I’ve just returned from a much needed break with my family. We all need a little R & R at times. It’s been a nice break. I’m so thankful that all my kids could make it. For those of you with adult children you know how challenging it can be to get everyone together, let alone for a whole week!
Just a little glimpse into our Alaskan Cruise.
Baby Joe’s the only one that didn’t come. We didn’t think this vacation was a good fit for a 1 year old. From left to right – Jason (kiddo #3), Ryan (kiddo #1), Bethany (Ryan’s wife), Sam (Ryan and Bethany’s first), Bethany (kiddo #2), and Jeff (Bethany’s husband). I love them all so much! They are each amazing people.
We cruised the inside passage in Alaska. We sailed from Seattle on a beautiful sunny day.
Ketchikan ~ Juneau ~ and Skagway where the ports we visited. Also spent a morning cruising the Tracy Arm Fjord.
Jason and I cruised the Misty Fjords in Ketchikan. The kids and I visited the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau and a large group of us took a trip through the mountainside on the White Pass railway in Skagway.
Throughout the trip we were delighted to see some fun wild life that we don’t see here at home. Bear climbing a tree, a beautiful Caribou just staring at the train, mama seals with their babies, orca’s, killer whales, porpoises. It was pretty amazing!
Alaska was experiencing a bought of unusually nice weather while we were there. It was great!
Now I’m going to leave you with a string of my favorite pictures from the trip. this is when my web-guy would say, “wow! that was a content rich post”! I think that means I got carried away with the pictures!
Last but not least, this is Sam in his suit for formal night on the ship. He was the most handsome fella there (trust me, he got LOTS of attention from the ladies)!
Whether you have a big vacation planned for this summer or not, be sure to make a little R & R time for yourself.
Thanks for visiting!
Blessings ~ Terri
