Emma visited her first friendly library*. We got two books for easy reading, one book for many cozy nights of reading and two books for Daddy.
*We tried the Plymouth library first but the policies and librarian were not friendly. We found instead the FABULOUS Gordon-Nash library. It has the extra bonus of a nice lawn out front to enjoy the new books in. The librarians were friendly and very helpful.
A Foot in the Mouth is on the right in photo. The poems are really fun to read and the illustrations are eye catching. I am seriously considering buying this book, even though it has no sled dogs in it.
Alex and Lulu is on the left. The story is subtle, sweet and perfect. The illustrations are pretty adorable. This book has a nice message and is well written. I loved it, I think this one is going on our wish list too.

Emma, Aunt Lidia and I went for a short hike today. It was Emma's first time on terrain too bumpy and steep for the baby jogger. She napped through most of it in the baby carrier but did enjoy some of it. Lidia stuck Emma's toes into the shore of the brook, which was probably the highlight for Emma. We managed to not loose any binkies on the trail. I wish we had pictures but the batteries went dead.
