Spring Training

Beautiful spring weather lately; great time for getting outside.

In town, Franklin has been enjoying t-ball lately:

Alas, I'm in class during his practices, but thankfully Emily's been great about photos and videos:

Baseball practice!

Yesterday, we extended our outside fun to include a hike to Barclay Lake. About four miles round trip, and Franklin must have hiked nearly half of it. Few things make me happier than watching him walk eagerly down a trail :)


Found a pretty nice lunch spot at the lake too:

Hey, not to get too distracted, but do you like having a planet with stuff like this? Are you worried that all the money spent on fossil fuels might not be such a great investment? Me too! I didn't have a lot to do with the letter they're asking about, but I was happy to be interviewed on the subject for the Seattle U student paper: take a look, and let me know what you think.

Anyway, where was I? Oh, right—lunch by the lake!

Okay, we're off down the trail...
Until next time, reader.


  1. looks like a great hike.
    When Franklin gets a bit bigger I have lots of baseballs, gloves and bats for him.

  2. Excellent! I'm sure he'd want me to tell you that he's ready now :)

  3. I just love that video of Franklin! so adorable :)
