Since the family moved back to the Mainland from Adak, I’ve enjoyed several special times with my two youngest grandchildren, Rhianna and Danian, The family now lives in Palmer.
I helped Isaac and Crystal (with kids) house-sit for Craig and Cassie Bennett at their beautiful home in Eagle River in July. It was a cool place for me to spend time with the kids. Below is a collection of photos taken that week. They even have a wonderful creek running through their property with waterfalls that give off a constant symphony of gurgling, babbling water. Until my brain adjusted to the sound, I kept thinking it was pouring rain outside. Then the lovely sound settled in as a peaceful background to the beauty of the wooded, blue-sky setting.
Then again in November, I spent time with Isaac’s family in their new house in Palmer. Crystal and Isaac were busy getting settled in and making the new place into a comfortable home. I helped mostly with the kids – the hard part for me. HaHa. We also had a combined birthday party for the children, Danian turned 1 year old and Rhianna turned 4 years old this month. It’s so fun being a Grandma!
