Summer Has Come to An End

What a crazy life it has been this summer from summer youth camp, 4th of july here on the beach, and Alaska.
Sam and I just got back from Alaska and had a wonderful time. We went with my mom and dad. They were so sweet to invite us. We were there for two weeks. Did alittle site seeing and fishing. It was awesome. God is so good. We got a cabin and spent a few days up in Talkeetna on the river and just hung out, went shopping , and bbqed. Then we headed back down on the coast and went fishing for 3 days! We caught Halibut and salmon. It was very exciting!

This is the cabin we stayed in for a few days.

Me waiting for our 8 hour bus ride. YEAH, I know what you are thinking. We did see lots of animals.
This caribou walked right up to our bus! It was crazy!

Beautiful view

This was an amazing trip and I loved every moment of it. The lord sure did provide for us on this trip too. God is so faithful.

I know I have been really slacking on my blogging. My life has been very busy and I was so exhausted at the same time. But, the good news is I am back.

This week was pretty good. It was a little rough at the begining but, got lots better. I have to work this weekend and I am not real excited about it. Its only for a bit though. My house needs alot of help. I have lots of laundry and cleaning to do.

So, what has everyone been up to this summer?

xoxo, Emily
