image-14.jpegwe spent last weekend in homer, alaska. not only was it the 4th of july, but also our fifth wedding anniversary. above is our group shot. zach and i’ve have had our picture taken each year on our anniversary. so far so good, but one year it was a poorly lit selfie of us already in bed under the covers.

a wonderful lunch of po’boys and sausages[/caption]we had the good fortune to once again spend time with our friends gary and susan. they have a lovely little cottage in homer. it’s so nice to visit places they live as gary and susan are wonderful at really taking advantage of everything a town has to offer. although we have visited homer before it’s nice to get a new perspective and a local one to boot.image-14.jpegIMGP5106.jpgIMGP4953.jpgIMGP5024.jpgIMGP4971.jpgIMG_7832.jpgIMGP4967.jpgimage-17.jpegIMGP5112.jpgIMGP4974.jpgIMG_7830.jpgIMG_7825.jpgwhile in homer we camped. it was our first camping experience as a family since zelda has outgrown the pack ‘n play. let’s just say she’s a bed hog, but also a great space heater. all in all a pretty successful camping adventure.IMGP5018.jpgIMGP5020.jpgIMGP5015.jpgIMGP5010.jpgIMGP5054.jpgIMGP5087.jpgIMGP5049.jpgimage-16.jpegIMG_7856.jpg the 4th was full of fun activities. we visited the carnival and zelda got her face painted, played games and had pie. then it was off to the beach for some tide pooling. and finally off to the parade where there was CANDY! probably the highlight of zelda’s day. she got to eat two pieces at the parade and by the time we stopped for dinner she was fast asleep.image-13.jpegimage-15.jpegwhat a great weekend and i’m sure we’ll return to homer. zelda loved the beach, the boats and well, pretty much everything.
