Did you know: Antarctica is the windiest place on earth.
Thought of the day: I'm looking back and reading my blog and it's more of a journal for me than what it started out as. It used to be for people to read up on The Wildboyz and what random craziness we'd be up to for our website and I'd post pictures and write as if the world were reading. Now I just write weird comments that are for myself so I can recall what happened (I have a horrid memory) and you're in for the ride. Not sure who my readers are, I don't have a target audience, but I do know that I like taking pictures, sharing memories w/ friends, and writing whatever I want.
Food for thought:
Savory deviled eggs w/ spinach, ham and parmesan. Interesting twist, I must try.

I collect chess boards and socks. I was hoping for something like Whalers Vs Whales but couldn't find none.
Not much was open Sunday morning so we ended up eating here. Why not try Mexican food in Alaska. Funny thing was it was run by Filipinos.
Look in the Fur Rondy guide to see what was crackin today and ended up at the United States first ever Yukigassen aka snowball fight.
Plenty of places to run and hide. Imagine paintball and capture the flag. You either eliminate the other team, capture their flag, or have more players left when time runs out. Dope.
Each team had many bins of perfectly rounded ammo. It was pretty awesome. Winning team went to Japan to compete as the USA's first Yukigassen team.
View from the other side. There were hallways up, down, and along this area lined w/ unbelievable art from kids of all ages.
Upstairs it was a real Smithsonian Exhibit! Look at the screens, set up, etc. It was one of the most impressive museum displays I've ever seen in my life.
This hall was rad cuz it had different areas w/ different surround sound that gave you different tastes of Alaska.
And of course they had the regular museum stuff w/ the history of Alaska. Check out the fishing net the size of the boat!
Drew playing w/ stop motion and full on sound effects!
There was also and area similar to the Birch aquarium w/ jellyfish, alligators, sea cucumbers, starfish, etc. I'm telling this place is magnificent.
It was a very interesting night that could have ended up horribly awful, awesome, and full of stories. But I think it turned out for the better. You can ask Drew or I about it later.
