I'm BAAACK!

Okay all, I'm officially online at my own home! I'm so excited.....Can you tell? I really have so much to tell you I probably could post on for hours and leave you all either really bored....or yeah probably just bored! hehehe.....


Anyway since I built you all up for the pictures of my yard I will start today off with that for you. I will post pics from our ride up later...maybe tomorrow. My favorite part right now though is my view so I will just stick to that.


First of all this is about all you can see of my house....it really is covered up a lot by trees. Madison is comming down the little path to the beach.



Here is the view of our neighbors if you stand on the beach, I can't really see them when standing on my porch though.



Madison walking on the beach.....
The view I wake up to every morning.......yeah I like it
The other view I wake up to in the mornings....she is an early riser.....

Also when I am looking out at my awesome view I watch eagles flying as they catch the salmon literally jumping out of the ocean in front of me. I would have gotten a better closer pic but he flew away to fast.

Of course the other wildlife we see out there is the tourists coming in on the cruise lines. Ketchikan is one of the main stops when you go on an Alaskan cruise you know. So if you ever do get to do that let me know I can come say hello.....Yeah I know what your thinking...who has time and money for that with little kids as many of you have.

These come around during the mornings during tourist season also. This is a little tour boat that do along the coast to show people more of the island. It comes pretty close to the shoreline and Kelly keeps threatening to moon the tourists but so far I've been able to keep him from doing that.

Okay that is all for now I really need to get something done around the house and catch up on all your blogs.....I guess that leaves out the house, doesn't it? I promise to post again tomorrow with more pics I will figure out if I will show the pictures from the trip up or my hike to get to my car everyday. Or something else we will see!

Gorgeous view! I am dying to see it in the winter and to hear about the trek to your car then! My mum really liked ketchikan when she went on the cruise, and one of the girls I work with was just there last week. The chances if me making it? Slim to none! Maybe when the kids are all grown I'll meet you up there!

Glad to see you have the internet up and running. All but 2 of the pictures loaded for me (so can't see 1st and last). You have the most fantastic views and how lovely for the children to be so close to nature. Who wouldn't love to see eagles soaring. Have you met your neighbours yet? There are a thouisand one things we all want to know but I guess you will be telling us everything in the coming days,weeks, months can't wait.
