The last 5 or so months

Here is a rundown of our comings and goings from the past 5 months or so:

PinataFest


We had our annual PinataFest back in May. We had it a week after Cinco de Mayo because last year was so cold.



Here is Julian sizing up the pineapple pinata


Here is Thomas getting ready to hit the cement mixer pinata


Of course some of the dads tried to hit the pinatas too.

A trip to the zoo

We had a fun trip to the Anchorage Zoo. The tigers were more active than they had been our previous visits


And we got to see the black bears walking around too


The brown bears had a bear fight






A Clamming Trip

We went on a clamming trip. The kids had fun digging in the sand. We also got to see some bald eagles.



A Glacier Hike

Adria's parents came up for a visit and one of the things that we did was to take a hike to a nearby Byron Glacier

Here are Isaiah and Julian in the parking lot


The boys had a great time throwing rocks in the stream.


Here are some pictures of the glacier



Other Stuff

We went to the state fair and had a fun time looking at the farm animals and riding some rollercoasters



The firefighters came to Julians's preschool to teach about fire safety and Isaiah got to come and look at the fire truck


The boys got a fake mustache


And Dona is getting bigger
