Water Balloons

After cleaning up, I found some old water balloons and decided to get Aria outside in the warm afternoon sun to play with them. She loved them so much, she absolutely hated it when I popped them. :-P

Hiking at Garin

On Brian's last day of paternity leave, we decided to take Aria on a hike in Garin park. Even though we did have to carry her part of the way (probably about half), it was a good first hike for Aria (and first hike back for me).
