While Ryan was on the slope Adelle and I got to do something he would have loved to have been there for. We went 4-wheeling, my first time! We went with my dear friends Rayna and Joe (who subsequently are my OLD friends whom I set up and they finally got married after years of urging :o)). We went up to Sutton which is where I want to live eventually. Its 15 miles north of Palmer and just over an hour north of Anchorage. It's a beautiful small town in the mountains!

We strapped Adelle and her car seat to the 4-wheeler....

...and after two minutes of ridding she was out. Through all the bumps and craziness, I was shocked.
It was really funny because before I put my helmet on she laughed and talked to me, but once I put this on I noticed an immidiate difference. She looked at me like Where is this space creature taking me? Can you blame her? Once I took it off she immediately smiled at me, glad to have her Mom back.

I love Alaska in the fall, this is my favorite time of year. And I had SO much fun 4-wheeling, and afterwards we had dinner at the towns little cafe. I am glad Ryan's not too mad at me :o)


  1. I love the picture of Adelle with her little arms up, I can just hear her saying weeeeeeeee!

  2. Oh WOW! Everything looks so beautiful! And Adelle is SO CUTE! I'm afraid that Eric shouldn't see this because I think 4 months might be a little early for Ellie to join in the 4 wheeler club. :)

  3. NOOOOO WAYYYY!! I would love to do that... looks great!
