A Visit from Grandmom, the Film

This past spring my mom, fondly known as Grandmom, came up for a visit in between school sessions. She was able to stay for just over a week and as always, it wasn’t nearly long enough. Mom has visited a total of four times and each time we’ve done something new and different. This time, the highlights of the trip were visiting the Alaska Zoo (my mom loooovvvveeeessss zoos), hiking Byron Glacier, and visiting the Seward Sea Life Center (my first time!). In past years we’ve done the William’s Reindeer Farm and the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center. In she ever visits during the summer, we’d like to take her inside Denali National Park, since we’ve only seen it from the Talkeetna viewing area, which simply doesn’t do it justice. 

In addition to the hundreds of photos that I took during mom’s visit, I also wanted to do another take at home movies, 21st century style. Inspired by the work at Everyday Films, I filmed little clips during all our adventures and put them together to create a film of Grandmom’s visit. And I kind of love it….

Hello Friends

Hey there, I'm Megan, a Southern girl married to an Eskimo, living in an igloo in Alaska. Okay, so it's not really an igloo, but we have built one for fun! Still, our little home is filled with life and laughter, kids and a dog. And I share those gimpses into our life, the horror stories and the most wonderful adventures, here on my little corner of the internet. I love connecting with fellow moms and sharing our stories with one another. So from me to you, welcome!
