(we're on the road now, will post pics later!!) We left Galena last saturday after Romay's last softball game on friday. She has grown considerably, just remembering last softball season, both physically and maturing in skill as well. Saturday plane trip into Fairbanks involved getting a birds eye view of the forest fires around the Fairbanks area and on the ground, we inhaled the effects of that massive fire. It didn't put a damper on our spirits though (haha): camping in town and telling stories in the tent, visiting an awesome family-the Foshee's, Romay buying an air soft automatic BB pistol, reading in our down time, Barnes and Noble...
...we left for Anchorage and took our time heading down the highway. We saw a few beaver dams around Denali and started a joke about 'high altitude beavers.' We created a few spins off that idea and this seemed to entertain our hearty group of three...we arrived late afternoon, EXHAUSTED, since we had so much fun staying up late with the Foshees' the evening before...ahhhh, relaxation and a BED!!
...so tomorrow will be great: seeing Tera, Matt and AYUU!!!! She is almost a year old and this aunt can't wait to meet her! Hmmm, I better buy something to eat so she'll really like me :) :) :) Jay will do a little tinkering with the F150 since it is making a few unnecessary noises, sorry, no techy automotive talk from me! Jay teases me about a quote about my lack of expertise on motors...he can write about that sometime, ha. Thursday we head to Homer and will visit with a family friend on their property and set up our tent there...Friday 6:30 am-fishing!! ...halibut and silvers...Romay picked out our charter...about 10 hours of ocean time!! woo-hoo!!
...more later, with pictures!!!!
