Finally something new to write about.

After almost a whole month without a car and driving a rental we finally went car shopping. We decided to go back to the same dealership where we bought our truck because they were so friendly and helped us out in any way possible. They were the same this time. We told them exactly what we were looking for in a car (something that can hold our family, very safe, gas efficient, can pull a trailer and that won't cost an arm and a leg) the salesman took us right to an SUV. It had everything we wanted and then some. After thinking about it for a day and talking about it we went back on Friday and bought it. It helped that we had already had credit with that dealership so they took us immediately. After less than an hour we drove off the lot in a 2008 Toyota Rav4. I love it, and the more Richard drives it, he loves it too.

Trip to Portage Glacier

A few weeks ago we took Jon on some sightseeing around Alaska. One of the places I have always wanted to go was The Portage Glacier. It was beautiful. It's tucked away way off of the main roads behind the mountains. I love glaciers, they are very fascinating to me. It was a wonderful day. Jon seemed to have fun too. Just another reason to love Alaska.
