Elliot Coleman Lydon (aka The Frog Blog)

Welcome to the Frog Blog! Elliot was born at home December 11, 2005 at 11:09 am. He weighed 6 lbs 15 oz at 20.25 inches. We'll try to keep this updated for you...since our network is spread out, this seems like the best way to keep everyone in the loop.

We had the good fortune to travel to Alaska recently with Mark's family. We stayed at Salmon Falls Resort just north of Ketchikan in the south eastern part of the state. We spent a week enjoying each other's company while fishing for salmon, hiking in the rain forest, touring local sites and, of course, eating our fill of wild blueberries, huckleberries and salmon berries. On our way home Mark, Elliot and I spent a day in Seattle visiting Elliot's Great Grandma Elizabeth (my grandmother) as well as my aunt Libby and Uncle Jim in Seattle. We had a fabulous trip and were happy to return home with 100 pounds of salmon and a boatload of good memories. Here are a few:

Rough seas ahead!
