Today we changed to the Bridgewater Hotel in the heart of downtown. It has a lovely flower garden and is located on the Chena River. It is famous as hosting President Harding in 1923, infamous as Will Rogers and Wiley Post spent their last night here prior to the plane crash that killed them both in 1935. We recited some of the quotes we remembered by Will Rogers, as Reed had impersonated him in Reed's fourth grade history project. "I never met a man I didn't like." "I don't belong to any organized politcal party. I'm a Democrat."
It feels odd typing this now as the boys drift off to sleep with the sun is still shining brightly outside.
