Anchorage and New Bike

The kids and I took a trip up to Anchorage on Friday to visit Erik's sister, Beth. Erik has been working a lot, so I decided I would just take off. It was so fun for me and the kids. First, Beth took us bowling. Kali got bored halfway through one game, but Kaitlyn loved it. Then we went to the zoo, where most of the animals were sleeping, but the kids seemed to have fun. The Anchorage zoo is pretty small and all the animals are pretty much from the area so that they can survive the winters here, but it's always good for an hour of fun. Thanks, Beth, for hanging out with us - we had so much fun!


While we were in Anchorage we got Kaitlyn her first bike. She has been begging and pleading, but I told her it wasn't warm enough yet. Now that most of the snow has melted off, I decided it was time. She loved the bike. She seemed to take to it a lot better than her old tricycle, and she was zooming up and down the street. The last picture is one I took right after we got home. Erik was out working on the boat and got my attention. I had to take a picture of what we were seeing out the window. Kaitlyn was so worried that the moose would charge and kill Erik. I assured her Daddy was fine, but it's still a funny picture. ~Angela

Way to go Kaitlyn! Ya, our Alaskan kids are tough. My sister saw a three year old out running through the sprinkler in shorts today at a balmy 54 degrees! We all have Spring fever bad. How nice for Kaitlyn to have something cool to learn to do this summer.
