Thoughtless Thursday - Alaska!!!

 It's Thursday so that means two things:
1. Tomorrow is Friday {and I am only working a half day 'cause the moms and the daddy are coming in town! yippee!!!}
2. It's Thoughtless Thursday!!! :)

Well, I have decided to share with you some pics from one of the MOST amazing vacations I have ever been on. Daddy surprised me, my bro, my mom, and my grandma with a 2 week trip to Seattle, Vancouver, and then a week long Alaskan cruise! It was the summer before my last semester of college and it was awhhhh-suuuuummmmm!!

We started out in Seattle for 3 days and got to enjoy a summer music festival....good times!
Me and my bro and the needle
music festival....sooo fun! :)
 And my fave....the Market! We shopped and lunched and had cocktails over looking the water, it was absolutely fabulous!
 and the flowers, oh my word, the flowers.....
I wanted them all......
 and they just keep going and going......
Our cruise! The Dawn Princess - and it was huge!
 Wine Tasting and my Daddy's rocking artistic camera skillz. :)
 Dinner with the Group....
 Yeah, I totally got pulled on stage to be a part of the ventriloquist show....the bird had a crush on me.....I was famous for the rest of the cruise.........and this was the first night :)
 see, told ya - The Dawn Princess!
 Ketchikan, AL - my favorite stop!
Such a cute fun little town!
And the name is fun to say too! {catch-i-can}

Our first of many glaciers {I believe this was Skagway....maybe..can't remember now}, see that little waterfall to the right.....we hiked over to it...

 then we hiked up the side of the glacier, see the small specs of people....that's daddy and the bro
 Next up Juneau and a helicopter ride to a glacier!
 I love love love love love love love love love love love love love love helicopters! I swore I would get my license after this tour.....still gonna do it!
 you just float around....
 then we stop here and get out....on a flippin' glacier!!!

Formal night with Daddy!

 I got to pour the cham-pag-ne fountain!

Then we ended in Anchorage, stayed for a few days and then started the long hike home! :) It was with out a doubt of the coolest/most amazing/lucky things I have done! My Daddy rocks!!
And those are just a few of hundreds upon hundreds of pictures we have between me and my daddy {I get it from him}, hope you enjoyed! :)
