuuuuuute!
