I’m loving the return of our Sunday hikes. I have been feeling like it would be an off year for hiking, as Lola is too big to pack now and her little legs can’t keep up for long distances–but so far, this little trooper is proving me wrong. She’s leading the charge over her brothers. Figures. But I am thinking we’ll still have to keep things short and sweet. Luckily, Juneau has no shortage of awesome places to go for beautiful views.
Mother’s Day was good this year. The kids were really sweet: breakfast in bed, thoughtful gifts that expressed their own unique personalities, and pretty good attitudes :) Always a plus. They took me on the Outer Point Trail in Douglas to sit on the beach and do some fishing. And the sun was out! First day in awhile.
we saw more skunk cabbage on this trail than i have ever seen in my life! the smell was crazy terrible/heavenly all at once.
leave it to jonah to start the fart bomb war. poor little sweet lola.
Brian, Jonah and I are leaving on a little trip tomorrow. We’ll be joining some friends on a five day boat journey down the Inside Passage. Making a few secret stops along the way to set pots… then we head down to Petersburg for the Little Norway Festival. I’m pretty damn excited to see what the heck happens when you mix Vikings and Alaskans. I can’t really imagine the debauchery! Poor Jonah’s innocence might be compromised a tad. Bon voyage to us!
