Well it is now Friday and I have a lot to catch up on since I arrived late Tuesday night.

By the time my plane landed it was 11:30 Alaska time. My sister picked me up and it was so wonderful to see her! We arrived at the house where I was greeted by the “welcoming committee”:

They are all rescues and are super sweet. This was my first time meeting Buck since he was adopted after my visit last year.

Despite eating dinner before my flight left from Denver I was hungry by the time my flight got in and had leftover kabobs at the house-bacon wrapped chicken with mushrooms and pineapple straight from the bowl because I am classy like that.

On Wednesday my sister was working but my brother-in-law was off and we had fun doing this:

After being outside all day it was followed by the Fairbanks Goldpanners baseball game and then consumption of a key lime martini at The Pump House.

Thursday I went to lunch with my sister and also had a delicious mocha:

Friday my sister and I went for a walk first thing but the Mosquitos were absolutely ridiculous so we did not stay too long. They were biting our arms, legs, face, ears…it was horrible.

Our remedy for the day was going out for sushi and fro yo for lunch.
At Irasha we split the Tom and Jerry which was deep fried rice, spicy tuna, avocado and some type of sauce

I had the Mt. McKinley roll

Here is mine and my sister’s. She ordered the lighthouse roll (pictured in front) which had a light surrounded by cucumber. Both were delicious!

Afterwards we went to honeydew’s frozen yogurt. I had cake batter and chocolate with brownie bites, chocolate chips, sprinkles, M & M’s, and snickers with a cherry on top

After running errands I promptly fell asleep due to my consumption of a dose of Benedryl due to the previously mentioned mosquito incident.

Dinner tonight was homemade personal pizza’s on the grill. This was my first time having pizza on the grill and I will definitely have to do this again.

Mine had sauce, mozzarella cheese, sage sausage, prosciutto, pineapple, onions, and green peppers.

I also enjoyed a midori margarita on the deck. I am enjoying being able to have access to a real deal deck, especially for eating dinner.

Now it is time to relax on the couch. A special event is planned for tomorrow night.
