Wasilla ~Alaska Trip Days 25 & 26

Thursday was a day of playing and relaxing. It was nice weather again, so the children rode bikes and enjoyed the outdoors. This firepit is just a short distance from the front (used to be back) door, so it has quite a drawing for the littles.

Cindy is a whiz at fixing mass quantities of food for company. I got my longed for recuperation in their home as we stayed put for 11 days in their birch wooded drive. Mom & Dad got a little more elbow room at a big table and much more than just one dish suppers. Plus plenty of nap/coffee time. Life is good!

Thursday night we went a few miles over to Caleb & Janine King's for a Bible study & singing (and to say hello to Vernon & Donna, fellow KS folks). They had a nice crowd in their garage. The music was lovely, and God blessed us with a brilliant double rainbow afterward that we could see from their backyard.

The next day we had a young beauty salon set up, among other activities. After lunch we visited the Dorothy Page museum where the children had fun with a scavenger hunt in the exhibits. There was a neat optical illusion painted on the wall going downstairs that looked like you were headed into the Independence Gold Mine. The historic buildings outside were locked, but we snapped a pic of the field trippers on the porch.

So many girls! Almost a perfect fit of friends for the 2 families.

Shannon went to work with Shane finishing up a tiny home for his friends parents' guest cottage (a home away from home when they fly in to visit). We stopped by to see the building's progress.

A few days later, they were almost ready to set up furniture.
Friday night we met the Chan family, friends of the Turner family. We had a sweet time of fellowship and sharing over yummy pasta, alfredo, marinara, salad, and garlic bread while the children played with the salmon in the river.
