So, there are these really cool pines around the corner from our block. They turn yellow and loose all their needles in the winter. We thought we'd get a few photoes. They looked better a week ago, but we didn't get out there til today, so, oh well.

Kaylynn loves the Shampoo and conditioner bottles. I take them out of the tub when she's bathing. This day I forgot to put them back in. She started trying to carry them around. In addition, she tried to sample some. I guess since they smell like green apple, one would assume they tasted like it.
Kaylynn had grown out of her tub chair. She got to the point where she was trying to climb out of it and it was more of a hazard than a safety. It was still in the bathroom, though, because her friend used it to stand on to wash her hands. (still a hazard, but she's 3). Kaylynn climbed in it and couldn't get out. She was crying. I had to get pictures before I rescued her. You know, cute pictures first, safety later...
When Dee was here we hiked Flattop. I was about to die, well, not die, but it was a workout for out of shape pregnant lady. They would be on ahead, stop to wait for me, and be ready to head out before I got there, let alone had caught my breath. Made me feel better that I wasn't the only one huffing and puffing. It was a nice view from the top. Last time we hiked it, it was a foggy day and we couldn't see much. Don't think I'll need to do it again real soon, though.
Back in September Brandon's best friend and brother came to visit. We went to Denali, stayed in a cabin just outside the park, and went for a hike. It was a clear day and we could see Mt. McKinely, even though it was 70+ miles away. It's the tallest of the mountains in North America. It's the snow topped one. Cousin Levi came down from the airforce base in Fairbanks and went with us. He's quite the photographer.
We had a good visit with Kaylynn's birth grandma and family. She got to ride in the fun car, destroy some Thomas the Train, pet the dog (she was ok as long as she was going for the dog, but when the dog would come toward her she'd get frightened and back away, holding her hands out in front), eat some cookies and a little cat food (high in protein), and got a lot of really fun toys and way cute clothes. Thanks! We had fun.
