Our flight was early... which meant that the kids were going to be up for the day. Which meant keeping them entertained on two longish flights... with a 2 hour layover in between.
I can summarize the flights with - "it did not go well." A did ok. H, however, was the epitome of three and threw tantrum after tantrum. Apologies to those on our flight.
|L's trip to Alaska completes her quest to visit all 50!|
Arrived in Alaska with little time to do anything but gather our rental car and head to the hotel.

Dinner at Applebee's, L celebrated with a margarita. Early to bed.
Day 2 - Anchorage Zoo
The kids were up so ridiculously early. Like before 5:00 am early. Oy. And in Alaska at this time of year it doesn't get light out until almost 9:00 am!! Since we had time to kill we had some breakfast and then pawned the kids off on my parents so we could go to the fitness center and get a workout in. I hadn't run since my 20 miler and was itching to get some miles done.

The rest of us killed time at the visitor center.
