Last weekend Heather wanted to see her brother, Jared, before he headed back home to Sterling, Alaska. We are still under lock down and social distancing. We know we can visit in our backyard with making sure to stay 6′ between us. It was hard to not touch the girls though.Continue reading “Backyard Granddaughters”
David and I enjoy watching our little girls, Bekka and Kate, growing up. The new things they do everyday just amazes us. We have many wonderful days with them.
The girls love hanging out on our stairs with Mom.
They really enjoy being outside and learning all about what you can do with a stick.
I hope you get a little joy out of these photos because they sure put a lot of joy in our life.
Thanks for stopping by!
We have been checking out all the different happenings in downtown York. We went to checkout FestivICE.
The day started getting the girls dressed in their winter gear. I remember doing this with all my kids. By the time you got number 5 dressed number one was coming back in.
There were quite a few ice sculptures. They were so small compared to the ones in Alaska.
The girls enjoyed looking at the ice sculptures and even got to sit in an Ice throne.
Kate and Bekka loved the huge bubble.
The girls got to meet the local mascots. A Raven and the Abominable Snowman.
The best thing was the 40ft ice slide.
Bekka really enjoyed it so Mommy took her back for another ride while Daddy and Grandpa watched Kate. Mommy had to take her because Daddy barely fit on the slide.
I just had to get a photo of the radio DJ’s coat.
These were painted on a wall. They tell some of the odd history of York. Be sure to read what they say.
It was a small festival but we enjoyed it. I think it had a lot to do with watching the reactions of our granddaughters, Kate and Bekka.
Thanks for stopping by.
I am so far behind in my blogging that I decided today is the day I need to catch up, so here we go starting with Christmas.
This is our granddaughter’s second Christmas they are 22 months old this year. They are so much more into it than last year. In fact, last year there was so much family gathered for their first Christmas they had to nap in between present opening.
Of course we have to start out with the decorating of the tree.Continue reading “So Far Behind”
The students studying Japanese at UAA, University of Alaska Anchorage, had an afternoon of Japanese food, green tea, Pikachu, Tai Chai and other activities to try or watch.
Being that my husband, David’s, Dad spent the first 11 years of his life in Japan because his parents were missionaries there., so David has always been interested in Japanese things. They even started a food co-op which the last we heard was still going.Continue reading “Japanese Infusion”
