eklutna lake

On Saturday, we decided to do something fun as a family, so we loaded up all the bikes, and went for a bike ride on a trail that runs alongside Eklutna Lake.  It was absolutely beautiful.  We made it probably halfway to the glacier, about 6 miles, before we had to turn back because we didn't want Steven to get too tired to make it back.  He made it the whole way, though, on those little legs.  It was really cool to watch James pedal alongside Steven, holding onto Steven's handlebars, helping him up the hills.

What a beautiful picture! And the Mountains aren't that bad either. Man, steven is getting so big! What a cutie! I love his hair and his freckles.

I miss you - I love you - I hope you are doing good. Things have gotten a little hectic around here - swim meets for the past two days at 6:30am and then it's nonstop from there for the rest of the day. At least YOU got to take a relaxing bike ride! KISSeS

Sometimes I forget that in all the preparations sometimes it's good to take a step back and relax.

Glad your family got to do a little biking in a lovely location! Maybe a trip to Independence Mine to pick blueberries next?

Steven, you look just like your daddy did when he was your age, and grandma thinks you are growing too fast. Grandma loves you and is very happy to see your pictues. Love Grandma
