Reid's Ride

This is the plane that Reid is always flying around in for work. The pilot, Jerry, is married to Reid's boss, Eleanor, so he always takes all the Forrest Service flights. Whenever I have gone with them, Jerry has always taken big detours to show us Mountain goats or whales. Reid has been flying out about once a week since the beginning of the summer, but will not be going as often until spring.

Charlee's first day of church

Reid the baseball star

This is Reid playing Nintendo Wii at Jeremy and Jaylyn's house.

He was doing a homerun derby and had no idea I was filming him. This is Reid's idea of watching sports on TV.

Ketchikan--2007's Vacation Destination!

The ocean water level has got to be a little bit lower than it was at the beginning of the summer because of all the fish that we took out of it! I am not sure how many fish we harvested this summer, but we had a total of 22 guests come to visit us and all of them left with full coolers! Some left with as much as 100 pounds per person! Not to mention the 50 pounds we bring to trade for red meat each time we come to visit! Anyway, I just thought before summer gets too far in the past I would share some fishing highlights from Ketchikan!

Mighty Hunters

When it comes to hunting Alaskan Brown Bears, the three best options for locations are on one of the ABC islands. Reid and Kirk chose the A for Admiralty Island, located west of Juneau. They loaded our truck and boat on to the ferry and then traveled to Kake. In Kake, they launched the boat and traveled 25 miles on the ocean to the Forest Service cabin they rented on Admiralty Island. They rented the cabin for a whole week and had ferry tickets to return the following weekend, but changed their plans after shooting 2 bears in 3 days! They arrived home, very smelly, and soaked to the bone. It took days to dry everything out! Hunting in SE Alaska (with our annual rainfall of 14-16 FEET) is a whole different story compared to hunting in Montana! They had a great time and are ready to do it all over again, now that they are brown bear hunting professionals!

The Beginning

Because a friend of mine started a blog for her family I have come to realize how great this whole blogging thing can be. I can see pictures and read about what she and her family are doing all the way in Iowa. I don't want to visit my own blog every day, but I do like reading the blogs of my friends and family members. The only problem is that it takes me all night to visit all the blogs out there for each individual family. I really want to see and read about what all of you are up to and I am tired of trying to attach pictures to emails to show you what Reid and I are doing, so I thought we could have one central place to come together. I hope that we will all contribute to this and share it with our family and friends.
