Reed Lakes

Went on a fabulous hike today with Sara and Chris. We headed up to Hatchers Pass and hiked up to Reed Lakes. It was a perfect day - sunny and warm with just a slight breeze. I haven't hiked up there in at least 12 years, and it was so much prettier than I remember! In fact, i think it is one of the prettiest places in the world! The pictures really cannot do it justice - but it's better than nothing ;)

Elli Marie Courtney

Elli Marie was born at 4:44 8/27/08 - weighing in at 9lbs 5oz. She topped her big brother! She has a full head of dark hair and so far, looks just like her mommy!

Only one person at a time was allowed in the nursery with Phil, so I had to capture Finn's first peek at his new sister through the door. He didn't quite know what to make of her!

He started warming up to her with mom in the picture

Finn may not be too sure about Elli, but he sure loves her pacifier! Isn't he precious? :)

Homer Girls Weekend

Had a wonderful trip to Homer this weekend with some girlfriends, Renee, Gayla and Sandi. We had a great time of relaxing, shopping, and eating and drinking, oh and taking photographs!

Had dinner at Wasabi's, a fun little Asian-fusion restaurant out on East End Road. The drinks were beautiful, and so was the food (It also tasted pretty great too!)
