Fishing in Alaska

This is Chris and Bee fishing at Hillberg lake. There wasn't very many fish but it was fun.
They stock this lake twice a year, once in the Spring and then in the Fall. They have a fishing contests in the Summer. And then Ice fishing contests in the Winter.
Here is a moose to the left of us, about a football field away.
Here's my Bee running in an abandoned parking lot. Behind him is the ski slope.
We saw this guy as we pulled out of the lake. He is about the same size as the one Chris got last year. How cool is it that we can see this, literally minutes from our house.
He was a skiddish bear...which is just the way we like them. We stopped long enough to watch him walk across the road and left him alone.

Here's another picture of my HOTT hubby!

Here is a big picture of where we were sitting for a few. This is the slope where Chris went snowboarding for his first and last time. It was his birthday the first year we were here. I was el prego so no new sports for me.
So Chris fell down and really hurt his knee. It was about 3 times the normal size. He still has trouble with his knee when the weather changes...old fart! :)

Here's my little Turkey. Don't you just wanna kiss him?
I did. Don't worry.

Here is a block that I finished for Bee Inspired. I hand pieced this block together. Isn't the fabric cute? I hope she enjoys it.
