Our first Cruise~Alaska

This is the first cruise we've ever taken so I've posted a lot of pictures. I did an oops though. My pictures actually start from the bottom going up. I can't believe I did that! This was one of the best vacations ever. The boys had a great time and so did we. We loved cruising with Pat and Joe, they are a lot of fun. Can't wait to do another one.

My dragonfly that a fellow cruiser made for me. He and his wife were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. He had a whole backpack filled with balloons, making fancy colorful balloon animals for everyone that wanted one.



It was cold outside while the boat was moving!

Every evening we would come to our room with a different towel animal adorning our beds. So cute!

Mendenhall Glaciers~Absolutly breathtaking







Friends of my brother and sister in law came to the dock and picked us up and treated us to a cruise of their own on their beautiful boat.

I was just daydreaming about the cruise.... I love that photo of the wine glass with the glacier in the background. I think we brought home the good weather. We put up the badmitton net and we're golfing at China Creek at 4:00 today. I love summer!
