Winter Hike

Another thing that was on my Must Do Before We Leave AK was to go on a hike while there was still snow on the ground. This would count as my Winter Hike :) While Kyle's friend was up here we took the opportunity to get a babysitter and go with Leisa and Kyle on a hike. Our plan was to go to Angle Rocks, however, remembering how steep it was when we did it in the summer and how many times I fell on the decent, I thought that it wouldn't be such a great idea to do this particular hike in the snow! We opted on the Granit Tors 3 mile loop. Which provided great scenery along the river bank and in the woods. :) Again, AK provided us with many great photo ops! Enjoy!

So during nap time I went out to the store to purchase some pumpkins. Not the greatest selection; however, I thought it would be fun to surprise the boys when they woke up. I had this vision of us as a family carving pumpkins at the table. Hmmm didn't turn out that way. Kinda turned out that Jeff and I did all the carving and boys telling us to hurry up because they wanted their pumpkin done! They wanted nothing to do with the pumpkins at all... oh well...it was fun to see them squirm when they tried to touch the 'guts' of the pumpkin!!

Doing lots!

With Jeff being home we are staying busy with fun activities and enjoying what is left of our time here in Alaska! The most recent is that we went "hiking" on some trails at the local Creamers Field. The boys had a fun time looking for feathers of cranes and listening for birds that were still in the woods we wondered through. We looked at all the different leaves, and trees and explored the unknown. It was maybe a mile that we walked - good exercise and wore the boys out!! Please enjoy a few of our favorite pictures.

Good Eatin'

Just had to share that Jeff made this awesome kick ass burger. The breakfast burger : Beef Burger with a fried egg and bacon & cheese!! We'll have a heart attack after eating it, but it sure was yummy!!
