Once we managed to get her off the tree in the photos above (after a lot of kicking and screaming), she found this bench and refused to move from it. I snapped a few pictures and then pulled her away, again kicking and screaming. I don't know why she gets attached to certain places, but there's only so long Eric and I can stand around a certain spot before we start itching to move, and since we'd never been to this place before, we wanted to explore.
In addition to giving Hannah the creativity to clamor up on stove tops and the bravery to fly down stair cases, gymnastics has also taught her the simple, beautiful act of using a log as a balance beam.
Then I traded Eric the camera for the baby. Since he was carrying the backpack and Hannah, he welcomed the trade, and since Hannah is so dang cute, I welcomed the trade too.
Not a bad way to spend our 2-year anniversary!!
