Mark and I have been married for 21 years today!  It is hard to believe.  We decided that time flies when you are having fun.  The past 21 years have brought so many wonderful blessings our way.  Life it not ALWAYS easy but when you get to do it with someone you enjoy being with, someone who listens to you, someone who makes you laugh, someone who is kind and thoughtful, and who is your best friend it make the ride through life so much easier!!!  Heres to 21 more baby!!!!

To celebrate we spent the day in St. George.
We went to the temple and did sealings, ate at
Texas Roadhouse, and did and little shopping.

50 years have come and gone

What a couple... And I have been blessed to call them mom and dad for the past 21 years.  They are amazing people.  So glad that my children call them Grandma and Grandpa.  They have been married for 50 years now.  They are an example of love and goodness to all of our family.

Trip of a Lifetime Continued...

We saw lots of totem poles.
Had to get a picture with the "Falcon"
for Dave and Mark from the Falcon Faculty!

The sunset off the ship.
The sunset in the middle of the ocean is soooo beautiful.

Going thru the Tracey Arm Fiyord.
I know HORRIBLE picture.  It was 6:00am.
But it was sure worth getting out of bed for.

The Mendenhall Glacier.

We went whale watching in Juneau and saw a mother whale swimming with her calf and a "calf escort".  Our guide told us the "calf escort" is a male who swims with the mother and baby to help protect them.  The picture below is of the whale blowing water out of it's spout.  That is how you can first spot them.   You see the spray coming out of the water.  It was an amazing experience. 

In Skagway.  That is our ship in the background. 

We also saw several bald eagles.

Saying goodbye to Seattle. 

Monday night.  Our first formal night after a day at sea. 

 We woke up on Tuesday to this on our door.

We found these funny hats.  Didn't buy them but they were fun to try on.  :)

 Look who Julie and I found in Alaska!!  And she was nice enough to allow us to take a picture with us. 
Welcome to Ketchikan, Alaska.  Me, Julie and Dave.

We went to a "Lumberjack Show"  in Ketchikan.
