Late on the evening before this picture was taken, sonya took her first dive head first off one step onto some concrete. Dispite looks, it wasn't so bad, but the next day, sonya wasn't all that excited about trying to get down off of this box. She sat there for 20 minutes while daddy vacuum cleaned.

The above picture was taken after a three mile bike ride up a trail to a nearby "lake" and park. Then it started to pour. We waited until it let up a little, and then biked back. Of course, the trail was still muddy...
