That afternoon we took the girls down to the lake so they could swim...so fun!
That evening we tried this Pinterest-inspired dessert, s'mores cones. Yum!
Sunday morning the girls enjoyed some outdoor art time...
...and then we took them down to Kroto creek. We caught another trout...
...but the kids couldn't stay out of the water for long!
On Sunday afternoon our friend who owns the cabin flew up in his float plane and took Scott, Chris and I for a ride. That amazing experience will get its own post soon!
In order to hit the weather just right for maximum Denali viewing, our flighseeing happened late Sunday afternoon. We returned to the cabin around 6pm, which would have made for a very tight no-stops drive home to make the last tunnel in to Whittier so we opted to just send Scott back to Anchorage with our pilot friend and the rest of us stayed one more night at the cabin.
Monday morning the girls spotted this bunny hopping around. It's a domestic bunny that is somewhat of a pet, so Kelsey was able to catch it (with the help of some carrot sticks!) and we all got a turn holding it.
After we let the bunny go, we headed back down to the lake for some peddle-boating. What fun!
Monday afternoon we headed home. On our way south we took Grandma & Grandpa through Talkeetna and enjoyed some ice cream from Nagley's.
We spent some time waiting in construction south of Talkeetna. Waiting in construction is never fun, but with Denali in your mirror, how bad can it be??
It's not as magnificent as this view I shot as we pulled into Talkeetna, but still...Alaska never disappoints!
It was a great weekend...lots of fun, smiles, laughter and relaxation. Just the way a weekend away should be!
