Day 1 of the Alaskan Adventure... 
We arrived at the hotel in Anchorage around 2:00 am. Everyone exhausted, 
but happy with the cool temperatures. Uncle Nate and Aunt Jen had arrived earlier in the day. 
We slept for just a couple of hours then boarded a passenger 
train to Seward, Alaska. We were all so tired, 
but excited for the adventure that was ahead of us.

 The scenery was breathtaking! 
 We soaked it all up! The landscape...the wildlife...the streams...the glaciers... 
It was all beyond amazing!

We had a great time together! 
 The train ride was 4 hours long...worth every minute! 
They served a fun breakfast along with great commentary along the way,  
Teaching us about Alaska. We had time to visit...
sleep...eat...take pictures and tease each other.
 It was a great time!!

Alaska With The Darlings...

Several months ago The Farmer suggested that we take a family trip. 
It's something we try and do a couple of times a year, but as 
The Darlings get older...it gets more and more difficult. 
 This seemed like a good year for us all to gather together and do 
something really fun. We have wanted to visit Alaska for a long time...
it's a bucket list trip for us, so it seemed like the perfect destination for the family.

We decided to meet in Mesa, 
Precious would join us there from Utah, 
and the rest would travel from Mexico. 
 The day we arrived in It was 124 degrees in Phoenix! 
We stopped at Grandma Vicki's to get PreSh and say hi... 
Then it was off to the airport.

 Traveling with the whole family was really a great time! 
Lots of laughing...talking...eating...a very good time!

 We boarded the plane and headed to Seattle 
and then on to Anchorage Alaska, where we arrived in the middle of the night.

Last Saturday we celebrated Chelsea. 
Oh how I love this girl! She is like my own. 
Chelsea is going to marry Nick soon...he is a lucky guy! 
After a heavy rain in the afternoon, the evening was nice and cool. 
The yard was fresh and beautiful!

 The theme was "Dinner en Blanc"...French and perfect.
 Everyone who attended wore white, 
beautiful for a Summer evening outside.

The food was fantastic! 
Uncle Ben and Aunt Amy...who were visiting for the weekend, 
made the most wonderful Cheese Board. 
Every bit of the food was delicious.

Dinner Time At Rancho 25...

A couple of nights ago, The Farmer and I headed to Rancho 25, 
 to take some fresh hay to the Longhorn Herd ;) 
The feed on the ranch isn't so good as the weather has gotten hotter. 
 We haven't had our rainy season yet, once that happens, the natural grass will return. 
 For now we are taking feed to them until we can get them moved to a different pasture.

They get pretty excited when the fresh alfalfa arrives...

After they were fed...
we headed up to the top of a nearby mountain and enjoyed a beautiful sunset... 
It was a very good evening at Rancho 25.
