I wanted to share a video and a few pictures of the girls witnessing their first (and one of their last) space shuttle launches. What a special moment that we were able to capture on film.

And the moment...

One more picture I took of the Alyssa last night hitting the sauce hard before bed!

few videos

I got yelled at today for not posting more frequently. To say the least, our life has been hectic recently...but still no excuse for not posting. Here are a few videos that have been on my iphone lately.

This first one was the day before Valentine's Day. The girls were cutting out hearts to go on Valentine's Day cards. Notice how Katy opens and closes her mouth when she cuts the paper.

This next one was Sunday morning...just having fun eating Eggos and playing on the iPhones. They are so spoiled!

This last one is so pathetic. Alyssa has caught a bit of a cold and it's quite sad. She is a real trooper despite her fever and cough. She's still a sweetie. Here is a video of her doing her best impression of Wall-E.

I'm on a boat!!!

I think I've used that title before. Ah... doesn't matter. I don't think anybody got it the first time. MAYBE Sam...but that's about it.

So in an effort to start catching up, let me share some pictures from this past weekend. I worked at the NOAA booth at the annual Anchorage Boat Show on Sunday. It was a nice experience...mainly because I spent 8 hours chatting with an agent from the NOAA Office of Law Enforcement. This guy had some GREAT stories!! Plus, Lisa and the girls came up to see me. I took a break and we let the girls check out some of the boats. It was a good time.

Yes that says $123,000.

My view from my booth.

Random funny picture. This moose was hanging out the other day behind the office. I thought it would be funny if we incorporated the moose as a part of the training for interns....add it into the forecaster development program. I think it's only fitting that if you're going to measure rain/snow in Alaska, you have to run the gauntlet!

Random pics of cute kids today. My brother sent this picture today of his son, Tyler. Tyler was WORKING THAT CUPCAKE!!!

And the saddest thing you'll ever see. Katy spent half the night throwing up last night. No idea what happened but she was up from 11:30-1 and then again from 4-5:30. Rough night all the way around. She's feeling better today thanks to a little nap in the afternoon.
