Alaska With Younger Grandkids

Another year, another grandkids trip

sunny 95 °F

Last year we decided that it would be good to take the “3 littles”, our younger 3 grandkids, to Alaska. The trip seemed like a long time away, especially since we’ve been on the road so much, and bought the tickets so long ago.

I’d priced tickets, and although we’d rather have flown from Bakersfield, the tickets from LAX were ½ of the price. So on Monday, Dale and I, 2- 7-year olds, and a 9-year old, will drive to LAX then fly to Anchorage.

This trip is much like the other grandkids trip and the ones we took our boys on, but this one will last 10 days. The sites and tours will be the same as we took the older grandkids on.

So far we have tickets to go on a Kenai Fjords cruise, a visit to the Seavey sled dogs, and camping inside of Denali for 5 nights.

Our granddaughter has been on a plane but does not remember it. The other 2 have not flown before. Our younger grandson was afraid then decided a teddy would be good to sit with him. We bought a teddy so he now says he is not afraid.
We bought each kid 2 movies of their choice and have several more to take. We will take our laptops for the movies to watch when driving or an evening after running all day.

Each kid has a camera and a walkie talkie. We are prepping them on using everything now.

2 backpacks are packed but there is lots more to pack and ready for Monday morning.
