BACK FROM ALASKA.....KINDA

BACK FROM ALASKA... BUT STILL NOT READY FOR REALITY!!
AMAZING TRIP...AND CRUISING IS AN IDEAL WAY TO SEE EVERYTHING.  EVERYTIME WE LOOKED OUTSIDE THERE WAS A WHALE...FANTASTIC ENTERTAIMENT....ALTHOUGH MY HUSBAND GOT A LITTLE  IRRITATED ABOUT THE LACK OF DINNER CONVERSATION.....SINCE THE REST OF US STARED OUT THE WINDOW THE ENTIRE TIME WAITING FOR ANOTHER WHALE SIGHTING!

OUR FIRST EXCURSION WAS IN JUNEAU  CALLED A "FLOAT TRIP".....WASN'T SURE WHY THEY HAD US DRESSED IN THE WATERPROOF GEAR UNTIL WE HIT THE CLASS 3 AND 4 RAPIDS!! I HAD BUCKETS FULL OF 33 DEGREE GLACIER WATER THAT MANAGED TO FIND A TINY CRACK IN BETWEEN MY NECK AND MY PROTECTIVE WATERPROOF GEAR....DRENCHED.....BUT TOTALLY WORTH IT....THE KIDS LOVED LOVED LOVED IT... AND I DID TOO!






MY ATTEMPTS TO GET MY KIDS TO ACTUALLY SMILE AND POSE FOR A PICTURE ARE ALWAYS UNSUCCESSFUL.....BUT THE SCENERY BEHIND US AT GLACIER BAY WAS AMAZING!
THE LEGO ACTION FIGURES SOMEHOW MADE IT ON BOARD...ALL 100 OF THEM!













BEAUTIFUL TURQUOISE LAKES!

 A POPULAR PASTIME....BASKETBALL COURT!
WE WERE ALL EXCITED ABOUT THE FREE UPGRADE TO A BALCONY CABIN!!

A TRIP WITH PRICELESS MEMORIES....THIS IS WHY I LOVE TO TRAVEL!!
