Crab Fest Crazy!

Crab Fest is annual event here in Kodiak. It goes back to the days when as they say Crab was King in Kodiak. Crab isn't as big here now, all though here in the next few weeks the guys from the show Deadliest Catch will be in town preparing for there salmon tendering. We only watch the show every now and then but I will see if I can get a picture.
The weather this year was amazing! I don't think the temperature got much over 46 degrees and there was a fierce wind blowing off the still snow covered mountains in the harbor but it didn't rain, not one day!
There is allot to do at Crab Fest and a lot to eat. You may as well not even go if you don't plan on gaining at least 5 pounds.

Peachie asked for "meat on a handle" which is basically beef or pork with BBQ sauce. They are super yummy! We had to try all four vendors to pick the best ones.

The Crab Fest also has rides. They bring them over on the ferry. We have yet to get to Disney or any big amusement parks. (Just waiting till everyone can enjoy the big rides) anyway my guys were big enough to ride some of the bigger rides this year. There is only like 5 rides but they don't mind they rode this hanglide one over and over.

Here we are just having fun!

After looking at all these photo's I noticed my mom was missing. She came to spend the weekend with us and enjoy CF. Hmmm...I need to find the missing Gramma.

Bloggy Goodness!

I have now entered the world of blog makeover artist! I found a lot of really good advice out there but this spot here was super helpful, straight forward and easy! I did almost all of this on my own, with only a tiny bit of help from the computer guru that is my husband. It was so much fun I plan to try even more applications. Who knew that playing around with HTML would be so addictive? Oh, and I got all of my great backgrounds for free from here.
I hope you enjoy the new blog! We are off to pick up Grandma and go to the Crab Fest!

Nosy Blogging

This is something I love about blogging! Don't you think it's fun to click around on the blog links? I am a pretty nosy person in general-Aaron is not! Anyway I find it fun to see how other people live. I came across a blog with a link to this great idea for taking more pictures. I would love to be able to do that. Photography has always been a mystery to me. I am totally jealous of my friend Becca who takes awesome pictures! I have quite a lot of blog envy if I do say so myself. It helps to have someone to keep you motivated so if anyone wants to try out the picture a day thing I could use a partner. Maybe I can learn a few things about taking better pictures.

April Sunshine Brings May Snow and Rain!

Yes, you heard me right May snow! Not once but twice this month! For some reason I can't find the snow pictures but believe that is certainly not something I would make up. Since the snow ti has been raining for at least 10 days. It's just yucky hear right now but hopefully we can get all the rain/snow out of the way for Crab Fest which for all Kodiakans marks the beginning of summer!

We were fortunate to get off the island this past weekend and go shopping in Anchortown. We rode with Aaron on the AK NG bird.

Its not a stylish ride but its free!
The kids stayed mostly with my mom in Eagle River and Aaron stayed in his room at the hotel! Woot! He had to work Saturday and we left Sunday night but even the short amount of time we had together without the kids was fun.
Here are the kids messing around in the room. They came in to go swimming in the hotel pool.

The rest of the week went well. Eli's school class went tide pooling at Gibson Cove. Aaron and I went along but it was so cold Aaron ended up taking Peach back to the house.
