26 Sleeps

We are so close to our Alaska adventure and my heart is overwhelmed with excitement!
In less than a month I will be with my family for 8 straight days and that alone makes me the happiest girl ever!
We have so many amazing adventures planned that were researched with every spare moment I had.
Clearly I have forgotten that I am a chubby, middle aged mom because we are signed up for some daring  crazy fun!
We will be zip-lining in Skagway on the newest and  largest zip line! We will be going over glacier fed waterfalls doing 11 zip lines plus 4 suspension bridges !  My palms are sweating just typing that out.

We will also be doing a private whale watching tour in Juneau and kayaking in Ketichikan

So we have the excursions planned, the reservations made for flights &  hotels.
But we were still missing one BIG thing
The official cruise dance.....
So an email went out to the family to learn this dance and be ready to "bring down the house" with this little number.

I even made it my ringtone so every time I hear it I do a little jig.
You might think we're kidding?  but No!
When Chad emailed me last week he even signed it
Love Carlton....

I love my family and we are going to leave this ship with some amazing memories!

This sounds like it will be an amazing trip and no better people to travel with than your very own family! One of the things on my "bucket list" is to take our entire family on a Disney Cruise (as soon as we quit adding members to the family!!) We are in NYC right now with our grandson's baseball team for a tournament. Kori is here (it's her son's team) and Kami came along for the "ride". We have been having such a good time. Kami is flying home right now and we will leave tomorrow. There are no better memories than times like these and you're trip we'll be like that too. I hope you all have a wonderful time!!

I am so excited for you. You will have such a good time. I am thinking you could be anywhere with your family and have the time of your life... however, Alaska will be absolutely amazing. Have such a good time. I can't wait to see the video of Chad dancing like Carlton.
