JJ in Alaska

That is one large cow

We said antelope not cantaloupe  

Sticks - why do we buy toys?

OK, you say, lets get this ship moving

My favorite time, anytime with you

Nothing like Gig to rest while on a long train ride

Another pine cone

You love pine cones and sticks

Fox Island - where Rockwell Kent became inspired. He was with his son, I am with mine 

Sometimes a long day on a boat is rough

These lions don't roar
You with Gigi - watching for whales

You and mom on the train in Alaska

These fellows came out just to see you

Your favorite bedtime song is "A whale of a tail" and here is the whale
Dear JJ,

Being an Alaskan dad means I get to take you to Alaska.  This time we got to go with Gigi. But now that you are two it means I buy your airline seat- so how much will that slow us down -- well, not too much. 
I have done a lot of travel in my life - but now the travel is fun. Seeing the world through your eyes opens up mine.  Every now and then I go on a trip without you and mom, and that just seems empty.
So- we are a family, or as I like to say "Team Simpson."
