Spectacular Dantes View

Image
It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around. It wasn't crowded at all in fact we were the only ones there enjoying the 360 degrees of breathtaking view of Death Valley from 5475 ft high above Sea Level.  We didn't stay long because it was windy and cold.  It would have been nice to explore the area but it was also getting late in a day. There was a Bee Hazard caution sign on the road but we didn't even get the change to see any. Maybe it's because we

Alan 1/2 year

Time went fast! Alan is already 6 month old. I can't believe how fast he'd grown, he looks like he's not a preemie baby. According to the baby growth chart, his length was already in 75 percentiles and his weight in 50 percentiles. Breast milk rocks! I drove my truck yesterday, first time for over 6 months. A bit scared but I'm glad the road isn't that bad anymore. hmm.. I heard the nurse said I can have some My Life  With Photographs Lorena G. Sims

Waiting for Aurora Borealis Display

Image
I'm staying up late hoping to see some Aurora Borealis display. It was forecast that there will be a good display tonight due to coronal holes. I don't know how good the display from downtown Fairbanks though since there's a lot of lights around. I wish I'm up somewhere away from the city lights and I wish I have a better camera to use so I can take some good pictures. The best Aurora Borealis display I've ever seen was the one in Valdez, Alaska in 2001. It was very colorful almost looks like blood in the sky. I felt bad and sad that I didn't get to take pictures of it. Anyway, here are some Aurora Borealis pictures from Wikipedia . My Life  With Photographs Lorena G. Sims

Update on 100K Baby

Image
I am so blessed! God is indeed greater than my worries and problems. I am still in awe to the blessings that I and my family received. In my 100k baby post I mentioned that I trust in God to help us get through our financial problems and yes he did! and did it big time. From owing almost 100k medical bills to less than $20k. Awesome! The hospital dropped all their charges and my OBGYN doctor cut my bills in half. The pediatrician bills ho wever are still pending, we are still waiting for their decision if they are going to give us a break or not. But anyway, at least our bills now are payable and will not make us go hungry or homel ess . Now, we can save our money towards our baby's future and not to medical bills. Although some of our medical bills are already in collection ag ency but I have no fear, I know it ruins my credit score but it will get paid in time if not soon . God is good all the time! I am very grateful for God's blessing an d thankful for the per
