10th Anniversary Alaskan Cruise Part 2

Image

Excursion to Yukon Territory, BC

Image

Image

The little tourist trap we stopped at was really lame but I got to hold a puppy that will be trained for the Iditarod, so that was awesome.

Image

Image

Image

Image

On our train ride back we got a glimpse of the real trail, I can’t even imagine taking it on foot…

A not so great picture of a whale.

In Ketchikan, Alaska!

ImageImage

It was so green, plants were growing everywhere.

Our day trip in Juneau was to this beautiful glacier, there were tons of these beautiful flowers.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

 

After the morning in Juneau we were back on the ship to go see another glacier, it was beautiful outside so I got some reading in while Rob hung out in the sauna.  The ship wasnt able to get very close to the glacier due to the weather and little icebergs but the ride in was amazing.

“Hiking” Silver Lake with Jen and Lincoln, I am sad we didn’t make it up there more this summer.

“Hiking” Cascade Springs, again sad we didn’t make it there more often.

Image

We love Family Nights at Thanksgiving Point (even more when our friends join us!)

Image

Image

I took the kids to the zoo by myself, it was our first trip without the stroller and by myself and it went great.  It was one of those days I felt like I was really starting to get this whole motherhood thing.

The kids went to day camps at Thanksgiving Point this summer, Zach loved his magician one.

Image

We stopped to see the Provo temple getting built, it is going to be beautiful!

Image

We threw a fun House Party the day before we flew off to Alaska.

I took the kids tot the Children’s Museum once we were back from our cruise, the younger three love it there.
