Hi everyone J As promised, here are a few more Alaskan adventures and some updates from us. By the way, this is Eric. Yeah, weird right? I don’t usually get into the whole blog thing, but Holly told me that Tanner McD does it. If Tanner can do it, I think I can get away with it too.
Holly is 27 weeks along and is FINALLY starting to show. She’d never say it, but I think she thinks it’s fun to finally look pregnant. We are both really excited – May 17th!
It’s hard to believe that we’ve only lived here a month and a half. We feel like we’ve been able to see and do a lot already…
Met some important people…
Swam some laps at the local pool…
Since we first arrived here in Anchorage, we have kept an “Alaskan Bucket List” (things we want to definitely do while we are up here) and that list just keeps growing. Here is where we’re at thus far.
See the Northern Lights
Cross Country Skiing
Shoot a Moose
Shoot a Grizzly Bear
Catch every type of Salmon
Go through the 3 mile tunnel
Walk on a glacier
Take pictures of:
- Moose (bull, cow, and baby)
- Black Bear
- Grizzly Bear
- Bald Eagle
- Humpback Whale
- Killer Whale
Teach our little girl how to ski
So far we’ve only checked one off the list. This past week we went on a moose hunt here in Anchorage (just with the camera) and we got lucky! Take a look.
Moose # 1
These first two we saw near a place called Kincaid Park which is only 10-15 minutes away from our house. We thought we got pretty lucky – moose hunt successful. We got home and were eating lunch in the kitchen of our townhome when believe it or not, a moose showed up RIGHT in our backyard. Here is the proof.
Moose #3, just right off of our back porch. I think this one counts as a baby…she was pretty young.
Pretty cool. This past week we took a picture of this next one….the door on the left is our neighbor’s front door.
Anyways…in other news, Holly took her Nursing Boards this past weekend! She has been studying quite a bit. She’s hoping like crazy that she passed – I am sure she did. That could be her last test EVER! From what we hear, Nurses are pretty high in demand up here so it might actually work out for Holly to get some experience in the field for a couple of months before the baby comes. We’ll see.
I however, am not so lucky. While she was taking her test, I swung by the office and picked up my study materials for the CPA Exam.
While we’re on the accounting subject, here is where I work. Pretty nice eh? You have got to love the grey cubicle. At least it’s got a name tag, right?
