Riverfront Park

We have been spoiled with some beautiful warm spring weather, but this week it has turned on the chilly side. We all bundled up and headed to the park for the gigantic Radio Flyer slide, leftover Subway bread shared with the ducks, and a river walk.

Slippery Fun

We all had a great night of slipping, sliding, and the occasional dog pile on the ice. It just so happened that the second night Rachael was here was the last night the ice rink was scheduled to be open until fall so we were able to have some last minute fun on the ice.

Our First Alaskan Visitor...Rachael

Rachael flew in on the 18th and we have had tons of fun having a piece of HOME around. The first night we celebrated her belated 14th birthday. The girls are loving having a "big sister" to hang on and laugh with. We hope to spoil her so she will stick around a while and if she absolutely has to leave we are hopeful she will not be gone for too long.
