Beginning...

Our day at the Botanical Gardens - the very start of the outdoor gardens being open for the season...



Easter Bunny - Petra Cottontail...










Discussing important things: snakes for pets, and going to Mexico. Both of these subjects are things that Aleks has decided and not so much things that we're actually working on making happen.
Looking at the sky, thinking about Mexico.
Sculptural seed pods.








A robin.
Bastian has been insanely affectionate lately. Lots of "I love you"s, hugs, kisses... Constant attention. But who's complaining?
Bastian took the camera and managed to snap a photo of Aleks' smiling face, which he'd been hiding away every time I brought the camera near him.

Afterward, we met Papa at the Co-op, where the snake discussion continued.
Bastian said he would like a crocodile, a gecko, or a snake for a pet.

Love the little video...
We were over at a friend's house yesterday and they had in their possession a copy of the Six Word Memoir book that you're in! So looky you, we read some of your words in physical print way up here in Alaska. xoxo
