Dredging Firwood Lake

Now that Baby Boy is a little bit bigger and we have settled into nursing and such, I'm trying to be more adventurous on my own with the two boys. We had a dry, sunny day so I thought I'd take the boys for a walk to Laurelhurst Park. It has been a while since I've seen the progress on Firwood Lake. They have drained it and dredged most of it now. There is still some water in the deeper parts.It seems they are building up some little islands. I am assuming these are intended for the ducks to rest and feed.My Little Helper enjoyed this winter walk. He LOVES sticks these days. Everywhere we go he is gathering sticks to carry around and take home with him. Our front yard is filled with so many sticks that we look like we are firewood peddlers.I love this witch hazel in bloom, as sign that spring is soon on it's way.A view of the dredged pond from the east.The entire pond is surrounded by fencing to keep people out.
After we pass the pond we head back up hill, which Our Little Helper has dubbed Gordon's Hill after Thomas the Tank Engine. He really is helpful and decided he needed to push his brother's stroller up Gordon's Hill.
