Alaskan Cruise

We just got back from our first cruise. We went with my whole family (except for the three little girlies, we missed them!) and had a blast. I think we all weigh a little more now from the awesome food. Fancy five course (or eight depending on how many entrées were ordered) meals every night doesn't help with losing weight but why else would you go on a cruise. Our waiter, Sudarno, was great; probably thought we were crazy with the amount of juice we drank and for wanting "After eight" ice cream so bad.
I loved being with the family for the whole week, playing games, hiking, sight seeing, etc. We saw two bears, a ton of bald eagles (Juneau pigeons), seals, a whale far away, Hubbard glacier (I felt like we were on Titanic when we were slowing going through the ice berg filled water!), Ketchikan with a crazy tour guide, Prince Ruppert (the best thing there was our frisbee), and Juneau. We did a lot of fun things- THANK YOU Mom and Dad, we love you.
(More picture's to come when we get them from Amy and Mom)

Alaska, its so beautiful. Did you stop on the Wrangell Island. My mom use to live there. Once I was flying up to see her over christmas. the weather was so bad they wouldn't fly us into Wrangell. I spent the night all by myself in Ketichikan (sp?), How fun
