Our last day/night in Anchorage was pretty laid back, like our usual last days in Anchorage. We did most of our shopping yesterday, so today was spent just tying up some loose ends. We went to the mall, and from the parking garage, we caught a glimpse of Denali/Mt. McKinley! It was amazing! We have both seen it from the Parks Hwy., flown over it, and drove up to it. It somehow never gets old! I didn’t feel it would be appropriate to crop this picture, or shrink it down.
We did some other things, etc. Then Joey suggested we go to Chuck E. Cheese for din din and some games! Heck yes, Joey! One of our favorite things to do is to go to Chuck E. Cheese. Down south, we like to take our youngest nephew, but in Anchorage we usually go alone. Surprisingly, we rarely get any strange looks! We’re just there for some pizza and good clean fun! Some of my fellow coworkers like to come to town to visit a bar, but that’s not us. We like to remember and enjoy every minute in town, since trips are so few and far between. Plus, I really don’t need any more toxins than I already have. 🙂 I am super competitive… Joey is not. We usually add our tickets separately, and then I rub it in for two days how I won the most, or I sulk for two days about how I should have beaten him by winning more tickets. He thinks the whole thing is silly. He just wants to have fun and play Skee Ball. Silly Joey. We decided to add our tickets together since our collection of receipts is quite large. One day our nephew will have a field day with all those tickets. For the record, 142 of those were mine, less than 100 were Joeys, and the rest were mutually won at the Deal or No Deal game. Do you love my nails? I used the end of a bobby pin to make the dots.
Joey mentioned that we needed to pick up a turkey for Freddy. Freddy likes left overs and wanted a 20 pounder for himself. Joey said we could just get it and some ice cream on the way to the airport tomorrow. I suggested we just get it and leave it in the car. It’s 9* outside, I don’t think anything would happen to the turkey or ice cream! So we did. I wanted to get the 19.68 lb turkey for Freddy, but Joey thought the 18.28 lb (smallest turkey left) was good enough. Sorry Freddy, I tried!
Tomorrow we will head back to the village for a few weeks until Christmas. I can’t wait for the parade and all the Thanksgiving fun in the village!
