Out and About

Brad's sister is in town with her youngest, and we've been out and about exploring our backyard. We've resumed our nightly walks to the playground after a week of sickness then a week of rain. Who wouldn't love this view, just a 10 minute walk from our house?

And, just beyond the lake is our favorite playground in the city. It's built especially for toddlers.

Catie's new "thing": running with her arms stretched out behind her. Maybe it makes her go faster? :)
Nick is always experimenting with new ways to go down the slide. Ooh, look. Woodchips.

Catie adores her Aunt Brittany and cousin Brindy. Here she is laughing at her aunt.

I can do it myself! Catie makes it up the climbing wall for the first time on her own! (Brindy is in the background looking cute, too.)

What a fun aunt!

I can do this too!

Today, we headed out to Girdwood, to the Alyeska ski resort. It was a dreary, cold day, but we had a lot of fun taking the tram to the top.

Brittany and Brindy on the tram:

The sun's not out, but Catie sure looks cool in her shades (upside-down, of course.)

Are we there yet?

The views from the top, when the clouds cleared, were beautiful.

We ate lunch up there and all agreed that it was a fun trip!
