Happy 9 Month Birthday, Brayden!

Our grandson turned 9 months old on Friday! He is growing like a weed, crawling everywhere and I can't wait to see him again at Christmas! We love and miss you Bray-Bray!

Guess What???? Quick Fall! Winter is here!

If you look close enough, you can see snow flakes falling! Yep, it's October 6th and it's snowing. We had a whole week of Fall and now it's Winter.
The pups and I have been close to the fireplace today watching it snow outside. Bob is in Boston at a class. Of course - he didn't put the studded tires on before he left...said it wouldn't snow this early........Boy, is he in for a cold winter! :)
Love and miss everyone!

Born to be wild.................NOT!

This past weekend we joined some friends and went 4-wheeling! What a great time! We saw country that you never get to see from the road! We went about 14 miles in, it took us about 4 hours of riding. I loved it! We need some 4-wheelers...hey dad! You always seem to be in the market to buy a car....all I want is a couple of 4-wheelers......... :)

Fall is here! Blah!!!!!!

What can I say? It has been one busy summer! One that I loved, because we had company visiting for much of it. That really helps us survive up here - family and friend visits!
My Dad, Mom and Uncle David came up in early August. We had a great time and I really hated to see them leave! Wish they would all just move up here. Dad, David and Bob caught their limit of fish and had a ball! I sure do wish my Papa and Mema would've lived long enough to come up and visit, although I'm sure Papa catches his limit of fish every day now!

After mom, dad and David left, my daughter, Kristal, Brayden, Bradley and their friends Josh and Lauren came up! They had a great time. They decided to give it all they had and go class V White Water rafting. What crazy kids. They managed to flip the raft and had to be rescued. So glad Brayden and I were safe at the house spending the day together!

After all the company left for the summer, Bob and I headed to Denali National Park. Talk about beautiful! The leaves are turning, so there was gold everywhere (don't panic dad, I'm talking about the color gold in the leaves, not actual gold, although that would come in handy right now!
We saw 9 grizzlies, several caribou, Dall Sheep and a gorgeous Lynx!

Alaska really is a gorgeous country, but trust me - I stay on "ready" for that call that says we can come back home! Stay in touch, everyone - we miss and love you!

House Guests!!!

This past weekend, we had a momma moose and her baby stay with us all weekend! Momma had hurt her leg, so we are guessing she was staying close to people and away from the river where the bears would be. She eventually left us, but we loved every minute of her and baby visiting us...except for the part where she ate our bushes for lunch!!!

Summer is here - at last!

Yes - it's July 5th - I hope everyone had a great 4th! We attended a picnic with some friends and had a great time! We also drove down to Hatcher Pass, Hatcher Pass is only about an hour from our house and we had never been - it is extremely beautiful up there! It's a great place to take visitors! I can't wait for the company to start arriving again! My niece, Kelly, comes up on Monday and then Mom and Dad and my uncle, Dave comes in! After that - my kids and grandson and their friends are coming in! It will be a fun-filled next few weeks, but will go by way too quickly. It seems like winter is just around the corner, when summer just arrived.

I did get to go home and visit the family a couple of weeks ago! I was able to see my mom and dad, sister, Val and all three of the kids and my Grandson, Brayden! I had the time of my life and miss all of them already way too much! Bray-Bray seems to change daily and I'm missing it! Hopefully, we can get back to the L48 before he starts college!!!!!!
