4th of July Weekend

We had a lot of fun over the long 4th of July weekend. Here is Isaiah giving a recap of the events.

On Friday we went to Potter's Marsh to go for a walk and see some birds. We had a nice time looking at the birds while Thomas had a fun time climbing on the benches. While we were looking at birds, just another visitor was telling us that there was a bald eagle nest nearby one of the adult eagles came into view, flying low over the marsh. That was pretty neat. (One of the neat things about Alaska, is that it seems that whenever you start talking about how you hope to see some animal, that animal tends to come into view. This has happened to us with beluga whales, moose and now a bald eagle) We see bald eagles all the time though.

On the 4th we went downtown to watch the 4th of July Parade. Thomas had a fun time running around before the parade started, but once the parade reached our location he was captivated by the classic cars, marching bands and paraders.

Plus there was time for the boys to be silly with each other

  1. What??? There were actual marching bands in the parade this year??? We went last year and there were NONE so it SUCKED bigtime. I heard though that only 1 high school around here has one and it's in Palmer and they only have it because their band director went to BYU and came up here and was like "what the heck?? No band??" so he started it.
