Let's Go for a Hike!

I thought we'd have more snow by now. Look at all that brown space. We need more white stuff!

 There's my super man pulling both boys!

On our way out we were heading into the wind and it was pretty chilly!
Glad we brought the boys face masks along!

What's a hike with out trying to push daddy down the hill at least once! :)
It was really cold but so worth the effort to get out in the mountains. It has been a while and I was missing them!

Thanksgiving 2016

We had our friends Ben, Ashlyn and their three children over for Thanksgiving. We had a great time!
It's become a tradition to have Christmas crackers at each place setting at Thanksgiving and Christmas. :) The kids always love them.

After a wonderful meal the kids played outside for a while then we let them watch a movie together while we played some games.

Fall Fun at the Reindeer Farm

Saturday we wrapped up and drove out to Palmer to the reindeer farm for the last day of their Fall festival event. It has snowed the day before so everything was dusted in white and it was pretty chilly but we had a lot of fun. We went with another family from church and we all enjoyed some time together.

There were pony rides, a hay ride, bon fires, hay maze, games and of course we got to pet and feed the reindeer. So much fun!

Ethan and his friend Josiah had a blast on the hay bales.

Warming up around the fire.

The reindeer with the gorgeous mountains rising behind them.

First Snow

Last week we babysat for a friend so she could pack for their move out of state and now they are gone. :( But we had a lovely couple days with a baby around the house. The boys were a big help in holding and entertaining her. They actually fought over who's turn it was to hold her. :)

Hey look! I finally got a turn! :)

This week the weather has turned colder.  There are still some trees with leaves hanging on but for the most part the trees are bare.
We met up at the park for a bit with another friend and her little guy on Wednesday.

This morning we woke up to the first snow of the season! Is this the year we'll get to experience a "real Alaskan winter"? I don't know but we're hoping so!
