We are HERE!!

Well, it has been an amazing journey from D.C. to Anchorage, Alaska. Bradford graduated from his residency at Bolling AFB and we headed West to see family... and then WAY up north to AK.

We had a great last weekend in D.C. before we left. We said our goodbyes and then took a few days to relax before we hit the road. Lucy was in UT with her Mimi and Puppy (thanks again Mom and Dad.) After a nice weekend of eating out at all thoes "non-kidfriendly" resturaunts and a great room at Hotel Palomar in Dupont Circle, we were ready to paint "Alaska or BUST" on our trusty 1991 Volvo Wagon and head directly for Kansas City.

We got to Kimball's cute house about 17 hours later, just as the sun was coming up. It worked out nicely as he was getting out of bed, we jumped in. After a few hours of sleep we saw the city, met neighbors, took the Volvo in for a check up, got locked out of the house, ate at a great dumpling bar and went shopping at a Vintage Clothing store called Boomerang... whew! We only had 24 hours with K, so we had to cram it all in! It was a great stop, and I really liked KC.
The next morning we got up and drove to UT. About 17 more hours in the car we thought Kansas would never end! We were happy to pull into Heber and see our sweet Lucy asleep at Mimi and Puppy's house. We caught a few hours of sleep and then woke up to spend time with my family.

We had to leave Heber earlier than we had hoped because our ferry plans changed. We stopped in Layton for a yummy dinner with Graham, Emily, McKay, and the twins. We all went to a Real soccer game and then Bradford, Lucy and I headed for Pocatello.

It was great to see everyone in Pocatello. We always love going to Pokey to see family and visit our old turf.

Ok... I need to go to bed, so this entry is TO BE CONTINUED.

Good Night!
