This is the first in a series of summer posts. The topics are all related to SP Kennel in some way and are mostly my impressions of our little corner of Interior Alaska during these warmer months. Hope you enjoy!!
Late spring here is inconsistent at best! Mickey and Doug (Aliy's parents) arrived from Florida last Sunday when the Fairbanks area was touting sun and 80 degrees. Monday through Thursday the high was 50 degrees and it poured rain. I wore heavy socks and a hooded jacket under rain gear.
Today the National Weather Service forecast for the Middle Tanana Valley (FAI and vicinity) is..... Partly cloudy, scattered rain showers in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 70's.
To all you Interior Alaska visitors: Be prepared for dramatic weather fluctuations.
Doug and I live in our little 'cabin in the woods' in Two Rivers AK. We have a huge extended family nearby. Aliy, Allen and the SP canine crew are just down the street. Our daughter, Kaz, her husband, Ray, and their son, Sammy, are around the corner.
Allen's daughters, Jennifer and Bridgett, and their families are here. Jennifer, Kevin and their son, Jacob, live in Fairbanks. Bridgett, Scotty and their son, Timber, live just west of town.
Meghan is still here in two Rivers. Ryne is here too.
We just keep accumulating family! How great is that?

SP Kennel canine matriarch, Chacha, and human matriarch, Mickey were elated to see each other. The two Grannys plan to enjoy fun and family together at SP Kennel this summer.
