Weekend Over

For those of you who mentally picture Alaskan residents as parka-clad Eskimos ice-fishing outside their igloos, let me just say, "76." As in degrees. Yesterday afternoon.

The weather was beautiful all weekend so we basically lived outside for two days, grilling and playing and occasionally working in the yard, with several breaks to run my eldest daughter to the soccer field. Her team participated in their first tournament of the summer this past weekend.

Fancy Pants Footwork

Dinner last night: sloppy joes, corn on the cob, rootbeer floats

Thank you for clearing that up for us!

Is that temperature fairly typical for you this time of year? The more I read of Alaskan bloggers, the more I realize that your year is a lot more similar to mine than I would have guessed.

You're too funny Kim. =) I will admit I use to have that vision of Alaskans, my friend Sara and now you have showed me the truth. =) Thank-you! =)

Those root beer floats sound so so good!! =) I had my first ever frozen latte yesterday[Hubby treated me] and I am hooked. =) Guess it isn't the same as afloat, but it was so good. =)

I'm one of those lame people who envisions eskimos, igloos and icebergs when I think of Alaska!!

I must admit ... I am always astounded when you write about Alaska having 'normal' weather. I'm always amazed by the beauty by which you are surrounded.
