As promised, I am back to my blog after a brief two-week hiatus, during which I traveled via Disney cruise ship to Alaska with my family.
|My sister's family, my family, my father & his wife, ready to board the Disney Wonder|
|The Adventures Away celebration as the ship pulled away from Seattle. Just a few of our closest friends! :-)|
|My husband and kids huddle with me on my Dad's stateroom veranda to watch the floating ice in Tracy Arm, Alaska.|
|Bayla and Katy meet Mickey Mouse during the Character Breakfast on our first morning aboard the Wonder.|
|Bayla practices dabbing her mouth like a princess.|
We drank plenty of coffee and hot chocolate to keep warm on the windy decks, and I remained permanently ensconced in a grey sweater and red scarf...not my usual summertime gear!
|Katy and I cuddle to protect ourselves from the cold of Alaska and the wind of the moving cruise ship.|
|My girls are in blue on either side of the boy in white.|
The highlight of the trip for the girls, I think, was the mid-ship glass elevator. We used it to get where we were going as often as we could in order to humor them, and even rode up and down aimlessly a few times so they could enjoy the view.
|Giving my girls time with their grandparents was one of the highlights of the trip for me.|
We had four port excursions over the week: Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchikan in Alaska, and Victoria in British Columbia, Canada. I will share some photos from these side trips in a future post. So much to share from our Alaskan adventure!
I am happy to be back to blogging, and to visiting my favorite blogs. Taking a couple of weeks off, though, offers some healthy perspective, and takes some of the self-imposed pressure off that so easily plagues us in the world of blogging.
Thanks for coming back and finding me again!
