~ALASKA~ The 1st few days

We finally had the opportunity to take the older 3 kids to Alaska. It was so fun to show them where we lived 15 years ago when we first got married. Yep, 15! Can't believe how fast it has gone by.

We picked the girls up from camp at 11am and boarded the plane at 3pm. Needless to say they were wiped out the first couple of days, but it worked out great because Jeromy was conquering a mountain and we got to sleep in. Yes, Jeromy thought it would be exciting to run over 24 miles through the mountains. (we need a Jeromy post about this run)

Here is the gang waiting for his arrival to the finish line.

The girls ran in the last little part. He is on a path, but 99.9% of the run was over the mountain, through the river and over the rocks. Everyone had scrapes and mud up to their knees.

A little refreshment and some proud kiddos.

One of the days we were there it poured all day. The rest of the days were mostly very nice.
We spent most of the rainy day at the water park. The kids had a blast!


Then we hit a few more spots around Anchorage.

What kid can resist "the world's largest chocolate fall"?

Oh my!!!!

A few hours at the museum and our favorite part, the Imaginarium.
There were so many cool things to play with and check out. We could call this an edu-va-cation.
