An Early Birthday

Camera problem solved! Because Clemens left today for 3 weeks working in California, and since Burklie is moving with her family to Washington on Thursday, we had a family dinner on Friday at the Halterns and B & H gave Clemens and I a combined birthday present.... ta-da, a camera! It is a great camera, more than we could have wanted! On Saturday we forgot it when we went with the youth to Hill Aerospace Museum, but we took it to the climbing gym later when we met up with Clemen's work friend Mike. Clemens has been jonesing for a while to get climbing again. It was a good release for him. This is him on a crack climb (right before he hit the crux). He is hot.
Mike, in their pre-wall bouldering warm-up.

Burklie following in dad's footsteps, she loved the overhanging kids wall.

She loved climbing, and was quite the natural, when she got on top-rope she got a little scared of the height.

That looks like a pretty awesome camera! Happy birthday too! I didn't know you were a climber! Paul and I started climbing about 4 months before I got pregnant, and we climbed until I was 7 months along...and now we go 2 or 3 times a week at the gym in Provo...I love it!
