Recap of our last 3 months

We had an eventful last few months, with lots of pictures :)

We headed down to the "Lower 48" for a few weeks. Steve had training in OKC and I stayed with family in CO. As you can see below, Alec was entertained at the airports with anything that moved (escalators, elevators, doors, etc)...overall we had a good trip getting down there.

While at my parents' house, I made my first "Chocoflan"(chocolate cake with a cream cheese flan and caramel)...everyone loved it!

Alec loved playing with his cousin Ethan...aren't they so cute!

Steve met us in Arizona for a weekend. We got see most of his family there and had lots of fun. The weather was sooo nice. While there we took Alec to the Phoenix Zoo.

They had camels, lions, monkeys, etc...but Alec really cared more for the birds!
Alec loved Easter cause he got tons of candy! At least he's well trained...
1) Open the candy

2) Eat it

3) Clean my hands

This last month we've been doing projects around the house. One of them was painting. Here's how our living room turned out :)

(notice the new chandelier)

Then last weekend we decided last minute to drive down to Anchorage since Steve's dad had a long layover there. I'd never been there outside of the airport so I was excited to visit it. The drive wasn't bad at all and we had lots of fun! The views are AMAZING! I love the mountains by the ocean, wish I had a view like that from my house :)

Alec enjoyed the trip too!

Posing for me at the hotel in downtown Anchorage.

While there we looked at some trailers to buy and in one of the places the owner had his dogs running around in the parking lot. They were so cute and friendly. Alec had a blast playing with them.

Notice him going under the dog...he thought that was fun but the dog surely didn't.

We saw some moose (the two black dots in the back/right)

More amazing views!

Alec, grandpa and Captain Cook.

We tried Moose's Tooth pizzas and they were good! We definitely loved Snow City Cafe though.
On our drive back we got a clear view of Mount McKinley (right in the middle of the picture), the tallest mountain in N. America.
