Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real Memorial Day!


We had a very low tide on Memorial Day, so with our daddy home we decided to go to Auke Bay right after breakfast to see if we could find any treasures along the shore.

Thank you for serving our country Daddy...

Kelp hair extensions are ALL the rage right now...


Every year our diocese has the pleasure of hosting students from St Vincent College (a small Catholic college in Latrobe, Pennsylvania) and every year we absolutely LOVE getting to know them.  We were very happy to share food and laughter and music over the campfire. 

Lots of hands for helping the littles out...


You see that humongous piece of ice called a glacier in the background? Yep...that water is VERY cold... 

It does not stop them.


We were so very proud of our puppy for taking her first REAL swim.  It was so much fun to watch her hesitate at first and then let that Labrador instinct kick in!

Good girl Nori!

God Bless! Be sure to check out the sweet post that celebrates littles at LMLD!

Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real Alaskan Spring


My seven year old can whip up fairy houses in a snap.  This is a bed and breakfast in our side yard.  I love the bark table with seashell chairs and the little hammock of old man's beard looks rather comfy.


The glacier lake behind our home has thawed.


Sorry for the finger in the corner, but he REALLY wanted cereal. Note the fist full that he has in his right hand in which he promptly shoved into his mouth.


Our littles always need a good rough house with Daddy every once and awhile. Lots of giggles and laughing and the occasional injury...I love  him. 

God bless you as you go about your day!  Please check out Rosie's post on LMLD.
