Grandma and Grandpa Steele

At Eklutna One Fine, Spring Day

We were so excited and thankful that G & G Steele (Dad's mom and step-dad) could come to visit from Tucson, Arizona. It's been about four years since we've seen Grandma, and almost seven since we've seen Grandpa (which means Isaac and Anna have never met him until now!)
We had a great time together, and I so enjoyed visiting with Grandma and catching up on all the cousins and their families.
One afternoon, we drove to Eklutna and did a bit of mild hiking along the still-frozen lake. Usually it's a bit chillier up there, but the day we went it seemed warmer. There was no wind, and the sun was shining. Except for the mud, it was perfect! (Of course, the kids thought the mud was the icing on the cake.)
Evenings found us at home sitting around the table or fireplace with a big bowl of popcorn, playing games.
Thanks so much for coming, G & G! We Love You!!

These are great pictures! THanks for posting them. I think that kids are all going to know that Eklutna will be a traditional visiting spot for any Grand parent type people!\Love you all.
