We're Here!

We made it to Alaska. It was a 6 day drive with the kids. We saw some fabulous wildlife along the way, to include grizzly bears, black bears, moose, stone sheep, buffalo, caribou, and bald eagles. I'll post some pictures of our trip up later. For now, here are some shots from our stay in Seattle.

Trip to Seattle

Well, we've been here in the Seattle area for almost a month now and we are just about ready to get on the road to Alaska. I've been trying to take lots of pictures and thought I should post a few on here. We've been trying to get out and do something fun each day so the kids don't get stir crazy inside. We've spent time at the pool, the zoo, the children's museum, Mt. Rainier, MANY parks, and much more.
I was able to get here to Tacoma just in time to run the Sound to Narrows with a couple of friends. We didn't really run too fast since two of us had 3 month old babies at the time, but we did it, we ran the whole 7.5 miles and it was so much fun!!

We'll update again after we make it to Alaska.

Jessie at swim lessons. When she floats with her face in the water she thinks she is scuba diving. It is pretty comical.
