Standard
These photos were taken over Memorial Day Weekend at the Washington Park Arboretum.  It’s still crazy to us that we needed long sleeves and a light jacket.

Following ducks with Dada does help make things better.  However, he did tell a group of people we walked by, "Help, I'm stuck."

Still not impressed with the hiking carrier, but at least he's not crying.
