Alaska- Turnagain Arm

 About 40 minutes outside of Anchorage is Turnagain Arm. The highway runs along side it and it is beautiful.  As we were driving back to Anchorage we happened to see the tide coming back in.  There were some crazy people surfing the tide.  We got out and watched them for a while. 
 I found a video with someone surfing the tide here.  You can kind of get a glimpse of what we were watching...

Alaska- Wildlife Zoo

 Just a little outside of Anchorage is a Wildlife Zoo.  There are all sort of Wildlife there like moose, brown bear, caribou, elk, muskox, eagles....  All of the animals here where injured and could not be put back out in the wild, so they made a huge park for them.
 Madi loved this wooden carved bear.  It was just her size and she kept on kissing it.
 Weston's favorite animal was definitely the moose. He loved them! 
 Now that is some weird looking antlers!
 A little baby moose!
This is a Caribou- These antlers where nuts!  I bet any hunter would love to have a rack like that on his wall!
 Brown Bear
Bears playing in a river.  They where SO funny to watch!

Anchorage, Alaska Temple

At the beginning of July, we went to Alaska!  It was SO much fun and we loved every moment of it.  I have so many pictures that it will take me a couple posts to get through them.  The first one I will start out with is our visit to the Anchorage Temple.
Weston loves to smell the flowers!
Yea!! We are at the Temple!!

Kids love mud!

 We are redoing the grass in our backyard.  So there is A LOT of mud.  One day Weston and Madi were playing on our back porch and I heard Madi start to cry.  I went out there and Weston was picking up mud then rubbing it all over Madi's face.  As soon as she saw me she started laughing.  She was so proud of herself because she was SO dirty!

 Weston must have been eating the dirt!
