Kellys back in Anchorage

Like it says Kelly is back in Anchorage now so I can call him again! Yeah!

He uploaded a bunch of pictures for me to see where he was and what he was doing and I thought I would share a few with you....just a few....well my kind of few.

First I will show you one of the things that scare the crap out of me when he goes on these trips.

See this plane? I think he likes them. Me not so much. They are small and I don't know what it is but they freak me out and the thought of him flying around in one of these does not make me very comfortable.

Here is the cabin he was staying in and the Suburban he drove while he was there.

I've had a lot of you ask me exactly what it is he does. Well this kind of shows it. He fixes and takes these kind of things apart to fix, build or something. Honestly I don't know exactly everything he does with them other then he gets frustrated because something always goes wrong with these things. This one is an excavator. Hmm I really need him to write something here explaining it better. This is a hint Kelly leave a comment or something for me....please. Explain..... I just know they are really big.

I think one of the things he likes when going in those scary airplanes is the awesome views he gets to see. Here's a collage of the pictures he sent me of his view while there and in the plane. Pretty awesome don't you think?

I love mountains.

hi terri, thanks for sharing a bit of your husband's work with us. the pics are beautiful. i love the collage of the ones he took while in the air. the mountains are spectacular also.

i'm glad he's back to where he has phone connection with you. didn't seem like 2 weeks though, but to you, i'm sure it was like a lifetime. *lol*

anyway, not too much longer before you'll all be re-united. have a great weekend, you and the children.

So pleased Kelly is back and you are now able to have daily contact with him.

The plane looks similar to what I learnt to fly on. Great photo's of Alaska too and of the work Kelly has to do. A skill always in demand - I would imagine. Perhaps Izzak will follow his dad into that work.

Hope you have a great weekend.

What a tiny little cabin! Aren't you glad you aren't trying to fit all 6 of you in it??

Nice pics. Hey I am just being nosy here but I was wondering who takes care of the kids during the summer, now that you are working again?

Steffi said...

Beautiful pictures!It´s good to hear that you have now contact with your Kelli again!
The plane looks good but that´s nothing to me because I don´t like to fly with so little planes... ;O)!
Have a nice weekend!

Way cool.

YAAAAAAAAAAAY! I am so in awe of people who can take things apart and reassemble them. It's all magic ju-ju to me.

I'm so glad for you.

Beautiful pictures Terri. I got on one of those planes before - and boy, I was grabbing my seat the whole time.

Those views are gorgeous! But riding that small plane would scare the bejesus out of me! I wondered what your hubby's line of work was. Thanks for sharing!

I couldn't leave a comment yesterday- just wanted to say those are some lovely photos I particularly like the one of the mountain. I agree with you that plane looks a bit small, but I guess you get used to it if you use them all the time.

Pamela said...

well.. he hasn't popped in to explain it yet.

I would like flying and seeing all those things. enchanting alaska... wow.

The excvator is also called a backhoe. And since it travels on "tracks", it is often times also referred to as a "track-hoe".

It's for digging. Trenches, holes or what ever diggin' needs dug.

It operates on hydraulics and takes a skilled mechanic type dude to keep it running and functioning smoothly.

My hat's off to Kelly. He does not have an easy job.
