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….
