We visited the Aerodrome (Lake Hood) this afternoon and the boys climbed (Chimnied as Duke told me) up some trees.  We watched a few planes take off and land. 

I would also like to report that Frogman is still alive.  It is a miracle.  I do spend much more of my day catching flies, mosquito eaters, worms and slugs than before.   It is a bit unnerving, but it is the circle of life afterall.

The day started out with an epic battle of the Axis and Allies (there was a discussion beforehand about exactly who were both sides, where and when they fought).  They discarded some of the information and had them using trench warfare and generator shields.  Alas...

 The blueberries harvested yesterday were put into backed goods this morning.  Duke helped me roll out pie crust to make little hand pies.  He placed each berry individually (I had to do a lot of deep breathing) and then sprinkled them with a LOT of sugar.  Tasty creations!
Kincaid found a recipe on the internet, read the ingredients and helped with every single step.  I loved the muffins, but after a few bites he remembered he didn't like blue berries.

Our Monday

We went for a bike ride and stopped to pick raspberries and then found some blue berries as well!  Kincaid wants to make muffins with his and Duke wants to make hand pies and raspberry jelly (we might get one TINY jar). 

And just a few more pics from our cabin trip thanks to Kory.

 Three fishermen on a boat!
 Two fishermen on a dock.
 The stroller (with a flat, but made the roundtrip nicely on the rim).
The intrepid camping crew, ready to hike out in the rain and drenched weeds!

Barber Cabin Weekend

Here are some pictures! 

 Kory and Duke hiking among the fireweed on the trail into the cabin.
 It was hot and the boys had some trouble dealing with the heat!  We took many breaks in the shade.
 The hike in was sure worth it and the boys were soon splashing and nearly swimming in the lake.
 We found 2 tree swings in the woods!
 The next morning was a bit foggy, but it didn't keep us from starting the day with some fishing.
 It cleared up and this was one of the many fish Kincaid caught!
 Looking tough with their machete and hatchet.
The walk out was mighty wet!

Our Thursday

Bowling, lunch out, playground, library and more!

 Playground and then the strange array of books the boys chose from the library.

 We celebrated Kory's birthday this evening, but I didn't take a single picture!  Bad Lia.  Here are some pictures from our Hope Trip.

 Kin nearly landing the fish that gave quite a fight!
Duke and I fishing along the river.
