Olivia very much wanted to touch the cold water, but she was little scared. So Joe carried her out there and dipped her hand in.
In the afternoon in Skagway, we found a little playground, which, of course, was the highlight of Olivia's day. Mountains? Scenic vistas? Gold? Heck, no! Give her a sandbox and some swings and she's happy. She didn't even notice the scenic backdrop to her playground!
Next up was a cruise through Glacier Bay National Park, which was amazing to see even if Olivia didn't fully appreciate it. It was weird to see ice in the water, as if someone dumped a bunch of giant-sized ice cubes in to keep it cool.
Ketchikan was our last Alaska stop. Olivia liked the totem poles.
I have about a frillion more photos to share and stories of a fun meeting in Seattle, but that will have to wait for another day. Laundry beckons!
Oh, and I almost forgot!! I came home last night to an unexpected surprise...
Rachel! I opened the smallest blue one and almost cried at the sweetness of that tiny gift!! And I can't even post a picture of that...yet. But as soon as I can, I will so that you will all know just how awesome Rachel is!!
