Beautiful Fall Day

Autumn is here. I love this time of year.

The boys and I went to a nearby park for a little walk and to see the beautiful leaves.

Just as we got started we met two other ladies who had come to the park to take some photos. They had brought bubbles and invited us to play in them and take photos too! So nice of them to let us enjoy the bubbles with them.

They had a dog with them which the boys enjoyed just as much as the bubbles. :)

McHuge Creek Wildfire

About this time last year the boys and I discovered a trail that led up a mountain along Turnagain Arm and led us to the most amazing overlook of the inlet and mountains. We started calling it "our spot". You can see the post from that hike here.

Back in July we had a huge wild fire burning right outside the city of Anchorage. Thankfully it was contained in the Chugach State Park and didn't damage any homes or lives, though it came close! It came all the way to "our spot" and a little bit father. We took a hike up there yesterday since for the first time since the fire. It was interesting to see the fire damage. How some trees were fine while the one next to it was burnt.

After the hike we spent some time playing in the creek.


Here are some before and after shots just for reference. Both taken in September a year apart.

Alaska State Fair

This security guard saw the kids running through the puddles and joined right in. :)

We went to the Fair with my friend Samantha and her two girls. I met Samantha through a Lilla Rose party. That's the best part of my business, meeting and making friends with so many amazing ladies who I never would have met if not for these fabulous little hair clips. :)
