While in Seattle, Linden experienced a number of "firsts". Here's a brief list:
First time at Pike's Place...
First solo trip captaining a canoe...
First flattering mirror... (the same can't be said for mom and dad)
First roller coaster (Priceless expression... I promise she enjoyed the first half).
First time driving (note the hands at 4 and 8 o'clock...).
First nap in a backpack.
First baseball game (The Yankees scored 2 in the 9th to beat the Mariners 3-1).
AND her first time dipping her toes into an ice cold river...
Life is at it's best when experiencing "firsts". Especially when you experience them vicariously through your own child.
