Well the first week of summer break is coming to an end.
Boy did we have some fun!
We visited the Alaska Bird Observatory, Little Companion had never been inside, and then we walked the Chickadee Loop Trail again.
No snow and ice this time and we were able to be much quieter!
I have just fallen in love with these trees! I believe them to be white birch. The bark has been used for so many things. These trees rattle in the winter wind and sound like a rain stick at times. On one of our drives we saw buckets attached as they were tapping them for syrup. Love these trees!
Want to know a secret? See how Little Companion is clutching her jacket? Ya, well it's about 75 degrees out, sunny, and just plain beautiful. There are, however, mosquitoes nearly the size of small planes out here and we are both a little citified and don't have on bug repellent, I was also wearing a jacket!
Down the trail we went loving every minute!
We have also been to Creamer's Field. Many cranes adorned the field this day!
Little Companion received a camera in the mail the other day (we wish we knew who sent it) and was busy snapping pictures.
Now as she was snapping, I was snapping her because to tell you the truth she was just a tad bit cuter than the birds!
Do you see the little robin she is trying to capture on film? He actually held still enough for her to get a picture!
We also hit the park for some running and general dandelion picking.
We went and saw Letters to Juliet on Thursday. It was a fun movie for a grandma and her granddaughter to see.
We like to do a bit of reading, writing, and arithmetic in the early morning and then head out to snag some fun afterward.
We will be headed out in just 2 short weeks so we are trying to fit as much in as possible before we leave this beautiful country!
Have a wonderful weekend!
