Where in the world?

Yep, we took our little family to Alaska! We saw beautiful glaciers. This one is Mendenhall in Juneau.
We did a little hiking.
Built a few of our own inukshuks.
Visited Skagway,
and enjoyed the view from the Yukon White Pass.
We also enjoyed the food.
and the shopping.

Four hammered bangles with clusters of charms that I had laying around. This is fun to wear!

Noe in Noe Valley

I guess it will never get old to take pictures of Noe in Noe Valley!
Here is one of her streets.
and her market.
Some day she will appreciate that!

InstaFriday - Boots!

Today I had to submit an NIH grant application. Talk about difficult. And I don't mean the science, but the 30+ documents that need to be organized, uploaded, collated, etc. Luckily, I planned in advance for my new boots to arrive this evening in celebration of getting my grant submitted. I think they are the perfect combination of rustic and pink.
Noe thought so, too!
Funny, even being a pure Texan, I haven't owned boots since I was 10.
Don't you love how my 20-something year old photo was instragram-ized? And don't you love my mom's floral wall paper and yellow chair? Yay for cowboy boots! Linking up for InstaFriday!

Under the Sea

We took a little drive over the Bay Bridge to visit the Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park. What a great museum! We spent all day in the aquarium.
You really get to see the fish from all angles.
Even the bottom.
The jelly fish were mesmerizing.
We didn't even make it to the earthquake simulator or rainforest. Something for next time!
