pictures from Alaska


So, we have been home for 2 weeks, but I'm just now getting on a schedule enough to be able to blog. =)

Dominic, Brenna and gage made soup while I washed dishes. They had raw noodles and garden carrots in a little bit of water and loved it! Add loud pans and cooking spoons and you've got your self 45 minutes of entertainment! =)
After bathtime. Penny and Brenna had their moments of best friends / worst friends. Penny knew she shouldn't be pushing Brenna, but she got a couple sly ones in anyways. It went both ways all week. They were both stinkers.......cute, but stinkers. This was about 20 minutes before she broke her arm again. I love these jammies...both Brenna and Penny were so squishy and soft in them. =)
Bathtime was so fun! I love the little bums sticking out of the water. They kicked and splashed and the echo's of laughter from the tub were awesome.
Penny called her Roses . I love Rose.
Shoving sand down her splint. OH joy.

I loved that I could just send them out to play. My parents live on almost 6 acres of Alaska playground....the great outdoors. =) The kids LOVED it.

Are you wondering what that contraption is? My dad and oldest brother started welding together a fishwheel for fishcamp. They've only ever had one fishwheel going but they hope to add this one to the cache. =) Copper River Reds and Kings are DELISH!
LOOK AT ALL THE FREE LAND JOSEPH! ITS ALL FRRRRREEE!
They tied themselves together and pranced around. Sometime they would forget and walk the rope into a tree outside. It was pretty funny to watch. Morgen, Bret and Dominic played so well together this summer. I really enjoyed listening to them play! We had a lot of fun in Alaska.





We picked and made (I watched) raspberry jelly
Played with our friends and family
Penny broke her arm again, made a record 1.5 hour visit to the ER
Made a new stroller seat for the toy stroller we have at home
Watched a movie with James that was burned and so it blurped about every 2 seconds
Had a super delicious salmon dinner that my dad cooked
Fed the missionaries
Took a pregnancy test since I was almost 2 weeks late (negative-O)
Made long distance Doctor appointments for Penny to get a cast on when we got home
Went to the library in the truck with a camper on back... why not?
Had some friends over and let all 17 kids play outside together
Went for a walk up to the hayfields with Annie, Rose, Dominic, Penny and 3 of Annies kids
Saw the Caribou at the University...what happened to the pigs?
