Happy Valentine's Day!

Now that our surroundings are a little more interesting, we're back to a family tradition that dates back to our time in Las Vegas, but especially Colorado, the road trip. Brad and I both love to hop in the car and go, just for the day, so that's what we did today. After dinner we did a little Valentine's Day celebration. Here is our day in pictures:

We're on our way. Catie gets comfortable:

Nick wouldn't stop moving and talking long enough for me to get a good picture.

This is part of the view before you even get out of Anchorage.
We drove down Turnagain Arm. There are things to see on both sides of the road. Ice falls with occasional ice climbers:

Turnagain Arm and the mountains on the other side:

After dinner, the kids ate their Valentine treats from Grandma and Grandpa Phelps.

Mmmm... Marshmallows on a stick!

Then, we made Valentine's cookies! The heat from the oven kills germs, right? Please tell me I'm right.
