Finally time to blog...

My (updated) birthday post!

Hunter left for scout camp Monday night! He's on his own for this week, then off with dad to Veges for a week. I'm volunteering at camp tomorrow during the day, then I won't see Hunter for 11 days :-( I'm excited for him, but a little melancholy. With both kids gone and Steve back at work, I'm a little off. You'd think I'd be excited?

Hunter insisted on cooking dinner,
he's a mini Steve, fishing, cooking...
I love it!

...waiting in line at Camp Carquist,
gate opened at 7 p.m.

Hunter vacuumed the motor home.
He is such an awesome helper!

Steve and I took off with Hunter to Chitina again on June 7th. We got the fish wheel going three hours after we pulled in because Steve was on a mission. Well...mission accomplished for the year!We've spent the last bunch of days processing fish. We sent 25 reds to PDX within 48 hours of being caught, very cool.
Thank goodness for Leo
helping get the wheel to the bank.

Got the wheel in by 10ish p.m.

2 fish in the basket!

Seagulls calling after the salmon are filleted.

The boys are off!

Gorgeous except the wind!

A fresh jack king.

Last years king, sashimi grade.

Leo and guests.

We love eagles!

Hunter can head, gut a fish with vigor.

Hunter started with his Boy Scout knife,
it was a little painful to watch.
When he 1rst got to use a fillet knife,
he exclaimed,"that was so easy mom!"Our haul!

Five days without a shower...
...still a fishing babe! <*}}}>< Lucky is a well seasoned traveler.
She snoozed on the dash in the sun.

Marina found out we were going to the AS picnic
and convinced her mom to let her go with us.
It was really nice to see her for a few hours.
Hunter and Marina were two peas in a pod,
non-stop talking and excitement all night.

Ran into Holly and the gang!

Mom and dad pulled out of town headed to the lower 48 last Thursday night. Just missed them, with us staying the night at Beaver Lake Friday night while they were only 9 miles away at the Lake Louise cutoff. We're happy they're finally getting to go on their journey. Dad is driving a huge class c, towing the little ranger behind. It is a nice setup for them to journey across the country.

The weather doesn't look good for getting out in the sound this weekend, darn it. Maybe a catch up weekend at home, rent movies and squeeze house and yard work in between. Steve is at work this Friday to catch up on his committments. We may get out tothe Perdew family reunion in Oregon next weekend...if all goes as planned!

Happy trails all, Heather #41
p.s. here is my yummy dinner...
