From Daddy: The highlight of our roughly day and a half in Fairbanks Alaska was a visit to the Fairbanks Ice Museum. We saw a fun video on ice sculptures (that was too long), and then got to visit their displays. He also got to sled down an ice ramp! (Click below or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrezMSJrC7k

One of the best parts of the experience was the cold room. Why? Because summer in Fairbanks is very warm and we loved the cold!

Earlier in the day–very interesting but not as great as the Ice Museum–we visited Pioneer Park. Here’s a video of his training for American Ninja Warrior at its playground (or click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwPeFuONJdM):
