Mac, Mom and Noah
Austin and Connor playing in the sand.
Connor and Dustin looking for "skipper" rocks.
COLD water doesn't seem to bother Beanie!
It was another beautiful day in Alaska yesterday so we decided to head "out into nature". Out towards my in-law's house is the Matanuska River where you can ride 4-wheeler's, walk around, etc. The boys loved playing in the sand and finding skipping rocks. I loved the sunshine and fresh air. The doggies loved the water (crazy dogs) and Dustin just generally kept us all from hurting ourselves. We spent about 2 hours or so just wandering around before Noah was ready to nap and everyone else was ready for a snack.
Happy Memorial Day everyone!

It's interesting, it's almost like everyone around here kicks into high gear as soon as the first ray of sunshine hits on May 1st! The street cleaner came through, the guy who cuts the branches away from the side of the road, all the people who pick up the garbage along the highways, people cleaning up their yards. Apparently because the season is so short, people here don't mess around! They had it all done in approximately 3 days. Catch ya later alligators!

A quick nod to a new blog I've encountered that I think you will all enjoy. If you have time check this gal out, she is hilarious!! She lives in Alaska and has wonderful stories and insights about Alaska and life in general. http://www.elisepatkotak.com/
