I have been meaning to start this blog since Melissa went back to the Netherlands. I think it would make it easy for her to see the girls as they grow. It could work for my family, too, if they want to check in.
In the spirit of catching Melissa up, I am going to go back through the summer. We went up to Byron's cabin north of Talkeetna for some fishing. It was a damp, rainy day full of mosquitos and no fish. We did have a great time, though. Zoey was getting a handle on fly casting and Vivi was happy to play with a little kid line with a hook and bobber. She really appreciated her head net. We were all coated in bug dope and still were plagued by all sorts of flying/biting critters.
It was interesting driving into the cabin. The way in is pretty rough. Let's not call it a road, that's just too generous.
