Walk Around Bethel

We walked for about 3 1/2 hours around Bethel. From 6th avenue, thru Brown Slough, and then out to the Kuskokwim River. We saw lots of stuff along the way, including people. Everyone was so excited to be outside at 20 degrees after what seemed like decades inside because of -20 degree weather.

Walking on the river.

I told Ruby when the river starts flowing her birthday will happen. Progress towards break up and Ruby's birthday is beginning.

Kristy gave us apple butter for christmas, and I have actually never received apple butter before. But today I realize what a big treat it is. We put it in our oatmeal, and I plan to put it on some rolls and make apple butter rolls. The web highway says you can put in on pork chops too. My thought is that apple butter was probaly one of those treats back in the day that farm kids would freak out about when their mother said, "we are going to have apple butter on our pork chops tonight." I picture these little kids saying "yippy." Today when I said we were going to put apple butter in our oatmeal, Ruby said, "I love apple butter in my oatmeal."

Fresh Salad

I hate salads but if I could get one of my salads to taste like this each time then I would eat a huge bowel everyday. In this salad I ate green lettuce, red bell pepper, shredded carrot, sunflower seeds and broccoli. A little fresh parmesean over the top. What it all came down to was the salad dressing. I mixed a little red wine vinegar, dijion musturd, olive oil, a little dill, one garlic clove and a scallion. Um mmh, so good. :)

Bethel Sledding

see that hill in the background. That is the biggest hill near our house. I had to practically beg Ruby to go down this hill. She liked it once she tried it. Moxy on the other hand would not get into the sled. Greg says that he accidently let go of both of them at the sand pit and they went down a big hill and it scared him.

This is part of the national wildlife behind these signs. The one signs on the right reads " Area closed no public entry. Contaminents and physical hazards are present."
This is the sand pits, which much bigger hills. Neither of the kids wanted to sled down these hills, so we walked and walked and walked.
