WARNING! Long with alot of pictures!
Colton and I had the opportunity to go on an Alaskan cruise with my dad's family at the end of July. It was so much fun! I was nervous to fly with a ten month old but of course Colton did wonderfully! He slept for half the flight then ate and played the rest of the flight.
Right before we took off
We flew in with my grandparents and met everyone else on the ship. Our whole family got to go which is amazing! It's not often you can get everyone together for a week at the same time. We were excited to see Uncle Trevor (who now lives in California), Aunt Jenny and Uncle Rick and their kids Brandon and Michelle.

We had two days at sea and four stops at ports all of which were gorgeous and fun! We got to see Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, and Victoria B.C. (which I thought was the most gorgeous of all!). Colton and I mostly walked around the towns and did some shopping at all the ports except for in Victoria where we got to see the Beauchart Gardens (I have no idea if that is spelled right). They were so pretty and so amazing to look at.
I honestly could not have asked for a better trip or better behaving child. He was AMAZING the whole time and was quite the charmer and performer with everyone he met. I thank God everyday for the opportunity to have him in my life and to learn and grow with him.
I took over 300 pictures during our week of fun but I will just share a few...

  1. SUCH a fun trip. We must do that again.
    I wonder what they're planning for their 11th anniversary...

  2. I need to belong in your family. This trip looks uh-mazing. So jealous.
