sorry for the absence - we've been very busy around here! aaron and i just took our annual anniversary trip and we are tuckered out! we decided to go to alaska this year to visit one of my favorite people, mary! she and i have been friends since college. aaron's family came down a few days before we left to spend time with us before we left and they stayed with campbell for 2 days and then they gave her to my family for the rest of our trip. this was our first for us to both be away from campbell, and surprisingly it was easier than i was anticipating. i think what really made it easy was the fact that we were so busy, that i didn't even really have time to think about being so far away from her. she did great! she didn't have one meltdown all week! PTL! so onto our trip - mary really made our trip fun by filling our days with all things alaska. we ate at local places, drove and toured denali national park, we went fly fishing, we went white water rafting, we camped, etc. we really had a great time spending time with her and getting to see a bit of what her life is like up there. it was also really neat being there over the solstice! so weird to have almost 24 hours of daylight! overall, we had a wonderful time and i'm so thankful that i got to see mary!
