I'm so excited! I won a free airline ticket from UAF last fall and keep changing my mind about where to go and when. I was going to see my friend in Kentucky, but then I'm not sure why I didn't go...the getting from Chicago (it's an Alaska Airlines ticket) to her house in Louisville is always a problem. Then I was going to go to Portland to see my sister and her family, that didn't work. I was traveling too much around the time I booked that trip for. I found out it's expiring soon. We have nowhere to go and several trips planned in the next couple of months.
I decided to offer to bring my friend "Martha McGuyver" (she can make or fix anything so that was her nickname)to visit. She and her family moved to Unalaska right about the same time we did. She has 4 boys, I have 2 boys who where about the same age as hers. (our daughter was just 6 months old) we became friends immediately. We started a Tiger Cub group the next month and did scouts for the entire time she was here.
I took my kids to Louisville once a few years ago, I just haven't made it back. We loved it! We went on a road trip and saw a lot! This picture was taken at the Biltmore Estate (OMG, LOVE that place!) I'm so excited for her to come back to Unalaska and see everything again! To have a break (she's now raising her boys by herself) She deserves a break!!
Poor thing has a very long journey ...over 2 days each way. 4 flights!! I like hanging out in airports, I get emails written, books read, naps, I enjoy quiet along time...I hope she does too!!
We'll do all the tourist things and try to have at least one get-together too!
I just booked this 3 days ago..I can't believe she leaves in 4 days and will be here in 5 days!!!!!
Today was busy! 2 soccer games, a bunch of groceries purchased when it's raining sideways. blowing about 50 knots --that was fun! I have bunko tonight and there is yet another Halo party here at home...when am I supposed to write papers and get my assignments done?!!!
