Talk about your once in a lifetime opportunity. We had the privilege of traveling to Alaska AND we got to spend time with the fine people of Young Life in the Mat-Su Valley!

When we left the Girls Getaway Cruise in South Florida it was 80 degrees. When we landed a couple days later in Anchorage it was -11! What a transition!

But that didn’t stop us from having a great time. And the hospitality from all of you was amazing!

We took the time to drive out to a glacier and then we discovered some great burgers at RW’s near Palmer. We’re always in search of a good burger and this one didn’t disappoint.

The turnout at the show was great! A big crowd of all ages came out for some laughs and you brought some energy with you!

Your creativity ranged from Piggly Wiggly to a pony walking on it’s tail early in the show. And after you got warmed up we wandered into the Jello Gnome and the Flame Throwing Trumpet.

I loved Mike’s impersonation of toilet paper. And that suggestion of the Butler Convention was one of the best of all time!

After the show we got in some quality Jasper time. We even completed some long distance Jasper. Good times!

Honestly, this trip is about the coldest I’ve ever been, but I would come back in a heartbeat! I love the work Young Life has done and is now doing in the Mat-Su Valley. And we feel blessed to be a small part of it.

So, when do we get to do this again??!!
