This weekend we drove out to Wasilla – yes, that Wasilla. No, we didn’t see Sarah or any of the Palin bunch. We drove out to attend the Mat-Su Valley Outdoorsman Show. We wanted to get some ideas for fun things to do with the kids this summer. Todd also wanted to get more information on the hunting and fishing available in the area. We let the kids climb in a bunch of campers. We sampled cupcakes from a woman that has a mobile bakery – delish! Todd subscribed to the Alaska Fishing magazine. Just generally looked around.
Near the end of our wanderings up and down the aisles, Todd and Jack were looking at a Dall sheep mount. Turns out a photographer from the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman newspaper had taken their picture. The photographer was super nice and let Jack see the picture of himself. Sure enough it ended up in the Sunday paper. I don’t have a hardcopy, but found the photo in their online version. Here it is:
On another note, I’d appreciate it if you kept my little guy, in your thoughts and prayers. We found out on Sunday that Jack has pneumonia. He’s currently on antibiotics and doing breathing treatments and seems to be on the mend. It hasn’t been a fun few days though.
