Well, in a few days the girls and I are flying back east to visit my mom. Dea has been packed for the trip since last week! Needless to say, we're stoked to be heading toward actual Summer weather! Rippin hot and humid? I'll take it for a couple weeks!!! This has been the coldest summer in Alaska on record. Chilly, rainy, misty and foggy. I SWEAR it's bringing out the bears. We had a grizzly in the driveway on Friday and there was the black bear on the back deck yesterday morning. Along with a couple more black bear sightings by the neighbors. Niko's girlfriend-dog from down the street came by for a visit wearing bear bells!
So OFF WE GO! We are taking the red eye from Anchorage-which is perfect-we all sleep. But my dilemma is this: Coming back home to AK, we'll be taking a grueling 7 hr flight out of Michigan.
DOES ANYONE HAVE SOME GREAT IDEAS FOR ENTERTAINING A 4 AND 13 YEAR OLD ON A LOOOOOOOOONG FLIGHT!?!?!?!?!??!
Dea does fine on flights-so does Lo, for that matter, and for her age-but Lo is of more concern. 7 hours without exercise....OI! Leave your great ideas and I'll draw a name next Monday as a winner! Winner gets a CHEESY *schmunsky prize from NEW YORK CITY!!!!! YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE HHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
And I THANK you in advance!!!!!!!!!!!!
*Schmunsky-Low in price and probably kinda useless. But fun none the less!!!
