Drunk on the Boobie Juice!
Think she looks like Daddy?
Drunk on the Boobie Juice!
That's all I've got for today. Hopefully the next Horizontal Mountain Watch picture will be the one we snap before we head to the hospital, and I can post it along with a picture of Green!
Speaking of safety.... check out that set up this year! A PVC tube for launching bottle rockets, firmly attached to a piece of plywood to provide a stable base and launching site for the other types of pyro. I don't have the picture handy, but, believe me, this is MUCH better than last year. Last year, Jason took the "bottle rocket" title to heart and launched them out of an actual (beer) bottle. Having a kid on the way made him a little more responsible this year. Oh, and those look like sunglasses, but those are actual safety glasses. Yep, safety first!
This, however, does not look safe. That's Rob and Brad looking at the directions from one of the packages of fireworks AFTER trying to light one of them which then didn't go off. In their defense - and, again, for safety - they were just making sure they handled the unexploded pyro right.
Moving onto Sunday, we took Fred to Ft. Abercrombie to get a swim in. It's be VERY warm, so he was more than happy to hang out in Lake Gertrude for a while! Plus, then we get to have a shorter walk (all I'm capable of), and he still gets tired.
From Abercrombie (and after a brief stop at home due to a bladder being stomped on by a baby), we headed up Pillar Mountain Road, which may or may not be closed right now. We're still not sure, but the cones were out of the way and we weren't alone up there....
Uh, anyway, this is the view of town from up there. See how green everything is? Gorgeous!!
These two shots are why the road may or may not be closed - our new energy source in Kodiak! Given the fact that we regularly get winds in the 30-40 mph range in the winter time, it only makes sense to use wind power here. These were just installed a few weeks ago, and are already making power! YAY for clean energy!!!
I had to include the "after" picture of Fred. This was after swimming and after wandering around up on Pillar for a while. A tired dog means happy people!
Told ya it was hot! Well, hot for Kodiak anyway! I think we saw temps over 70 today and we're supposed to see similar weather for the next couple days. It's like actual summer! A word of warning for anyone coming up later this summer, though... it can't possibly stay like this, so I would expect rain....

That's me at 38 weeks, 5 days, a mere 9 days before my due date. I think Green looks done in there, right?? I also think maybe I should pack my hospital bag - maybe that's what she's waiting for. Besides that, everything else (including ME and JASON) is ready for her arrival. Hopefully anytime now!
So that's a peak into our Kodiak holiday weekend. We're back to the regular grind now with me trying to wrap up loose ends at work and Jason trying to finish up his latest grad school paper before Green gets here!
