Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a time to remember. A time to remember those who came before us and paved the way for the life we live today. Ever since I can remember, Grandma and Grandpa has instilled the tradition of going around to the graves of our loved ones. What a wonderful tradition. I think I learn something new every year from the stories Grandma and Mom tell, and of course the ones Grandpa used to tell when he was here with us. Happy Memorial Day!!!

Alaskan Cruise

We are back...actually we got back last Friday, but I haven't had any time since then to post on my blog. Alaska was AMAZING!!! What a beautiful place! We cruised to Ketchikan, Juneau, Hubbard Glacier, and through the Inside Passage, then to Victoria British Columbia Canada before heading back to Seattle. The Hubbard Glacier was incredible! We were plowing right through all the ice, in between ice bergs, and watched a family of seals. On Juneau, we loaded Grandma on a little float plane (sea plane) and flew over five glaciers and landed at an old hunting lodge called the Taku Glacier Lodge where we were treated to a fresh Salmon dinner and just enjoyed the beauty of real Alaska. The whole experience was so awesome and Grandma did really well. Here are some pictures of our Alaskan journey.
