Alaska 2014 - Eklutna Lake

July 2

Chad had the day off July 2nd and joined us for a Kayaking adventure on Eklutna Lake.  It's a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains.  We rented 3 Kayaks for $35 a piece and headed out on the water in pairs or threesomes.

I stayed behind the first time and watched the kiddos who didn't want to go or couldn't fit in the first round.  Cooper liked to try out all the seats of the Kayaks on the shore.

Later, I swapped Grandma to go out with William.  After that I took Anna for a little while.  We all had a wonderful time.

Alaska 2014 - Eagle River Nature Center

July 1

Kip thought this would be a good summer to visit Alaska.  If you're wanting to go, doing it when you have family living there makes it more affordable and gives you an inside connection when choosing touristy activities.  So we flew up June 30 and spent the Independence day week with Chad and Angie.

There's a nature park not far from Chad and Angie's.  We dragged the kids out there in the drizzling rain Tuesday afternoon.  It was an absolutely beautiful place.  The wildflowers in this state are amazing! I couldn't keep from taking picture after picture.

It was a great place for a walk.
