It was really hot today, it's crazy how fast we went from 30 degrees to high 80s.  The whole family hung out down by the river for a while, that cold water felt so nice.  Speaking of the water, a few days ago I was talking about how lucky everyone was that we didn't get any flooding this year and yikes, did I ever jinx us all.  As you can see, the Chena River is crazy high right now and is creeping into backyards but poor Galena is really having a bad time of it. My little sister and brother attend school in Galena and I graduated from the school there so we've got some ties to the community.  My siblings had just gotten back this week and it was lucky they'd done so, the road to the airport in Galena has completely washed out and seeing as that's the only transport into and out of the village, they would have had to hitch a ride with a enterprising boater or waited it out.  The town is going through some bad flooding aside from the airport road and I really hope that the ice jams down river breaks up soon and let all of the water through.

Flooding aside, at least the kids got to have some fun playing around in the water.  I suppose I've been posting quite a few pictures of them lately, for all that this is suppose to be just a style blog it's fun being able to look back on these posts and seeing what we were up to. (Heh,  with the tile, you were probably expecting some pictures of the ponies playing in the water.  Little Merrylegs has been trying to take baths in his water buckets the past few days and Im sure he'd love to come play in the river, they're pretty good little swimmers.)

Yeah, I got splashed in the last picture, man, that water felt cold!  It's a nice shallow spot right here on the bank so the kids get to play in the water a little bit, mostly throwing sticks in! (Because when you're a kid, what is more fun than throwing sticks into water?  Obviously, setting said sticks on fire is more fun, but shhhhh, I haven't told them about that yet.)


  1. wow, Katie, that is such a perfect summer outfit! the combo of your white lace top and pinkish shorts is just so cute and happy! and then come all the glamorous silver+turquoise jewellery. a complete cherry on top of everything else!

    I'm loving this summery outfit by you! The lacy top is perfect for an 80 degree day (and seriously? So jealous right now). Plus, bright shorts are a favorite of mine for hot days!
