Memorial Day 2012 - Mirror Lake

We went out to Mirror Lake to celebrate Memorial Day.  The lake really is a mirror when the wind is calm.  We played on the swings, cooked out, fished a little and took a short walk in the woods.  Pretty good day!

Eklutna Lake

This is Eklutna Lake.  Just beautiful!  The water runs off from a glacier and it is also Anchorage's water source.  (No wonder the water coming out of the tap is so cold!) 

There were lots of little streams and puddles on the shore.  It made the area very muddy!  Unfortunately, the dirt is glacial silt and very fine.  That made it very slippery!  Eli hated it, and I ended up taking him up tot he dry areas while the big boys stayed near the water.

Elijah's First Haircut

Eli finally got his first haircut, just a few days before his second birthday.  I searched and searched for a place with a fun chair for him to sit in.  Will and Ben both went to cute places for their first haircuts, so I wanted to find the same for Eli.  This place was just perfect!  I love the airplane!

Ben's 5th Birthday!

Ben had a great birthday!  He absolutely loved everything he got!  There was even a field trip to the post office at pre-school!
