Who's got the best purse ever?  THIS GIRL.  Well, it would be the best purse ever if it cured cancer, ended child abuse and created world peace so no, it's not the best purse ever but it's freaking awesome.   I mean, just look at it! It was made back in the seventies and the level of detail is crazy, the saddle is even padded on the underside and the little saddle bags really open.  I got this at that same garage sale that I got our deck wood and Ev's tools from so really, it was just about the greatest garage sale ever.

I've talked about Pioneer Park (formally Alaskan Land) before on the blog but I'll just have to bombard you with pictures again.  It's just the coolest place, between all of the exhibits, the train rides that cost very little, all of the kids attractions, the boat rentals, the ball fields, the old building that have been rescued, it's just a really fun place to hang out.  If you ever make it up to Fairbanks, this really is a must see place to visit and hang out at.

It's just a fun place to hang out at with tons of different activities, it was really enjoyable to take the family out and have some fun.  We try to be pretty active and do things, life can't be all about work all of the time, I do think it's important for one's well being to have fun and break out of the usual ruts that we all get into. (That said, we work pretty freaking hard and always have so it is important to take a moment and have family time.)

To my fellow Americans, have a fun Memorial day tomorrow and enjoy the sunshine and to everyone else, enjoy the sun! (Um, hopefully everyone gets a nice day, it's so wonderful to finally have summer arrive.  We hit 88 degrees today and it just felt wonderful after the cold spring.)  Take care everyone!
