"MOM, Mom.... his ear is tore...." Great, as usual when there are loud noises followed by screaming at our house I assume one of the three boys is semi-injured. But a tore ear would take things to a new height. :) But never fear they were talking about their favorite moose visitor....
This guy has been hanging around our house for quite a while. He has a few distinct features that make him stand out. His right ear is tore and hangs limply and his left antler is growing straight down. These challenges seem to not bother him as he meanders through our area, stealing all the fireweed and ignoring the yells of name calling little boys!

|"Hey mom, I've never seen this flower before."|
This is our first bloom from this plant my friend Autumn gave us three years ago! Needless to say we are pretty proud of it! This plant had endured a lot: being hacked down by the weed-eater, piles of snow plowed on top of it all winter and last but not least... Lily the dog.. I guess she is a little prejudice.
It is a well known fact that boys are really good at catching minnows, but a new skill was added today. I have to say I am not fond of it either! It was ROASTING minnows. It's wrong and they really shouldn't do it.... but these are wild crazy boys and I had to smirk a little at their creativity!
What I love about my friend is when I said do you want to swim she was totally up for it! I love that! We had a great time, laughing and playing with the kids! Great reminder that mama's need to have fun, too!

|The boys were hungry after going to the libray|
I am totally impressed by Luke's knowledge of the Colonist. He spouts our facts as we walk around town.... Did you know that is the bell from the ship that brought the colonist? or Hey mom you know this library and parking lot didn't even exist back then.

We had the pleasure of going on a hike hosted by a family at church. We drove to Girdwood with our buddy Autumn then hiked in 2.5 miles.....
We crossed a cool gorge with this log bridge...
Then we made it to our goal.. the hand propelled cart.. BUT the cart hadn't been put in yet SO we will have to return to this destination and give a try another time!
