What We've Been Up To (Not Blogging!)

Haven't been much for posts lately, we've been livin'! Summer in Alaska is such a whirlwind--seems it'll never be here, and then *presto*! It's in full-force and we try and pack every moment outside, livin' out in the sunshine.

We hit a family milestone this summer--we can go for bike rides altogether! Spunky got off his training wheels about three weeks ago, so we can all ride...and we do...often! Of course Keiki's wheels are the caboose pulled by Daddy. Can't see him in this picture, but he's in there! Now that we realize the best way is to buckle him in the trailer in his car seat, he can sit up and enjoy the view. Unfortunately, we didn't figure that out until after this photo was taken:

Tony is playing softball this summer! He's having a blast playing...and...

...we're having fun watching and cheering him on.

We eat outside every chance we get...

...so we have energy to do important things--like cooling off in the kiddie pool....

...and gardening...

...and watching butterflies...

...and visiting with friends...

...and lovin' on GRANDMA from Wisconsin!!


Today, we "walked for life"...

...and had a great time doing it!



That is, after we packed up the trusty ol' van to the BRIM with gear, boys, and bikes! (Anybody have a good Suburban for sale?)
