Anniversary Get Away

This is inside the cabin we stayed in for our anniversary celebration. It was just a couple of miles out of town, and Erik's co-workers were making fun of us, but it turned out to be a pretty nice place to stay. It felt so good to have some alone time. This is the first time we have been without children all night in 4 years. It was nice and relaxing and we just had fun together. Thanks again to Beth and Ian who came down from Anchorage to watch the crazy kids! We love you guys!


This is outside on the deck. Erik started a fire for me a we sat out there and drank hot cocoa. What a difference 12 hours makes, though. The last picture is what we woke up to this morning. Welcome to April in Alaska. We keep getting hints that summer is truly coming. I have to admit that I'm starting to wonder if summer really exists up here. I can't remember when there wasn't snow...~Angela

We feel you with the snow. I figured out that Cleveland is pretty much in winter from Sept to late April. But at least you guys have the pretty views. Crack houses just don't inspire like you think they would here.
