We had a sleepover party for Ralph's 9th birthday this past Friday. We had a bonfire and toasted some marshmallows, but it wasn't dark. The kids played outside until about 11 and it just felt like it was the middle of the afternoon. It is taking a little more getting use to then the darkness, but its not bad- just different.
Last month, for my birthday, we went out to dinner at restaurant in Anchorage called Simon and Seafort's. It was soooo delicious! We had a gorgeous view from our seats out over the Cook Inlet out to the mountains. At that time the sunset was just after 9pm, so we were able to watch it. It was great.
