The One You've All Been Waiting For . . . ALASKA

For those of you that don't know yet, we did finally make it to Alaska. It is so beautiful here! There is no way you can be in a place like this and not KNOW that there is a Great Creator in charge!


So, we flew into Anchorage on January 8th. We spent the next day and a half picking up Sebastian (our almost 12 year old dog), picking up Jerry's truck and having it winterized. We then spent a day and a half driving up to Fairbanks. It is really only a 6 hour drive, but when we arrived in Alaska, they were only getting about 6 hours of light a day. The drive is almost entirely through the mountains and we weren't sure how the roads would be so we made a reservation to stay about 2/3 of the way up.
The drive itself wasn't too bad. The roads had some yucky spots, but the scenery was fabulous! Below are a few pics I took on our drive from Anchorage to Fairbanks. Enjoy!


Noah bundled up with his and Paige's hat. Isn't he a goof?!?





Little snow angel!

It's beautiful here, and we have room for guests, so let us know when your coming up.

I can't believe Sebastian is almost 12, but I can't believe Taylor will be 12 soon either! Remember when Sebastian used to pull Taylor around in his walker? :) They were too cute! Glad you love Alaska! Jason is really jealous! It's always been his dream to live there!
