Alaska Zoo

We’ve done so much on this trip, the days are slipping by quickly. Last week, we visited the Alaska Zoo. The Alaska Zoo has bears and tigers, which is not too uncommon as far as zoos go. It also has a pair of polar bears, which is a bit unusual. But its real charm comes from animals like the bull moose, musk ox, wolverine, and sea otters.

The real treat for me was to see my older two boys enjoying the zoo as much as I did when I was their age. You can see all of the pics in this slideshow.

Eli’s other front tooth was hanging by a thread so he finally got up the courage to pull it. Yay, Eli!

Playing at the Park

We spent an evening at the park playing ball and aerobie with some cousins. This is a good example of why Alaska summers are so great. This shot was taken around 9:00. We didn’t leave until nearly ten o’clock and the sun was still up. See the rest of the photos here.

Arctic Thunder 2008

We went to the air show after church and lunch with the family. We arrived late, so we only saw the F-22 Raptor demonstration from afar, no pictures.

The Thunderbirds were impressive, as always. The boys loved it and we got some good photos.

Flying to Alaska

We finally made it to Alaska after a long day of flying, switching planes, flying some more, switching planes again, and flying some more.
