April Stuff

With the return of the sun comes the end of the snow. Except for a few patches, it has entirely left the property. We are still getting out to ski up high, but dog sledding is done for the year. Once the sunset clears the ridge on the other side of the valley, our daily direct sunlight dramatically increases. Right now it is at about 12 hours a day, 9 to 9. Here is a photo of the sunset just barely clearing that ridge.

Kaya has hair long enough to pull into pig tails. It doesn't look that good when I do it.

Leo is practicing being a stay at home dad.

And, is getting pretty good at riding a bike, the required stick still in tow.

Warmer weather means rainy hikes.

Some day I'll convince Leo that the 2 year old duck poncho is too small for him.
