Day 5: Juneau

Welcome to Juneau!



Mason really wanted to go on a helicopter ride but with the weather all flights were canceled so we took that as our que to have more of a laid back day and explore the city.
There was NO agenda.

We headed to town and decided what sounded fun as we went!

First thing we decided to do: Mt. Roberts Tramway



 Up we went!
High into the sky!
 It was breath taking.
AND WET!



 At the top we enjoyed a warm cup of coffee and explored some trails.

We also met a rescued Eagle who had been shot and left to die. 
The shelter saved him and has been caring for him ever since due to the fact that he would not be able to survive in the wild.


Down we go. 
I think this is when Kendall realized how high we are.
The look on her face... PRICELESS!



On the way down we met a young woman from Washington who is in the Coast Guard. Guess it was our lucky day because the ship was giving tours... How could we pass that up. 
After all it was another BIG boat!!!




 Greg and I haven't been on a cruise in about 10 years.... The last one was everything but desirable. 
Probably why we haven't cruised since. 
The one thing that I wasn't expecting... ALL THE SHOPPING. 
It was mind blowing. 
Thankfully as we walked the streets lined with stores (mostly selling jewelry) there was a few things the kids LOVED. So we snapped a few photos.  



ALL in ALL. Juneau was nice, wet and we were able to get back to the boat in a timely manner with some new Lego's in tow!

Thanks for checking in!
More photos and adventures still to come!

Loaded Diaper?!?!?

Today's post title comes to you from the one and only Greg Garka... Thanks for the idea babe!

As far as Mason is concernced today was another good day for our little man!
We made our goal and got up and went on a total of three walks. The last walk of the night he spotted the “playroom” and was interested so we stopped and visited with our neighbors while he played. It was the highlight of the day.

His appetite decreased today but that is to be expected since he hadn’t yet had a bowel movement (in 6 days)– however about 60 minutes ago things changed in that department and I am happy to report his bowels are working and back in action…


During his echo he was again a crowd pleaser and was on his best behavior. The technician said that he was the best 3 year old she has done. It is so funny; he gets upset when something is about to happen and he doesn’t understand what. He tells us he is scared and then after we explain to him what they are going to do and that it won’t hurt – he is…
