Lulu and I went on an adventure to Alaska for a week in a half in May, to visit my sister and her family that just moved there in December.
I was really nervous about the flight over there by myself with Lulu for a five hour flight but it worked out just fine I had an open seat next to me so I was able to bring Lulu's car seat on with me and have her strapped in her seat the whole time it was great. Once we landed Angie was there waiting for us and the kids and Kyle were outside in the car waiting for us. Everyone was really excited to see us. We Few into Anchorage and we had a three hour drive to get to Soldotna where they live.
Our second day there the bigger kids were still in school for a couple of days before summer break. So Angie and Kyle took us out and showed us around there town. We stopped here and found a bear, I love Karlee in this picture, miss thing.
It was so nice and sunny outside on Tuesday so we went to a park to let Lulu and Karlee play and Lulu loved it she had so much fun.
I love how big this swing is I just had to get in and go for a ride.
Angie had a desk up in a loft in the toy room and Lulu's favorite thing to do was swing on it. It was so funny to watch her do it. And she did it a lot. She looked like a little monkey.
Kelsie drew this picture and she wanted me to take a picture of it and her. She is such a silly girl she loved playing with Lulu.
One night I couldn't find Lulu anywhere, as I was looking for her I found her in Kelsie's bed reading Kelsie's book it was so cute.
The first day of the kids being out of school we went to Seaward to go to The Sea Life Aquarium. It was lots of fun and Lulu loved watching the fish and seals swim around. Lulu was Kallie's little buddy that day.
This was funny Lulu was trying to give me kisses on this TV screen it was so cute.

All the kids watching the seals, do you see the big seal in the back!
There was a place where you could listen to a man telling you about the different sea animals Lulu had to listen to her own. Here she is listening.
Outside of the Aquarium I loved the water with the mountains in the back with the snow on them and the clouds, I thought it was so pretty!
I'm pointing to a glacier it was pretty amazing, you can't see it very good in the picture.
Lulu found Karlee's pirate bloomers from her Halloween costume it was pretty cute. She really wanted to show the camera the doll.
On Saturday we bundled up and went to the beach, we didn't stay to long because it was pretty windy and cold but it was fun to go to the beach in Alaska.
Lulu and I at the beach, don't mind my squinty eyes I'm not sure why I'm doing that.
Angie, Lulu, Me and my squinty eyes again!
Lulu loved playing with rocks at the beach. This was the only time during our visit to Alaska that Lulu wore her warm winter coat.

While we were in Alaska turned another week older.
