Thanks to now having a reliable vehicle we decided to take advantage of the day that John and I had off together to do a day trip to Seward. I packed extra clothes, rain gear, lunches, and snacks, then I loaded the boys and picked John up by 9:15 or so. We stopped for Coffee and then started the drive.

I love little road trips and John and I really enjoyed the scenery and the chance to chat. The boys did great and were berry happy to be going on an "adventure"!

We took our time and I was even indulged to detour to Cooper's Landing to stop at their quilt shop! It was an awesome little shop and I picked up a wallhanging appliqué pattern and a little kit that will be a gift.

We got into Seward around 1pm and headed to their great playground to have a yummy (if somewhat chilly) lunch. Then we took advantage of the playground and let the boys stretch their legs. Very fun.

Then we headed to the Sealife Center, which we all enjoyed, though Corbin was especially intruiged by it all and was so fun to watch him discover and observe. We all thought the Sea Lion was pretty awesome (as we always do), though I always love the Puffins too!

I hit the yarn shop and quilt shop while the boys napped in the car, then we headed down to the docks and I knit while all the boys napped.

We got ice cream, and then headed for dinner (gotta love dessert before dinner ;P). After a hearty warm dinner we drove out to Exit Glacier and walked out to the glacier. Corbin did great and walked the whole way by himself and Noah was only carried about half way. Corbin loved walking in the drizzle and was pretty impressed with the glacier, thinking it was pretty cool that it could leave scratches on the rocks.

We headed home after that and wearily pulled into the driveway around 10:45pm. We all slept quite soundly :)

*I apologize for the crappy stretched pics - my camera batteries were dead, so I was stick with the iPhone camera and I am writing this from my phone and haven't figured out the stretching, I'll try to correct it at the pc in the morning*


  1. love the "crappy stretched pics" - looks like you guys had a blast! xoxo

  2. Seward is awesome! It is one of my fave spots in AK - our family spent many many summers there fishing for salmon ....
