Christine, Colm, Bran, and Lyra came to visit Anchorage in March of 2015. We went to the ceremonial start of the Iditarod together and they stayed a few days at our house and a few days at the Captain Cook Hotel, which we got to visit. I remember being excited to have a little girl in my house so I could do fun braids in her hair, but Lyra had recently gotten her hair cut short. Christine was so happy and proud that Lyra had chosen a shorter hair cut because Lyra wanted her hair to be like Christine's. Lyra's hair turned out not to be too short, and I was still able to braid it.
