Hey Everybody! It's Abby and Annie! Today was EPIC! Our journey began at 4:45 a.m. We voyaged across the Kenai Peninsula to Seward sledding and whale watching!!!!!  The dog sled, as seen in the photo above, was rigged up for our "Ididaride." The dogs were so excited to pull us. They were all very ferocious and  powerful (and by that we mean fluffy and adorable!). They were wet, and mildly stinky, but we pet them anyway! We met more celebrities than expected today. We met Hugo, the lead dog from the Disney Movie Snow Dogs! We also met Danny Seavey, from the famous Seavey family who are known for their victories in the Iditarod. Grandpa Seavey was one of the founders of the Iditarod and it was really great to hear about the history behind the race. We know you're all wondering and yes...we got to see the puppies!!!! They were sweet and fuzzy and we were tempted to sneak them away into our vans! Did we mention we like dogs? ;-) After we had our fill of dog hair and slobber, we went whale watching. We were lucky to see so much wildlife on this rainy/sleety/snowy day. We saw 4 or 5 humpback whales, lots of stellar sea lions, a lonely sea otter and many sea birds from the boat. We all survived our voyage through the sea and celebrated with a delicious warm cookie as we headed back to Seward.
