Alaska Trip

Kevin took a quick trip this weekend up to Alaska to visit with his Grandma who's health is failing. I made him take the camera with strict instructions to take lots of pictures. It looked like they all had a lot of fun and I wish we could have all made it up with him. Here are some pictures of the trip.

Hot tubing in zero degrees and yes I think that is snow falling down.

Sunset. This has a special name, but I'm not sure what it is called.

Grandma Jenkins

Cousins: Austin, Lydia, Noah, and Ethan. Kevin said these guys were so much fun and he can't wait for our kids to get up there and meet them.

When he stepped off the plane and made his way to the car this is what he found:

Poor guy had to dig himself out with no shovel at 11:00 pm. We are glad to have our dad back. We sure did miss him while he was away, but are glad he was able to make the trip.

Wish I had the camera to take pictures of the three feet of snow we got yesterday, but Kevin has it in Alaska this weekend (more on that later). So, the biggest snow fall over a 24 hour period for Maryland in about 30 years happened yesterday. As I look out the front window for our van all I see is a big marshmallow. I can't even open the back door for the 2-3 feet of snow that would come tumbling into the house. The kids played out in it yesterday, even Audrey who by the way is NOT a fan. Church was canceled today so we are spending another day staying warm and toasty inside. I think our Home Teachers might come over and attempt to dig out our marshmallow car since Kevin is out of town and doesn't get back till late tonight.
Kevin went for a fast trip to Alaska to visit his Grandma. Her health is failing and he wanted the chance to express his love and appreciation for her in person one last time. I sent the camera with him so he could take pictures of all the cousins, aunts, uncles, grandmas, and grandpas we don't get a chance to see often. I'm sure there will be a post with pictures from that trip to come. In the mean time we remain berried in snow here in Maryland.

The Human Vacuum

Nothing in our house is safe from the 2 foot human vacuum. Audrey will put just about anything in her mouth. Sometimes she swallows, but mostly she just chews. Her chew toy of choice is a box of jello.

I've had to move these boxes up a few rows so she can't reach them, but that doesn't stop her from trying. She is the funniest little girl ever.
