Bagpipes and dancers and bears, oh my!

We interrupt this chronologically presented blog to share some video highlights of our weekend:

The 10th Annual Galway Days Irish Music Festival was celebrated in downtown Anchorage.
We enjoyed wonderful music, great weather, and traditional dance!

Here are the bagpipes playing "Amazing Grace":
(yes, we know bagpipes are Scottish...wasn't it nice of the Irish folks to let them come and play?!)

These young ladies were fabulous! (yes, we're already on the hunt for a school of Irish Dance so our own little lassies can learn to do this!)

While the bluegrass band was playing, some of the children in the audience put on an impromptu performance. Here is Kyra's contribution:

She stood like that for the whole song...until another toddler came up and gave her a big hug which knocked her flat on the ground! Only her pride was hurt but Maya ran in, scooped her up, and comforted her. Steven and I would have done it, but it's hard to be sympathetic when you can't stop laughing.

The next day we drove around base to look for the different fishing spots and found these wonderful creatures snacking on the side of the road! What a treat to watch them nibbling so contentedly on berries and clover. We are hoping to see a moose soon!

O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
Psalm 104-24
