We had another camping weekend here. This time we headed to copper center. There is a great lodge there we have been wanting to check out for when hubby's parents come up next summer and the reds were running up the Klutina river so fishing was on!

The drive and weather were great, except Sunday so we just packed up and headed home. Hubby caught a few nice sized salmon. We bought caught a cold from baby-who played how filthy can I get all weekend. It is really hard when every instinct you have wants you to keep them warm, clean and dry to let your baby get dirty and wet!

The lodge was awesome. We drank Alaskan beers on the patio overlooking the Klutina river. Baby tried her first taste of Alaskan crab and ice cream. Both I believe are on the "not until 1 year list" buy we figured, hmmm hundreds of miles from home in the Alaskan wilderness- sure why not try it. Maybe the stunning view of Mount Drum and beers clouded our judgement. Baby thought the crab was yummy and oh my gosh did she love the Matsu creamery ice cream!! She was eating it so fast and would scream because we couldn't shovel it in fast enough. I guess treats are good in moderation. We better never stock this at home or she will find a way to climb into the freezer.

We are enjoying the last few weeks of summer.
