Kenai Camping Trip

We got to see a new part of Alaska this week!
The whole crew had the day off on Friday to go fishing so after Geoff got home from work on Thursday we loaded up the truck, stopped for gas, water and snacks and headed three hours south to the Kenai Peninsula.

 The three hours flew by with scenes like these.

Someone loaned us a tent and we set it up on the lawn of the house Geoff's boss was renting for the weekend. Heading down we weren't sure what to expect but I sure wasn't expecting an ocean view! :) 

This little guy was super excited!

Ethan had fallen asleep on the ride down so he was already snoozing in his sleeping bag. I can't blame him it was after midnight by the time we got there and got everything set up.

It did the Florida part of my heart good to be near a beach again.

Ethan's too...

I've got lots more photos to share but I need to get going. I'm working with a friend today getting her house ready to put on the market. 

Hey anyone interested in moving to Alaska? She's got a great house on the hillside nearly ready to buy! We'll have it ready by the time you get here! :)

I'll leave you with a photo of Mt Redoubt that Geoff took early one morning. The boys were thrilled to find out it was an active volcano! The last time it erupted was the year Ethan was born in 2009. This was just across the water from where we were staying.
