How my boy got a fractured collar bone?

Image
My 6 years old boy was so happy to finally learned to ride his bike without the training wheels. His dad took him to the Sunrisers Rotary Playground where he rode his bike all the way there from our house. At the playground, he was riding the hand powered merry go round with about 8 kids and 2 parents making it to go round. Alan my boy was leaning a little bit further out and all of the sudden he was thrown out and landed on his left shoulder and that's how he got a fractured collar bone. My husband took him to the clinic they did 3 x-rays and they referred him to see an orthopedic.The doctor gave him a back/shoulder brace to help the bone keep in place. However that was so uncomfortable for him to sleep last night. He kept waking up whining it hurts. When we saw an orthopedic today, he said the bone should heal up on it's own. Given time with his age ( He is at the magic age, 1 week per age year) he should be good a little after 6 weeks.  The doctor also said he doesn

Why I Ride My Bike to Work?

Image
May is national bike month and this week (May 13-19) is bike to work week and May 17 is bike to work day.  This year, I started riding my bike on May 1st and been doing it whenever I  possible  can. I'm a fair weather rider. I don't like riding my bike in the rain and especially not while it's snowing. Someone at work asked me why I ride my bike to work? what's the reason? is it for fitness? or did you get a DUI? Oh heck no, I did not get a DUI, and probably will never get one.  I'm riding my bike to work because I love riding it and also I get my workout done at the same time. It's only a 10 mile round trip ride but it's a good enough distance to get my workout in for the day. My first day of riding my bike to work - May 1st, 2019 On my way to work Can you spot the sign?

Zinfandel to Celebrate the Last Letter of A to Z Blogging Challenge

Image
Today is the last letter of A to Z  blogging challenge for the month of April. It was a tough month for me, having to choose which experience to post and looking through thousands of photos and  deciding which one to used. It was hard but also rewarding. I get to share my photos and experiences of living in Fairbanks, Alaska. For my letter Z, my husband went to Fred Meyer and got me Arbor Mist White Zinfandel. He knows that I spent a lot of time blogging this month and he suggested I do Zinfandel for Z to celebrate getting through the A to Z blogging challenge. Looking back through the years, going through photos, memories,  and blogging about it made me appreciate the LIFE more. And also making me want to do more adventures out there with my family.  Living life and not just existing. White Zinfandel - To celebrate the last letter of A to Z blogging challenge. Only 6% alcohol. I rarely drink alcoholic beverages and this is good enough for me. The final letter, t

Xtreme Cold Weather Experience in Fairbanks

Image
It was in January of 2017 a cold week about -30 to -40 below zero degree fahrenheit we still have to go to work. The forecast said the temp could go -50 the next day. Before I left work,  I asked my coworker what's our policy about working in these temperature. She told me that if at 6 in the morning, if the temperature is -50 below then we don't have to come to work. The next day at 6am our temperature was -49°F. We still have to go to work but I know it's going to be bad on my vehicle to drive in this temperature so I decided to stay home. Only few people showed up at work that day, including my co-worker and she was the only one who showed up in our department. By 9am, the temperature went deep down more than -50 below fahrenheit and everyone who showed up to work was dismissed and was sent home. That day, there were also some vehicles on the road that quit working because of the extreme cold. It was cold but GOT TO have my friends experienced the forty below tem

Worthington Glacier Visits

Image
Located off Richardson highway 28 miles to Valdez, Alaska. Worthington Glacier is conveniently located off Richardson highway. This is a really good stop to stretch, explore, and take lots of photos.  An easy access from the road and a short hike to get in touch with the glacier. If you haven't seen a glacier before, I would highly recommend this place and a drive to Valdez from here is absolutely beautiful. It is sad though seeing how much the glacier had retreated over time.  I wish I could find the pictures we took in 2001 and 2002 to add it here. A big difference since then, global warming is real!

Valdez Alaska Fishing Trip

Image
I always love the trip down to Valdez Alaska even though it takes several hours to get there. From my house in Fairbanks to Valdez  is about 362 miles away. I have lived in Valdez two different times and I love it! A quaint small town. Our fishing trip to Valdez last year was nice. We had a great time, the weather was nice, and the sun was out. However, our trip was more like a family trip and not a fishing trip down to Valdez  because we came home with no fish. Nada! The only fish I caught, the bear took it ( Bear in Our Campsite ) It's all good though since we already have some fish from our previous fishing trips. Beautiful water over Valdez Inlet Valdez, Alaska Valdez Small Boat Harbor Gateway to Prince William Sound It was a beautiful day in Valdez. We were launching our boat to the harbor. It's a nice harbor, easy in and out. Not crowded at all when we were there. Valdez Harbor View of Bear Paw Campground near Valdez Harbor Valdez Inlet
