I have Hives on my Eyes... 5/25/10

I Don't know what happened, when he woke up he was fine.  But by breakfast he had huge hives on his eyes.  Poor baby, he's trying to be tough.
  Brent's pretty good at making the kids feel better.  It's always nice to know that Dad is there to make sure you're OK.

Temple Trip To Anchorage

In May I was able to fly to Anchorage for a few nights for a wonderful temple trip.  Brent took the kids so I could go.  I miss being able to go once a month, so this was a huge blessing and a great gift from Brent! 

Jen & Brant

Brant and Jen were able to drive up from Kenai for an overnight visit and do a couple of sessions with me. 
It was so wonderful to be with such wonderful caring friends again.  Jen got my camera working and left me some fun pictures.... They also left me with some wonderful memories.  That's what friends are for!

A (Hot?) Date In Unalakleet....

Unalakleet on the left, sea ice on the right, snow covered beach in the middle, and storm coming in quickly.

It's hard to get a good perspective.  But we're walking on an dirt crusted snow bank that's about four feet thick... in April.  I remember this seemed like a warm day.
Awww!  YOU make make Me feel like I'm on top of the world BABY!

While the kids were in school Brent and I would go on "dates" during the 2 hours that we were childless.  This is a date we took in April.  I know it was a long time ago, but this is the kind of thing I'll want to remember when I'm old and gray.
My man can walk on water... frozen water.  But he's still amazing to me. 

We're still waiting for the sea ice to completely melt off.  This is what it looked like 2 months ago in April.

Hills and tundra, starting to think it might melt sometime... in the next month and a half... Pretty isn't it? 

Some natives taking their snow machines out on the sea ice.  Most likely headed out to seal hunt or check crab pots.  The locals said they had more sea ice this year than they've had in the last 10 years.
