Eric took a helicopter ride out into some of the most beautiful country. This is in Chinitna Bay in the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska.
One of my biggest endeavors during an otherwise very mellow trip to Nicaragua was a full day hike up Volcano Concepcion. A beautiful and excruciating day.
A last minute deal on a Groupon for an Ace’s game, and we decide to make a night of it!
The trip to Alyeska seems to be a family favorite. The boys have a blast and, although I don’t ski, and I always enjoy a quiet afternoon to myself.

Sawyer Skiing : Alyeska Ski Resort, Alaska
Sawyer learned to ski quickly and fell in love with it on the first trip that we took to Alyeska. On the second trip, he took a bit of a crash and burn that has him a bit spooked for now.

Evergreen & Deciduous : Girdwood, Alaska
The blue was really shining on the horizon. I love the warmth of the wood contrasted by the chilly white of the snow.
