House Hunting

Getting ready to head out on the lake.
We were looking for houses and found moose instead.
At the ocean.
Our yard - the blue through the trees is the lake.
Our yard from our log deck.
May 30, Doug and I came to Kenai for our house hunting trip.  We spent four FULL days looking at every house on the market in our price range.  In the end, we made an offer on our realtor's house, which was not on the market.  It is almost 3300 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms on 3/4 acres.  It comes with all sorts of Alaskan toys, so we won't have to save up for our adventures.  We will have 4 boats, 3 canoes, 5 snowmobiles, an RV, fishing gear, snowshoes, and cross-country skis.  The owners are moving to Texas, so they are leaving us all of their winter stuff.  Not only that, but they are leaving us their log beds, which I am pretty excited about.  They also don't want to move their pool table, foosball table, hockey table, and washer and dryer.  Basically, they walked us through the house and asked us what we wanted.  We are also purchasing the property across the street which has the boat dock on the lake.

How beautiful! I wish we could afford to fly up there for the weekend and visit you guys. Aaron keeps asking about Brenden. Poor kid! It will be nice when he starts school and has some friends to bum around with.

Wow, sounds like you guys got quite a haul! Congrats on the new house and accessories! Jens has been unusually homesick for Alaska recently. Unfortunately, with a new baby, it's not the best time for a getaway.
