1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 26 - Gallery! on: February 01, 2018 06:02:17 AM


(I don't know if the photo is actually uploading properly because it isn't showing up in preview, so just in case, here's the IG link so I don't have to go back and edit the post... https://www.instagram.com/p/BeeEvruBSC5/?taken-by=lvbaranof )

Baranof was very helpful during the first night of our new Dungeons & Dragons campaign, keeping watch over my hit points and handing me the right dice. The thing behind him in the photo is a little prototype balsa wood dice tower my husband made. (For the uninitiated, you drop your dice in the top and they 'roll' in the little tray at the bottom, so your dice rolls aren't all over - and off the edge of - the table).

We were in Alaska working on the boat for a week and as luck would have it, our second to last night there was the night Alaska was hit with a 7.9 earthquake. So we woke at 1:30am to tsunami sirens blaring and telling us to evacuate immediately. I have a six year old and a 6 month old so we rushed to dress them and run up the dock to the loaner truck we had from the processing plant and drive to high ground. Sitka has roughly 8,800 residents and the entire "highway" system is 14 miles from end to end. Only two roads go high enough off of that to be considered safe. So everyone is headed up those few roads to the same couple evacuation centers. It's pretty crazy. The truck the processor loaned us had bald tires and it had just snowed so we barely made it up the road. It was chaos. We sat there for hours while the sirens blared, waiting for either the tsunami to hit or the all clear to sound. It finally sounded around 3:30 am. Thankfully the quake wasn't the kind that creates a huge tsunami so the wave was very very small. I only got one very fuzzy photo of Anana on the dash while we were stuck in traffic -


So glad you and your family (and Anana) are okay! The photos from the park are amazing... so beautiful!

Who would be happy with an extension to mid February?
A couple participants didn't recieve their LV's until really late so I was thinking about pushing send outs off a bit.


Yes please! Baranof still won't make it to Hershey with me but we can spend more time on his scrapbook  Grin

I'm also getting the error message  Huh So for now, IG links!

My husband's match day (urology residencies match two months early... I have no clue why) was last Thursday, and we learned that we're moving to...

Hershey, PA! I won't be moving there until December so I'll have two more LVs to show around Virginia. We'll be visiting in February to scope out our new home, but it'll be after Baranof returns home.

We celebrated the news by doing something we've often considered... getting a sushi boat!

We have also recently taken a walk on the beach:

And we are behind on working on the scrapbook so it looks like that's our weekend project...  Grin

We were hit by the huge snowstorm! We have power, and heat, and water, so really it's just a matter of waiting around until the roads are driveable (which, this is Virginia Beach... we aren't great at snowplowing and road salting so it'll be a few more days, since it isn't warm enough to melt anything yet).



We got a whole Baranof of snow:

And of course, when you come back inside, you need a hot chocolate with a whole bunch of marshmallows and a huge pile of library books:

Happy new year!!!

We always make fondue and invite a ton of people over, but about 90% of the people we usually invite have newborns this year, so we only had one guest. Luckily, he's the same person we're planning on playing D&D with coming up soon, so we used the time to start building our characters (#newyearnewyou !)



Baranof says cheers to a new year!



And of course, his IG: www.instagram.com/lvbaranof

Awesome, Anana saw orcas!!! The coolest thing I've ever seen in the ocean here is the occasional distant dolphin.

Happy holidays everyone!


We made mulled wine, which smells very Christmassy.


Since it's hard to get everyone together twice in one month, we had our Hanukkah dinner (LATKES!!!) on Christmas Day. (We are very efficient.)


We don't normally play, but this year I brought dreidels and gelt! Here, Baranof got nun, which means he doesn't get any gelt (but he also doesn't have to put any in, either... which is good, because look at how low our pile is getting!).


We also went to play Top Golf on Boxing Day with my MIL, SIL, and her boyfriend.

A few more on Baranof's IG: www.instagram.com/lvbaranof

So we've had a lot of fun! Time to clean up post-holiday and prepare for the new year!

We went BACK to Busch Gardens, this time for Christmas Town! They cover the most beautiful theme park in America with 8 billion bulbs, and every "country" (area of the park) has a different Christmas-y theme (France is the 12 days of Christmas in silver/pink/blue, Ireland has a pinecones/green garland and white lights and candles theme, etc.) It's gorgeous and lovely and everything smells like pine and there are way more photos on Baranof's IG: www.instagram.com/lvbaranof/

We went to the Green Flash brewery with Baranof today, and...


...enjoyed a beer by the outdoor glass fire pit (it's about 45F out, so we sat on the side where the wind would blow the warm air at us!), and...


...bought some very fancy local chocolates from the Christmas market, along with a little gift shopping.

Not terribly exciting, but we will be going on a real adventure tomorrow... back to somewhere we've been before, but it will look very different!!!

We've had some lovely weather this week so we played hooky and took a few hours off to visit Busch Gardens Tampa! Here's a sneak of some of the animals we saw.


I love that you and your LV went to what we think of as the "other" Busch Gardens, and I took mine to "our" Busch Gardens! (We're actually going to go back for Christmastown in December  Grin )
