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.
