Making Family Traditions

This weekend, we went on another long walk around Falls Lake, which is quickly becoming one our favorite new family traditions for Sunday afternoons. The weather was especially awesome, and we like it so much because it is such a blast to take Pontouf with us. We start out at the Dam where there are usually lots of families and folks walking around too, then walk down and around by the edge of the lake.

She'll run off a little ways and then come right back when we call her.
