We have had a couple family visits recently. My sister Diana and her friend Meghan (she brought her accordion) just came out to visit us in Fairbanks, which was really nice. One day Di, Wendy and I went out for a run and the following day Di and I went for a ski with the dogs out on the Tanana. Here are a couple photos that we took while out skiing.
The mighty Diana at a hot chocolate break...
And below, Tia and I. Gotta love the awkward mid-stride arm position. Nonetheless, a lot of action in this photo. I like it.

About a week after Di came out, Wendy, Tommy and I traveled out to DC to spend time with my grandmother. We had a good time, pretty low key. Grandmother was not feeling well, so our visits were relatively short but wonderful. Inspiring to be around our elders, especially a woman who has contributed so much to this world, and to our family. An immensely talented wordsmith.

We visited the Holocaust Museum, the Museum of American History, the Lincoln Memorial, and the World War II memorial among many other places.
