Home Sweet Home!

Ahhhhh!  We had such a wonderful vacation visiting with family and friends in Washington and Oregon.  So many, many happy memories!

There is much to share, but it will take me some time to get it all written out.

This is shaping up to be a busy week, so things in this space will be sporadic as well.  Tomorrow the girls have dentist appointments (oh boy!) and on Wednesday we're going dipnetting on the Kenai river with a bunch of friends.  It is going to be a long but fun day as we learn how to fish this way!

First Family Fireworks

Last year I was the only one who got up to watch the fireworks, but this year we were all up!  Scott stayed up and I went to bed, knowing that there would be no way I would sleep through it.  The girls were also awakened by the bangs and booms.  They knew there were going to be fireworks, so I think they were sleeping a bit lighter than last year.  At any rate, we all camped out in the living room for a bit and watched.  That's one of the perks of living in Whittier on the ocean side of the building! The girls were both impressed, and I even took some pictures (thank you tripod!).

Click on the photos below to shuffle through the stack...enjoy!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!  Hope you all have a fun and safe celebration today!  Our agenda for the day:

12am--fireworks (Whittier kicks off the 4th with fireworks rather than ending the celebration that way)
11am--decorate bikes with Whittier kiddos for the parade
12pm--parade, ending at the harbor
12:30--community BBQ at Protzman's Pavilion on the triangle
5pm--BBQ with friends at the Lazy Otter
9pm--collapse in an exhausted heap in bed!

{this moment}

{this moment} - A weekly ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.
