Whale Watching

Adria, Thomas and I took a little drive south of Anchorage on Saturday afternoon just to get out of the house. While we were driving, Adria said "I want to see some whales."

Soon after we pulled off the side of the road and we saw the above sign, and realized that we were seeing Belugas. I was able to get some video of the whales (to show that it wasn't some sort of Loch Ness Monster or the monster which purportedly lives in Lake Champlain):

Here are some other pictures from our drive:

Little Thomas Update

Thomas recently turned one month old. He is doing well. Between his 2-week and one month checkups he added 2 whole pounds of weight (the acceptable weight gain starts at 14 oz). Here are some pictures of our little one.

Thomas is also learning to appreciate taking naps on his dad.
