Where have I been?

Well lets start with SUMMER IS HERE! In Alaska we have learned to take advantage of having sunlight, well, all the time! The warm weather and sun means we spend a lot of time outdoors taking the kids to the lakes and rivers, camping, hiking, making s'mores...!
One of my little sisters is here visiting. Hopefully enjoying her visit, too. Though I think she finds us a little crazy.

Also, for a while I was huge and pregnant and it felt like a chore just walking down the hall! And of course my due date came and went with no baby! Luckily she showed up only 2 days after!

Miss Alissa Faith arrived Memorial day morning weighing only 8 lbs. 5 oz.!

We took Alissa to the beach at birch lake, that was pretty uneventful because she just slept the whole time.
She went on her first hiking trip when she was 2 weeks old. I wonder if she is the youngest person to ever hike in Denali Park? Anyway, she slept through the hike, too.
Not like you can expect a little one to do anything else anyway. LOL. Anyway, our trips lately have been memorable enough for us, just uneventful for her.

So we have been keeping fairly busy... besides enjoying the new baby and the great Alaska outdoors, the other kids have been keeping us busy as well. Madison and Liberty had a dance recital recently. They did very well... Liberty got a little lost, but she was still very cute! Christian has started T-ball. His first game is coming up this week! We have also been continuing storytime at the library, participating in the summer reading program, visiting the gym so mommy can get back in shape, and hitting the farmers market when the schedule permits.

So there you have it...Where we have been and what we have been up to.
