Summer Time!

Talk to any Alaskan and it’s bound to come up: the amazing weather we’ve been experiencing.  We went from this on May 17th…37 degrees and SNOWING!

And, I’m not complaining one bit!  Summer has gotten off to a busy but incredible start!

It’s kind of bittersweet though that I am writing about our splendid summer on Summer Solstice, which arrived at 9:04 PM (Alaska Daylight Time) today but here’s a recap of what we’ve been up to since my last blog on May 5th (gulp!):

Immediately after school let out, I headed down to Seattle for a week.  I met my parents there and like always, we had to keep them busy.  So we worked on a few house projects (installed a shower and re-did a front porch) at my in-laws’ house.  It wasn’t all work and no play though.  We took some time to explore the Chihuly Garden and Glass Exhibit which was absolutely breathtaking!

Steve then came down to Seattle for a day and a half to visit his family before we jetted off to Las Vegas.  He attended a conference, while I sat by the pool catching up on my leisurely reading.

I think someone is finally pooped after an hour and a half of playing in the water!
