Giving Thanks!

There are many things to be thankful for this year, to only name a few:
*opportunities-the freedom to travel and relocate to areas near family
*travel-the excitement of the possibility of living overseas next year
*technology- the ability to skype 3/4 of our family on thanksgiving
*employment-something we realize we should ALWAYS be thankful for
*healthy new babies in our family
*a loving and growing marriage
*the blessing and well being of family and friends
*the freedom to openly acknowledge and grow in our understanding of God's peace and grace.

Post-Turkey Camping

We were invited to go to another cabin with some friends the day after Thanksgiving. It was only a 3.4 mile hike in and a gorgeous ocean view from the cabin.

eagle glacier cabin

A couple weeks after we arrived in Juneau we went with some friends to Eagle Glacier cabin which is located just outside of town and a good 5 mile hike in. We had pretty decent weather hiking in but it had rained several days before so the trail was wet, filled with roots, and slippery board walks. Johnny and I were the only ones not wearing Alaskan tennis shoes (rubber boots). Our hiking boots were not equipped with type of traction needed for Southeast Alaska. Despite sliding around, and being really sore after the hike...we had a great time! We didn't bring our camera but fortunately some pictures were emailed to us. Enjoy!
