    Happy birthday, baby beaver!

    The family of beavers living in the Alhambra Creek in downtown Martinez has expanded for the fourth straight year.

    Onlookers spotted a 3-week-old kit early Wednesday morning paddling across the creek with its proud parents and siblings.

    Even though everyone seems happy about the bouncing baby beaver, the famous family has not always been so welcomed by city leaders, who worried the dams would cause the creek to flood.

    At one point, there was even talk of killing or moving the beavers, but they abandoned the plan.
