A Little vacation

The Alaska cousins

The North Pole
Last week Ainsley, Lyvi and I went on a little adventure. We drove 6 hours through a winter wonderland to Erika's house in Fairbanks. The drive was so beautiful, the trees all looked like they were flocked, the mountains seemed to be covered with marshmallows and there were chunks of ice floating down the rivers. It's really interesting to drive and not see another vehicle for long amounts of time. We had such a great time at the Guymon's! They treated us so well. Erika's house is as cute as you can imagine!! Fairbanks is soooo cold, I actually felt warm back in Wasilla. The North Pole is so unique, you drive in to see lighted trees and huge candy canes lining the main street, even the fire hydrants are striped like candy canes. A few highlights were: good Chinese food at a local restaurant, Erika's cooking, hot springs, Santa's house, crafts, and just relaxing! It was fun for Lyv to play with her cousins and Ainsley to get full attention. I enjoyed laughing, cooking and reminiscing with Erika. Hopefully we can visit again soon, next time with Jefferson. I would like to give a shout out to my mother-in-law, Jan for letting me use her vehicle for a week and to Jefferson for watching Milo, being bored and eating crappy food all alone.
