Alaska Arrived!

PB300080PB300082The Alaska contingent arrived Saturday morning shortly after midnight. Signs of their arrival was obvious the next morning with hockey sticks in one corner and gear bags in the middle of the great room.

This is the first time he’s seen Turk since we left Alaska in August with a dog that was still very hurting from his Fairbanks experience. It’s been a fun reunion and the boy and dog are having fun together.

PB300084PB300086Spencer dove right into helping with preparation for our late Thanksgiving celebration tomorrow, peeling potatoes and making pumpkin pies including the crust.

PB300083PB300088The hot tub and the hammock were tested as well,

PB300089before heading off to the Coyotes / Blackhawks hockey game where some of the out-of-town visitors were impolite enough to root for the visiting team as they trounced the home team!
It’s going to be a fun few days!


  1. What a fun reunion! It looks like the weather is cooperating, too. :)

    1. We're having a ball. The weather is wonderful. Off for a hike tomorrow morning :-)
