My first trip to Alaska was last February when Kasey had Ethan. Although I was happy to be here with Kasey and family, Alaska was freezing, 20 below, and covered with snow and I was unimpressed. I have also NEVER wanted to go on an Alaska cruise.
After my second trip, I would definitely like to go on a cruise here someday and have seen some remarkable sights and am definitely impressed with the majesty of Alaska. I have also thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Henry family. We have been up close and personal with the face of a magnificent glacier, the Portage glacier, seen numerous wildlife close up in a wildlife conservatory, watched a bear pulling fish out of a creek, seen tons of salmon (some spawning), eaten great seafood, visited a gold mine, picked wild blueberries, and viewed beautiful mountains and rivers. It is truly a majestic state.
Ethan is a bundle of cuteness and the happiest baby ever. If he happens to catch your eye he grins and wiggles all over. I am entranced with him.
Sienna is such a love bug. I have recieved hundreds of kisses from her, usually on the cheek. She loves to sit on my lap and sleep in our room. She also has a mind of her own and cracks me up all the time!
Alexa is a crack up. She is my drama momma. We were picking blueberries and had to walk up a mountain. She was seriously dying all the way up there but had a great time. She loves to sleep in our room every night too.
Kaden is growing up to be such a good, smart boy. I can't believe how he can read and he will help out so willingly with anything I ask of him. Such a cute boy.
It has been so much fun hanging out with Kasey. She has made us great food, wonderful cobbler and been a great tour guide. Matt had to work a lot but was so great about showing us a good time too. They took us to the Haute Quarter for a great meal. It's been a great trip and I hate leaving tomorrow but we'll be back in December for Kaden's baptism and then Lee and I are driving from Northern California to here next summer before they leave. Can't wait to plan what other sites besides Denali that we want to visit.
