See Alaska...And A Winner!

A big "thanks" to everyone who joined in the guessing game!
We were on a Disney cruise to Alaska; on the way, we visited Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchikan.  Unfortunately, I didn't see the northern lights, but we did enjoy the white nights. 

Hurray, Liliris! 
(Oops, I originally misstated the winner.
Barbara, something is coming to you, too!)
You have won a cuddly bear finger puppet,
a set of Mickey Mouse dice, an ABC Alaska book,

(Not babyish, I promise!)
a Disney pirate kerchief, and several wildlife postcards.
I will be emailing you to get your address!
My husband tries to keep me warm!
Considering the 108 degree temps at home,
we were quite happy to be cold!
The Cousin Crew
This cruise vacation was my sister-in-law's gift to all of us.
The youngest girls are her little princesses.
The smiling guy is my youngest son;
he is standing next to my niece and my daughter (in pink).
This is my favorite picture.
As we moved north through the Inside Passage,
the water became greener and the clouds hung like smoke.
Seal pups were everywhere as we drew close to the glacier.
The Glacier At Tracey Arm
View from the helicopter, on our way to a glacier near Skagway.
My sweet SIL and I managed to stay upright
while picking our way across the ice.
This is an opening in the glacier.  The color is indescribable!
Do you see the running water?
Our guide dropped a 20 lb. rock down this hole and it took over 10 seconds to reach the bottom.  Yikes!
The magic of Disney sprinkled pixie dust over our entire trip.
My niece was excited to meet Snow White.
When I told Cinderella that she would always be my favorite,
she practically sang, "Oh, we must hug!"
I can't wait to take another Disney cruise!

Does anyone want to go to the Mediteranean?!

Can we use it as an excuse to create curriculum 
about the ancient world?

  7. Love the pics. I think I've talked my husband into taking me and 3 grandkids on an Alaskan cruise next summer. His only requirement is that he has a day or two to halibut fish.
