I AM BACK!!

Between design jobs and a road trip in the rv with the family for a week I am happy to be home and ready to blog!! We had an amazingly beautiful trip from Anchorage to Fairbanks (Chena Hot Springs), to Lake Louise and then home. I will be sharing some of the few hundred photos I took and a few family shots to mix it up. Starting tomorrow I am back on track with my blogging. It has been too long. :) I am so psyched about CHA coming up and all of the new and exciting offerings for fall and winter. I am hoping to have all sorts of new and exciting crafty news to share with you over the next few months!!!!! If you are still checking in and reading my blog THANK YOU!! I know it has been too long and I hope that doesn't happen again. ;)

Heading north! As we were on our way out of Anchorage the first day it started turning cloudy, windy and rainy. That was the last we saw of bad weather for the week. Every view out of the front window was amazing! We really do live in a majestic state.

Some brand new ducklings trying to get off the road. Momma duck hopped right off the road into the tall grass, but these little ones didn't know where to go. After much of my pleading my husband drove down the center of the road very slowly and kept blasting our airhorn until these babies finally turned off onto a side road to safety. We had traffic blocked for about a 1/2 mile, but the babies stayed safe! :)

Marissa and daddy off to a morning swim in the pool and hot tubs. It was so warm. You would never guess this photo was in Alaska, huh?! We took her to the pool about three times each day. This is an ice sculture inside the Ice Museum at Chena Hot Springs. Professional ice carvers are on staff. Amazing artwork! It is a chilly 20 degrees year round inside this museum (It was 75 degrees and sunny outside). My husband and dad are enjoying their appletinis in martini glasses made of ice. We kept the glasses in the freezer for a few days and then let them melt. :)
