Bryce+Books=Happy Baby

There is no denying it... Bryce loves books :) We had to make a video of how excited he gets when someone is reading to him and how frustrated he is when the story is over. A side note, this is one of three books sent to him by his namesakes Art and Moira... two very incredible people.

We went to HOMER

So the gang packed up the Subaru and took the 4 and 1/2 hour drive to Homer, AK. This trip was made even longer because we kept having to pull over for Bryce's little "bathroom breaks". Seriously though Homer was absolutley awesome. The B+B seconded as a winery. To all the wine geeks that are makeing that funny face and thinking "wine grapes in Alaska??" The answer is no. They imported the grapes but also used a lot of fruit grown locally. Gooseberries, blueberries, strawberries, and rhubarb. Not too bad!Hot tub pop a bubbly. Caution pasty white Alaskans ahead.Bryce preferred the dry whites buy couldn't pass up a good Merlot.Brandy works the kite. Diva kite ninja.Our room in the B+B.Matt had some issues trying to get the kite airborn.To make matters worse the kid beside us was able to fly his McGyver kite pretty well. There was a farmers market with some good old fashioned bluegrass music. That guy in the middle sure does look Alaskan.
Brandy calls this photo "Mini Matt" I call it "Awesome".
Bryce is a very serious young man.
Happy!

Babies and Grandmas and Glaciers....OH MY!!

Here is a wonderful photograph. I could not be more proud of my son who is now giving his first daps. As you can see in the photogaph below. I am also very proud that my child is able to read.So Brandy, baby, grandma, and i all wet to the portage glacier yesterday!! An hour drive and a .8 mile walk and we're at this awesome glacier!!! Brandy got to test ride her new baby carrier strap thingy.This picture is from just after we left the Shire.Check out that badass hat. A great time was had by all and it only took a short drive to get to Alaska from Anchorage so grandma got to see what the TV shows are all talking about.




Here are some moose shots we just wanted to add. We went for a walk in Kinkaid park and these two fellas came out to say hi.
