Maren's First Science Fair Project

What a process! For ALL of us. She was so proud and happy to see it completed. 
Proud of herself as she should be.

Snowy Snow

129.4 inches of snow this winter!
Our house hides behind the HUGE berm along the street.

The Attack!

Eagle River Ski

Family ski on the frozen Eagle River started out tired and cranky.

Charlie was pysched.

David mushed the family along.

Sadie snoozed after 15 minutes of skiing.

But then the sun shone on our faces and we began to enjoy ourselves.

Sometimes you just have to push through until you find the fun.

Give me an I! Give me a D...


First we watched the ceremonial start in Anchorage with friends and screamed our lungs out.

Front row seats!

Now for the real deal in Willow. This is the restart. Mushers are starting their 1049 mile journey.

This was the scene on Crystal Lake. 
Folks arrived on snow machines, planes and by foot to cheer and party.

Again, right up on the trail to watch these amazing athletes.

Can't get much closer than this!

Snow Day

 Charlie and I hit the trails just as the mini-storm moved out.

Streaks of blue begin to open up in the sky.

Winter wonderland in every direction.

Charlie ran his paws off.
