I’ve been meaning to start posting a series of life with little kids in the great frozen North. I mean, seriously, this place is weird enough but with kids? Well, it just becomes comical. So, for installment one, here is a video from last January. Adelaide was helping me pull in the groceries. On a sled. I am probably 34 weeks pregnant here, so you can see the zipper of my coat in part of the video because my coat did not fit over my belly. I just tucked a blanket over the belly and snapped the coat over my bust.
Luckily, my daughter is a good helper, and she was (and is) happy to help me pull in the groceries.
See Anchorage Zoo.
Increase our knowledge and wonder at the Imaginarium.
Visit tourist-y sites.
Some of that clearly had to be scratched due to rain and other non-negotiable events.
Revised Itinerary: 5am- Enough tossing and turning on a soggy sleeping bag. Find breakfast.
Dry sleeping bags.
Walk in a mall. (novel! We have no mall to speak of in Fairbanks.)
Visit touris-y places.
Cook dinner & air out tent, sleeping mats, etc.
Find the Bauers’ RV and bed down there.

Drive South on Parks Highway to Anchorage.
Total mileage: 382 miles
Epilogue: Though the drive had complications when the kiddos got tired, I felt the day would be recorded as a success. I was wrong, and right. Wrong = the drizzle of the day turned to rain and our tent flooded. Right = it was a little hilarious.
