Our Trip So Far

Well, we have big in Anchorage for about 5 days now and we are having a great time. Wednesday we met the Koehlers at IHOP for breakfast and then hit Toys R Us and Target! Target was fun we didn't look at everything. Its funny that whenever we get to these huge shopping centers we get a little overwhelmed. It doesn't help that its Christmas and everyone is shopping. The kids were just dying to get to my moms house and see Grandma and Kierra (her foster dog).
We went to dinner at Benni Hannas with the Koehlers that night and had a really great time.
We have been to the mall and enjoyed just spending time relaxing at Grandma's. We did find that we had to go and get internet here at grandmas house for a few days. I have a few class assignments still due in and needed to get on the internet to research and turn stuff in. Aarorn and I took the boys to an Aces game and that was a lot of fun. We didn't know it was Millitariy Appreciation night. There were over 600 service memberes there in uniform and many more not in uniform . They did a lot of special millitary appreciation ceremonies. We have been sledding a couple of times too which is great since there is not any snow left in Kodiak. We don't head home until Wednesay so I am srue tat we are ging to have alot more fun stuff to do.

The foster dog is actually our dog that we got when I was pregnant. That was not so smart as we don't even have a fence. So Kierra Griffin is our fourth child and she lives with gramma gramma.
We are all happier for it!
