We love you.
Little Sammy and happy adventures.
We are thankful.
Oh what a month it was! With many adventures and lots of fun! It was full of love and goodness!
We hiked Curry Ridge and tried out the new Kesugi Ken Campground.
Sammy and Ben got to spend two days off together at the beginning of the month! They went hiking down South Fork and biking on the Chester Creek trail! They had the best time together
We played outside a lot! We hiked with friends on the Old Rondy Trail and on the Westchester Bike Trail. Played in the backyard almost every day, spending time splashing in the pool and chasing balls. We spent time at our neighborhood playground where Sam mastered the curly slide, well almost! We also went to the Wednesday Night Farmer’s Market in our neighborhood lots and ate our fair share of ice cream!
The loveliest of sunny days found us up on the Powerline Trail where we hiked in the sun and soaked up the beauty!
We fished the first run of reds on the Kenai River. It was a perfectly sunny and hot day. Sam did great and we came home with a red salmon that we ate the very next night.
We celebrated daddy and Papa and how lovely they are on Father’s Day. In the morning, Sammy took his dad out to Fire Island Bakery for breakfast and then hiked the Middle Fork trail for an adventure. In the evening, we went out to dinner as a family at Bears Tooth.
Ben dip netted the Copper River for the first time. He didn’t get a ton of fish but he learned a lot and will be back next year. Watch out, Copper!
We hiked the South Fork Rim of Shipp Creak and the South Fork Trail of Eagle River one weekend. After hiking the South Fork Trail of Eagle River, we went and played on one of the gravel bars, having the most glorious time. It was a great weekend of being outside in the sunshine.
We hung out in Seward and it was marvelous!
And, oh the snuggles!
And… Sam is now 20 months old!
He likes: Playing! Talking! Swimming in the pool. Being at the playground. Hanging out with friends and family. He likes toys and trucks and his lawn mower. He likes snuggling and being held. He loves running around outside. He loves his swing and his animals. He loves his mama and dada.
He dislikes: Being asked to stop something to do something he doesn’t want to do. And diaper changes. OMG.
He can: Say “mama, dada, wawa, papa, woah, owww, wow, ball and anana (which means iguana)!” He can howl, pant, roar, hiss, and ooh ooh ahh ahh like a monkey. He can eat like a big kid. He can run. He understands soooo much! He’s a genius.
