Winter Trails Day

We went to Winter Trails Day. The Borough Rec Dept. among others sponsor a day that encourages people to get out in the winter and try,ice skating, snowshoeing, and skiing. They provide all the equipment free with snacks and instruction.

This was Caleb's first skiing adventure. Luke choose to stick close to the snacks and the snow cave. Baby Eli stayed home with grandma.

Caleb the Party Planner

So Caleb is known for his "Great Ideas" and often we will discuss his "great ideas" like vacationing in Mexico, a trip to Disneyland, or a quick trip to California. However, discussing them is usually as far as it goes, until Jake gets involved. Caleb's newest "great idea" is to plan parties, for example we go to church and Caleb invites everyone to his pirate party. I think he is using his imagination again until Jake comes up a asks when is the party and he is bring the cake. So we had a Pirate Party and then a Star Wars Party. I'm glad we have friends that help Caleb realize his "great ideas!"

New Year's at the Cabin!

We went to the cabin for New Year's!

So you know you are an Alaskan when you leave at -15 in the dark to snowmachine 40 minutes to your cabin with three kids, grandma, and her dog. It was a very interesting evening, Caleb requested next time we go to the cabin can we PLEASE go in the light.

This was Eli's (4months) first trip to the cabin. He was snuggled in his down contraption between me and grandma. He fell asleep before we even left the parking lot.

Grandma nested in the cabin, she went through and cleaned and rearranged everything. We drug out three bags of junk after she was finished.

Caleb tried his hand at ice fishing, but he only fed "the bait steal." We were so proud of him, he outlasted everyone. He was pretty far out on the lake, he is the little dot in the photo.
