We received a postcard this week from Fairbanks, Alaska.
It was slightly confusing to Sunshine, as it is a "Canadian Postcard" club ... but we embraced it. Speedy had fun finding it on our map. He knew where Canada was, and where he thought all the United States were ... but he DID find it!
We found out that Fairbanks is a 46 hour and 40 minute drive from our house. When we were writing our postcard to them and enjoying an afternoon snack, the family in Alaska was just sitting down for lunch as we are three hours ahead of them. For Speedy, though, it was the sheer number of volcanoes, particularily active volcanoes in Alaska, that caught his attention!
