Our End-of-the-Year News for 2007

Alvin and I were married in the Manti Temple June 2, 2007. Our honeymoon road trip through Canada was fraught with peril (we passed a dozen black bears) and hidden treasures (Alvin panned a couple flecks of gold). After a three-month internship in Anchorage interspersed by adventurous weekends exploring the trails and glaciers of Alaska, we moved to Laura’s house in South Jordan, Utah. Here is a typical day in the Anderson family:

6:00 Laura gets up to go running or swim laps
7:00 Alvin gets up, turns on NPR, and eats breakfast
7:30 Laura leaves for work at Roy & Associates Consulting Actuaries
8:00 Alvin works on his thesis at home. He’s writing about the geology in the Uinta Mountains.
10:00 Laura puts the finishing touches on a computer program that will calculate retirement benefits
11:00 Distracted by a flock of geese outside the window, Alvin races outside, grabbing his camera on the way, and captures the geese migration on video
4:00 Laura leaves work to battle the traffic on I-15
4:30 Alvin calls Laura’s cell to ask what he should cook for dinner
6:00 Over dinner, Alvin recounts the latest developments in Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign
8:00 Alvin and Laura play a close round of ping-pong in the living room before joining Laura’s sisters (who share the house) for a movie

We both agree that marriage is better than ice cream, and we make it a point to enjoy both every day!

Merry Christmas, all you friends and family!

Photos from Alaska!

Here are a few photos from our summer in Alaska. What an incredible place. I think our favorite trips were to Cordova, Denali and Talkeetna .

That's Anchorage, and the tall gold building is the ConocoPhillips tower where Alvin worked this summer. On the 17th floor, no less, in an office with huge south-facing windows. The smiley-sticker is compliments of Walmart, where we had just purchased a bottle of diet Coke and a pack of Mentos for a 'scientific experiment.'
