We tried out the canoe in the local pond called, "Manitou Lake." Pearl was a little scared, but made it through the ride with only a few quiet wimpers and heart palpitations. Bry and I took it out on our own after that and got so bored of rowing the length of the pond that we resulted to ramming the cattails for fun.
We were relieved that Pearl agreed to help the boys carry the canoe, seeing as it's so heavy for them and all.
Here is our classic birthday girl pic. She is wearing her first ever backpack and is obviously loving the feel of it. She also had to be pushing her new doll stroller because that is how she spends about half her time anyway.
She got a new baby doll and studiously tried to feed it with the pretend bottle.
