fairbanks museum, dog mountian and little bit of sweeteness

We decided we needed a day out so we went adventuring across the state.  The drive there was eventful to begin with. As we headed across Jay there was a bit of a snowstorm. Roads were a bit slippery. Then once we were out of the high altitudes, Harkin got sick. He was fine afterwards, so I chalked it up to car sickness. Later in the weekend we would know it was a bug of some sort.

Back to our destinations.

First stop: The Fairbanks Museum
A nice little natural history museum. Boys had fun looking at all the animals and artifacts. William and Landon really took their time and soaked quite a bit of information. Harkin just thought it was cool going around the loops.

Second Stop: Dog Mountain.
A place where dogs could run around and be free. Then there was a chapel that was dedicated to all the pets of the past. We wrote a note to Gritty.
This was all made possible by the artist Stephen Huneck. It was interesting.

Third Stop: Maple Grove Sugar House
A small little museum about sugaring and then a gift store where the ladies were so nice to the boys. They each got their own sample of maple syrup and then a taste of pure maple sugar candy. This was a big hit.

Then we headed back home taking a different route, hoping Harkin would be OK. He did not get sick again but definitely wasn't feeling too good. I still thought it was car sickness, but then three days later he was sick again for a few days. So we caught something . He is on the mend and we are getting outside more this week.

p.s. Issabelle basically slept the whole day. She was so good in the car, which was a relief to everyone.

  1. What an eventful day. Poor Harkin. But the boys look fabulous, growing straight and strong. Issabelle is adorable with cheeks that just call to be kissed. Museums are the best. Love to all, XXXOOO
