Day 23--Taking Advantage of a Warm Day in January

We just couldn't resist the 60 degree day in the middle of January, so we spent the afternoon at Carderock, Maryland so Spencer could get some rock climbing in!
The only time that Spencer lets me freely take pictures of him is while he's rock climbing, so I took full advantage of his willingness (and the good light) and took a gazillion.

Then I stretched my luck and asked him to pose with Ellie for me. I think he was so happy I'd taken him rock climbing that he reluctantly agreed. Of course smiling was too much to ask of him, but still I think it's such a sweet picture of the two of them.

I decided to turn the tables on him and ask him to take a few shots of Ellie and I. He wasn't crazy about that idea either, but he did take a couple of really cute ones. I just loved how this one turned out.

Wasn't it SO nice today? I loved being outside after so long. Very cute picture of you. He did well!

Looks like a beautiful day out that way. It has turned nice here this past few days with temps in the 40's with some rain. The snowpack is melting quickly. It is good to see the sun again-after a few weeks of clouds and cold.

Spence seems to be enjoying himself rock climbing. Is there a rock climbing merit badge?
