Memorial Day Weekend

The kids outside of Pioneer Park

My granddaughter, Alicen and me

Amanda and Tyler on the Chena River

Our Memorial Day weekend weather was awesome, and having our daughter, her boyfriend AND our granddaughter her made it all more memorable!

We spent Saturday at Pioneer Park which was lots of fun. The kids seemed to really enjoy all of it. We rode on the train, had 'old time' photos done, and went in all the tiny little shops. Then we went to the Pump House for lunch on the deck, which explains the photo above. The Riverboat Discovery was cruising by as I snapped the photo of Amanda and Tyler.

Sunday was our barbecue day. Steak, hot dogs, potato salad and baked beans. My brother brought over ribs and potatoes later in the evening. A campfire, some roaster marshmallows, a game of Scrabble and a game of Phase 10. Tyler won both games, so I've challenged him for the next time we see them.

We took them for breakfast Monday morning, and off they went back home to Anchorage. The weekend flew by, but we sure enjoyed seeing all of them and getting to know Tyler better. Alicen, our granddaughter, is such the grown up 10 year old, and such fun. Amanda is as she always remains....'our baby girl' but all grown up. We are proud of our kids and grandkids!!!
