Here are lots of pictures of us in Alaska.

clockwise from top left: all of the P* grandkids (minus the 2 babies) in front of the Anchorage Temple, boarding the ship on a very cold and windy day, in the Wheelhouse bar before dominating daily trivia (we have the luggage tags to prove it), in front of a little totem pole in Skagway

a pretty view from the ship (there were lots of those), Mabel and Oliver holding hands in front of the Mendenhall Glacier, Mabel loving a sled dog puppy in Juneau

me, Mike, and a thrilled Stella in front of a big glacier, some whales, a pretty view, and panning for gold in Juneau

yet another pretty view, some silly kids in front of a crazy tree in the rainforest, Stella at sunset on the Promenade deck, Oliver, and Mabel both in the very green rainforest in Ketchikan

If you ever get the chance to go to Alaska, take it.
It's pretty much amazing.
We had the time of our lives.

Thank you mom and dad!
