Last Tuesday was election day, and as usual Gavin's school designated it to be a "teacher institute" day, so there was no class.

The temperature hit 48, which felt balmy! Gavin and I went to the library and Riverwalk:

By the Dick Tracy statue:

Under the Eagle Street Bridge (Gavin loved the echo under there):

Here's my favorite pic of the day:

We walked down to Centennial Beach - frozen solid! 

Sigh, once July comes, Gavin and I will be there every afternoon!

New Fridge

Our almost-twelve-year-old fridge, which came with our house, died the other week. We were excited to get a new one with an icemaker, something the old one didn't have.

Gavin had fun helping to pull all the tape and plastic off (and there was a TON of it)!

Dentist Visit

Gavin had his six-month dental cleaning this weekend! He was excited to show the hygienist and the dentist that he lost one tooth and has a second one that is wiggly. 

He hates the light above the chair, so the hygienist always has a pair of sunglasses for him to wear. He was very brave and told us when he needed a break because as he put it, "There's too many things in my mouth!"

He has no cavities - YAY! Now we'll just wait and see if his six-year molars grow in  by our next visit in September. I think he got the two-year molars at age three.
