I have been meaning to post photos of our trip to Girdwood for over a week now. I get so tired of saying and hearing about the lack of time to do things. It is all a juggling of responsibilities with... sleep! And sleep is important to me. At any rate, here are some photos of our trip to Girdwood.
Girdwood is a really great, hippy ski town. I have always loved it. Especially going snowboarding there and eating at the bake shop. The bake shop has fantastic bottomless bowls of soup that they serve with large homemade rolls with tons of butter. It is just the kind of hearty food you need when you've been exerting yourself outside.
It also has a big beautiful hotel which is where you park if you take the tram to the top of the mountain. We went on a little hike nearby recently. These two photos were taken at the hotel. That bear sculpture is a little small for real life, but kinda frightening for a toddler.
Some of our friends brought their children along too which was really nice because it is hard being the only parents. Eddie and June were really great together and had fun playing.
This little hug was sweet, and uh, fleeting. And June asked about Eddie for days afterwards - though she had a tough time with his name. (Lelly? Lelly?)
We also just had some nice moments of fresh air and silence.
And good sleep.
