We are in Alaska!

and Kate has had her first Alaskan Beer so hence the smile!!

Josh made the first 16 hours of travel like a trooper!! Then that last hour flight from Anchorage to Fairbanks he fell asleep and it was not pretty when I had to wake him and get him to walk off the plane. He hit the chair at baggage and if it was a video you would see the head bob that was happening as he kept falling asleep! It was just too cute. I don't think his head even hit the pillow at the hotel before he was out.

Now we landed at 11pm Alaska time, which is 4 hours difference from home, but it is so weird to see the light like it is mid day. They have about 21 hours of light right now so that is about the strangest thing to get used to! I have to say the air is so clean and crisp, the people friendly as can be and we are just enjoying every minute of it!

So just a short one today, hope to post more later today. We are heading out to see Downtown Fairbanks and see what we can see!!


  1. Kate and Josh look elated in the first photo. Glad to hear you made it safely. Have a great time!
