Hal's Induction to the Navy

After fighting with the pesky Alaska volcanoes and some crazy fog, I made it home in time to attend Hal's induction ceremony into the United States Navy!  

I am SO VERY PROUD of her!!

She has worked so hard to meet all the requirements expected of her!  I cannot wait to see where she goes and what she accomplishes!!  I love you, Haley Adele!!

Good luck at Boot Camp - I KNOW you're going to do great!!!

First Fishing Trips of the Summer

We have had a lovely spring and have been blessed with lots of beautiful weather!  David and Emily have allowed me to tag along!  So much fun!!  This is one of our first trips of the season :)

Fishing on the back side of Hog Island :)

Kent gives it a go

oh, hey!!  :)

Mary, the master fisherman :)
Fish on!!!

Another cute lil' baby

she even catches seastars!
 We stopped for a quick explore and snack at the waterfall.  It was my first time stopping here - BEAUTIFUL!


Next stop: the dock to fillet our fishies

Next fun trip out...Just David, Josh and I :)

If you look closely, you can see lots of little jellyfish

Josh and David spent a considerable amount of time untangling this lovely rope!  :)
After Josh and David were done playing with the rope, we dropped Josh back at the dock and traded him for Emily!  And we're off....

We were fishing for Rock Fish and two porpoises were checking us out - they are so cool!!  :)  They were very curious and came super close to the boat.  At one point, I thought one of them was going to steal the fish right off my line!

Sweet Emily

Emily's FIRST fish from a boat!!  :)  "Something's tugging on my line and I don't know what to do..."


So much fun!!  Thanks David and Em!!!  :)
