Beautiful Day





































Regardless of the fact that it was a cloudy, rainy day yesterday it was still a beautiful day!! We did our first Butte hike of the season with my good friend, Tanya, and her daughter, Sarah. It was extremely windy at the top and on the way back down it started raining. We made it to the bottom just before it started pouring. Something we sometimes take for granted here is the incredible beauty that surrounds us. This isn't a perfect place to live but it sure is pretty, even when it is raining!
After the Butte hike we went into Palmer for a coffee at our favorite coffee shop, Vagabond Blues.
Tanya and I have decided that we are going to try out or go somewhere new every week this summer. I've lived in Wasilla for five years and have yet to see and do so much. I drive by places that I want to go to and never do, so this is the summer for trying new things! One of the things we are going to do is fossil hunting, I'm really looking forward to that.
I've officially signed up for the 60 day challenge at the yoga studio that I go to. To fulfill the challenge I must go to five classes a week for six weeks. I'm on my second week, with one more class to go to this week. I'm feeling so many changes happening to not only my body, but in every area of my life, including my spirituality. I really look forward to my classes every day and my family is being incredibly supportive of my being gone for two hours every day. My kids see how important it is and they sometimes even remind me about yoga class.

Oh, Heidi! I wish I could do the 60 day challenge! My kids wouldn't be quite so cool about having me gone, yet, though. Soon enough! I've been so drawn to Yoga lately, though. I guess I must try to find a time to practice on my own...

And I wish you could do it with me!! I'm sore today from doing so many headstands yesterday. I've been doing three different kinds of yoga but I mostly like Bikraam and definitely go to more of those classes. In fact, I'm off to yoga right now!

Great pictures! Hunter and I were talking about hiking The Butte this weekend...it seems like an easy hike even Haley could do.

There are lots of cool places to check out around here that I have been wanting to go too. We'll have to all get out exploring together this summer...I heard about some neat hikes up in Hatcher's Pass that go to some hidden lakes...way cool...
