Memorial Weekend

I happened to be lucky enough to have three beautiful days off. The first day I slept for F-O-R-E-V-E-R...I think I was catching up on the entire month of May? However, it felt really good to sleep 13 hours. After I awoke from my slumber Bev, Tara, and I went to eat at a home town Alaska favorite, Gwennies. Can I just say it has the best breakfast I have ever had!!! It doesn't look that great from the outside, but believe me it's what is on the inside that counts! Later that night we had a BBQ with Bev's family with some dang tasty cheese burgers.

Tuesday was great fun! Rekann and I decided to go hiking out in Girdwood which is about 40 miles or so from Anchorage. We had some of the best weather, it was absolutley gorgeous! The hike started behind the Alyeska Hotel which is home to Alaska's only ski resort. The hike was five miles round trip and completely beautiful. It was so lush and green, with moss everywhere, and crystal clear rivers and creeks running through. The best part was the Hand Tram that took us over the cliffs and running water. It was a superb hike and we couldn't have asked for better weather!
Today, I got all churchy and went to the Anchorage Temple. It is small, but it sure is beautiful. This time I got there on time and was able to do a session. About two weeks ago I made an appointment to go and got there late and they wouldn't let me in. I realized I wasn't in Utah where if you miss the session you can just wait 20 to 40 minutes for the next one. Oh well, I did see some of my Mormon coworkers after they came out and we sat and visited for a while.
All and all it was another great three day.

I have to say - I have eaten at such a place in Salina it is not much to look at but that was the best breakfast food I have ever had. You look like you are having so much fun...
