more Alaska.....

I've been procrastinating sharing more pictures of our fabulous trip to Alaska because I'm just not sure exactly which ones out of over 1000 to share, and what stories to tell....I could probably hum and haw over that forever because it was all wonderful and I want to share everything! So tonight I just randomly clicked through my files and chose fun memories.... Rock painting.....our wildlife cruise.......just gathering around the cabin.....s'mores on a sunny evening (with gluten free graham crackers even!)......playing in the water daily.....Grandma and Grandpa's 59th wedding anniversary dinner.......more cruising (we saw whales, sea lions, sea otters, and many others!).......My dear dear grandfather! Sooooooo good to see him!

We're home....

.....but it's hard to leave such a beautiful sunset! (This was at 11:30 pm when I went out to brush my teeth and use the outhouse!) I have so many fun pictures to share, and I sat down tonight to sort through them but I couldn't make any decisions on what to post, so I went with simple & beautiful!

The kids are finally settling back into normal routine here, I guess life at home isn't quite as exciting as life in Alaska. But they're so happy to be home to see Daddy and play with their friends. And we've all been enjoying the garden....three weeks brought us quite a change there! We have tomato plants as tall as me, so many green beans ready for eating, currants we picked today, and tiny little crook-neck squash growing already.
