halibut fishing

My son and his best friend from Wyoming flew in to fish in Homer with us.  My son is on the right.

Day one of fishing

I hung out in Homer while these guys fished.  There are tons of little shops to entertain me.

Halibut fishing Day two.  The biggest halibut was 115 lbs.  They caught rock fish, cod, and halibut.  We always fish with Polebenders.  When going on a fishing trip always book with a good charter.  It really does make a difference. 

driving the denali hwy

The Denali Highway is a long dirt road that takes you to Paxson.  Paxson is probably nothing to write home about but the views on the Denail are definitely notable.  Normally we see all kinds of wildlife but today we did not see much.  But we had a great time just going on a drive, taking goofy pictures, and visiting with my dad.  I love when you make good memories that you will have forever. It is priceless.

backyard travels — sitka, alaska

I visited friends in Sitka, Alaska this spring.  I had never been anywhere in the Inside Passage and it did not disappoint.  I love the ocean so it was no surprise to see I had a ton of pics of the water, by the water, it was too cold to be in the water thank goodness.

The town was adorable and picturesque.  Little shops lined the main streets and fisheries lined the waters.

I loved hanging out with the girls and Aubree was quite the photographer and was my constant companion on my photowalks. 

Macee had eyes that melted my heart and had this way of commanding and getting your attention whenever she wanted it.

My favorite part of the trip was hanging out with these little ones.  I miss having them around.  Such is the life of a Trooper wife…..we move, friends move, but I always have somewhere to visit.
