We finally got Bear to pose for a photograph. He's proven to be an important part of the Gates Family.
I've been playing around with close-ups. The place I really want to do this is in the National Park nearby, but until the weather gets nicer, Lincoln's toys and books will have to do. The books on the left are the old Disney books from the Mullen side of the family. There just aren't books like these on the market today, for a variety of reasons. But Jenn and I enjoy them as much, if not more so, than Lincoln.
Lydia looked really cute in the outfit from Auntie Em.
And finally, I've found that it's quite tough to get a good photograph of Lydia smiling because whenever she's happy she doesn't hold still. So this is about as close as I can get right now.
