Happy 4th Birthday Leinna

Happy 4th Birthday!!

 Wow - where does the time go?

Can you believe I got away with hot pink cupcakes!  Ha, ha - Papa was a little irritated, but I told him that Sister got to chose her own birthday treat.  

We celebrated her birthday early, because we will be headed to Fairbanks on Friday to start our adventures for July - I'll share more about that in just a minute.  Back to the birthday girl...

Sister had a great time baking her cupcakes and then frosting them.

Next on the birthday celebration - was Skyping Grandma Julie into the little party...

Sister had fun opening presents

in her Cinderella dress of course! 
(Oh - Mrs. DillyDally- can you just picture what our Papa was thinking?!? HA!!)

But the best part - enjoying the cupcakes!

Happy 4th Birthday!! (almost)

So - my dear blog followers - I posted two entries tonight, Whittier Camping Trip, in case you missed that one.  WHY?  Well, on Friday, we'll be headed to Fairbanks to begin our month long trip.  We'll spend a few days with Grandma Cynde and Pope getting the camper ready and packing up.  We'll probably go out to eat and maybe an ice cream treat to celebrate Sister's real birthday on Sunday - but then on Tuesday we hit the road!   We are driving and camping our way down the ALCAN to Montana for a Jacobsen family reunion.  I won't have my laptop, nor internet connection to do my weekly blog entry - but you better believe when we return in August I'll have all sorts of adventures to share. 

Wishing you all a wonderful month of July and we'll see you back in August!

Whittier Camping Trip

Whittier, Alaska - June 2014

Those of us who have had the pleasure of traveling to Whittier know that the weather is typically, cold, rainy, windy and just not very pleasant at all.  Grandma Cynde and Pope were camping in Whittier and invited us to come down.  We decided to go thinking we'd only stay the night and then return due to weather - but to our wonderful surprise - we had sunny skies and beautiful weather all weekend long!

After setting up camp - it was time to do what we came to do - Go Shrimping!

Someone couldn't hardly wait to go out on the boat!

Pope even let her have a turn driving!

Fresh Shrimp!  Yes Please!!

Brother is just too much of a busy body these days to be safe on the boat - so he had fun staying behind with Grandma and throwing rocks into the ocean.  When we returned - someone would not leave my side.

While our shrimp pots were soaking - we also tried our luck with some halibut fishing.

Again- someone was way too excited to be out on the boat again!
Here's Sister with a family friend - Uppa

We enjoyed the afternoon, but didn't have any luck catching halibut.  

Pleasantly surprised by the wonderful weather - we made a full weekend out of it.  Brother is always sneaking a chance to drive the car - silly boy!
