Another blog post titled "Alaskaaaa"

I have been backtracking my posts since Ezra's arrival! Surely someday I'll get caught up and be sharing real time events with you. You know, just in time for the next baby ;) 

After graduation (literally, right after! We flew out of Seattle with Stephen's family!) we went to Fairbanks for a week+! It was sorta crazy - packing for Seattle and Alaska, driving to Seattle, leaving a bunch of stuff in our car, flying to Alaska, getting back to Boise separately and immediately start packing up for the move... We are so happy we were able to get that time with Stephen's family, though! It was worth the added "ahhhh!"s of stress I went through when planning it all! So here it is! A smattering of (mostly phone) pictures of our time in Alaska! Hooray for visiting in 24 hours of sunshine! 

 ^^ An afternoon at the beach! A beach in Fairbanks? Who knew?! So happy for that little get away spot, though - Uriah could throw rocks in the water and play in the sand for days! ^^
^^ Auntie Stephanie holding Ezra for the first time! ^^
 ^^ A lot of people headed off somewhere tropical after graduation, went on more of a vacation than just off to visit family. And while parts of me were jealous of the weather or the alone time they got, really, I wouldn't have done anything different with our time. Family is everything to us and we got lots of time just the four of us, just the two (ok three) of us and the whole gang (because who knows how long it will be before we can see them again!) ^^
 ^^ An outing to the Botanical Gardens with cousin Triston and Baba! These two played so well together! I love watching Uriah play with Harper (living in Idaho the last two years, he's gotten to see her lots!), but it sure was fun to see him playing with all his BOY cousins! ^^
 ^^ Lunch at McDonald's, because we're classy like that ;) ^^
 ^^ Miss Ezra Lee at two months old! ^^
 ^^ A walk around the Walls' just me and my babies - a breath of fresh air in more than one sense. Also, that last picture? My life summed up in one little square! ^^
 ^^ Bed head, bathroom selfies and smooshy cheeks! Does it get any better?! ^^
 ^^ An Alaska Land date with the Sanders family! I'm thinking a couple arranged marriages are in order here... ^^
 ^^ Like father, like son! ^^
^^ Uriah got to go on a fishing date with Pa and daddy! It was his first time, and they unfortunately didn't catch anything, but gosh, doesn't he look cute! ^^
 ^^ Baby wearing all day, every day! ^^
^^ Sibling (plus Ezra!) date night! Mini golf at Alaska Land before long boarding to the brewery for drinks! ^^
 ^^ You guys! I'm a doctor's wife...! ^^
^^ Dinner at Aaron and Rosie's and some picturing taking with this sweet sister of mine! ^^
 ^^ Another outing to Tanana Lakes. I am the luckiest! ^^
 ^^ We went (still are going) through a rough patch with Uriah. He had a baby sister, dealt a revolving door of visitors switching up his schedule, got potty trained, traveled to Seattle (the whole time asking if it was his "new house", and then traveled to Fairbanks all the while preparing for the move when we got back. It was a lot for me, I can't imagine what/how his little two year old brain was processing all that! Every once in a while, though, we'd get a moment like this - sweet, silly, innocent... Dare I say, perfect. ^^
 ^^ Three sons and five grandsons - Sherri's finally got her girl! ^^
 ^^ I'm so glad I found someone else who likes taking pictures as much as I do! ;) ^^
 ^^ My happy, happy Ezra! Always! ^^
 ^^ This kid has become an A+ air traveler! The second leg of our trip home was his 25th flight...! ^^
^^ I did it! Survived three hours in the airport with both babies, no stroller and no husband AND the actual flight home! It's less impressive when I say that flight was only an hour+ long, but still! Go me! ^^
