Sunniest Summer Ever

It has been a long while since I've posted.  Alaskans have been enjoying one of the sunniest summers many people can remember and have been too busy to sit and blog.  Here are a number of photos highlighting some of those sunny times.

Leo scooping bugs out of a tributary to the Eagle River.
 Local lakes were warm enough to swim and both kids took advantage.
 We purchased a raft and have been getting out on it every possible chance.
 Leo especially loves getting out in the boat.
 Sunning themselves after a long float.
 The kids hanging out in the sun during this years dip netting adventure.
 Zipline and sprinkler fun.
 Leo and a buddy on the annual backpacking trip to Symphony lake.
 Leo catching his first fish on a flyrod.
 Kaya posing on a hike at Hatcher pass.
 My parents on a recent trip to Idaho.
 And finally, all this sun has made our gardens grow.
Now we are looking forward to berry picking and the eventual return to snow.  There is always something to look forward to in Alaska.
