Nanna's 70th Birthday

Yesterday was Nanna's birthday. She wanted to take the younger children to Pioneer Park. So we let her. They went on the merry-go-round. Then they played on the playground. When the big boys were done with hockey camp, they joined us for miniature golf.

For dinner Kathleen made us salmon, rice and salad. Nanna picked out a chocolate cake with blueberry ice cream from Hot Licks. Then we watched Weekend at Bernie's. Tonight Nanna is off having fun with her friends.

This morning Chris and Maya went with Nanna to North Pole. She took them to Santa Land where they met with the big guy in the red suit. He asked Maya what her name is. She told him "Tinkerbell". He said "Oh, I've always wanted to meet Tinkerbell". She has been telling us that is her name for the past 3 days. She also insists Matt is Daddy Tinkerbell and I am Mommy Tinkerbell.

This morning I enjoyed walking around at the Botanical Garden at UAF by myself. Then I took Bradley and Riley to Old Navy for some back to school shopping. Tomorrow we are going to Chena Hot Springs!

Does anyone know what kind of flowers these are?

I was in charge of roasting the peppers. This is what happens when you drink two glasses of wine before dinner.

Looks like a wonderful birthday celebration. Love that Maya's wearing her cute little fairy dress again :)
