This is our week in pictures. We had moose in our backyard earlier in the week, which was a treat because we haven't seen them around the neighborhood since this fall, or at least the kids and I haven't. We went up to Hatcher Pass yesterday, which is a very popular place for snowmachining, snowboarding and skiing, and sledding; we chose to do the latter. We drop the kids off way at the top and let them slide down and then we drive down to the bottom of the road and pick them up (the road switches back). I don't know how long the sledding hill actually is but it is quite a long ride for them. It is always beautiful up there, as you can see mountains for miles! It has been so clear and sunny!
I'm extremely UP right now! I usually feel like the Amy Steinberg song says, "i'm either dancin on a cloud or i'm dancing with the devil underground." Right now I'm dancin on a cloud because it looks like for sure that the kids and I are taking the motorhome down in August to do a three or four month jaunt in the motorhome. We may choose to store the motorhome in Seattle on the way up so that we can do this every fall without having to worry about the 2400 miles through Canada. The only downfall to doing that is that we won't have the motorhome in the summer to tule around Alaska.
On a down note, Martin's car is on the fritz. We will have to get that in the shop this week, which means that I will most likely be without a car. Life is full of ups and downs and you just have to go with the flow!

Yesterday was an awesome day for sledding...glad you guys got out in it!

You know I am so jealous of your big trip you are planning!!!

How are we ever going to get together next week if we are both without cars?? Hunter is sick anyway so I doubt you'd want to be around us...

I'll call you soon...

Isn't it pathetic? Sometimes cars are just a hassle but we can't live without them! We will probably try to get Martin's car in the shop today if he can break away for 1/2 hour, he has been REALLY busy at work. It is SOOOOO windy today too!

What's really bad is our truck is not running right either...we HAVE to get one in the shop this week...or we'll be really stranded!!!

I can't believe the wind is back! It is FREEZING!!!!
