Alaska Pictures

I'm still sifting through all of the pictures from our trip to Alaska and Seattle but here are a few of my favorites and some others just for fun! The whole trip was great but by far my most favorite parts were when we saw whales :)

This is a humpback whale tail

This is the lifejacket Kyleigh would've had to use....there were no arm holes and she didn't like that very much.

A Close Up of the Mendenhall Glacier, Juneau AK - The blue color in the ice is gorgeous
Another Whale's tail

I know, I'm a dork.....this is in Ketchikan AK at the totem poles.
Kyleigh was tuckered out after a day of hiking to and around the Mendenhall Glacier

Taking the train on the White Pass Railway in the Yukon Mtns.

Us at the Mendenhall Glacier

Sunset at Sea

Space Needle (obviously ;) )

My side of the family.....thank you to my parents who set this whole trip up :)
Sawyer Glacier up the Tracy Arm Fjord

Kyleigh was more excited about the sand than the glacier or waterfall

A pod of Orcas (ie: killer whales) breaching and swimming

Playing around up on Deck

Mendenhall Glacier (again)

A Humpback Whale

Kyleigh LOVED to be in the child carrier....we were afraid she would hate it but our worry was in vain.

This was the bluest iceberg we saw on our trip, it was up the Tracy Arm Fjord close to the Sawyer Glacier

Humpback Whale blowing out the water

I know most of the people out there who read my blog are friends and family so I don't have to worry about it, but just incase I get some random stragglers I must disclose:
