It's an almost all thrifted outfit? Ahh, if only it wasn't for those silly rings and the earrings....but how do you say no to a elephant ring? I certainly can't. I know I've mentioned it before but there's a special place in my heart for elephants, my godmother collected little elephant figurines and loved the animals so much. I always think of her when I find little elephant items and what a wonderful and meaningful person she's been in my life.
We've been pretty active this spring, what with working on the new house and all of the fun stuff that goes along with that but we've almost done a better job of just getting out and doing stuff. Ev's had such a crazy schedule the past few years and before that I worked crazy hours and none of our schedules lined up. This year is quite a bit quieter so far and it's been really nice getting to spend more time with him. We're all set to head down to Chitna for the yearly fishing trip in a few weeks and everyone's looking forward to that! We had to buy a new tent today though, the old one finally bit the dust. I still need to go pick up the fishing licenses and start getting all of the gear ready though, it seems crazy the amount of things you need to take on a trip when you have kids. when you're all on your own all you really need is some canned food, a sleeping bag and a tarp and you're good. With kids, it's like preparing a army for war. (And we still forget that silly can opener, everything single time.)
Um, I sort of got side tracked there. We have been getting out quite a bit, today Ev had most of the day off so we took the kids a hiked up around the back of UAF's trails. (Hiked is a bad word, the trails are so easy, it's more like gentle walking.)
I'm going to put up the next Alaska post tomorrow morning, I was going to try for tonight but I've reread it so many times now that my eyes are crossing and I'm typing Alaska as Aslka. Huge thank you to Keit for keeping me on top of things! (You so rock.)
