Called to Serve

We have loved traveling and being with family for the past two years but we felt the call to serve another mission so here we are in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania for the next year.

Yes - We are still alive!!

It is catch up time once again. I will start with our Alaskan Cruise in June.
As soon as school was out, we joined 12 friends and boarded the Amtrac train here in Fresno and headed for San Francisco.

What a way to travel. We played games the whole way and before we knew it our ride was over.

The train went as far as Emmeryville where we took a bus into the City. The bus dropped us off in front of the Cruise Terminal at the pier and we were joined by 4 more friends bringing our group total to 18.

We had a beautiful view of San Francisco as we headed out to sea.

We had a great time with friends, good food and fantastic scenery. We stopped in Ketchican, Juneau, Icy Strait, went up Tracy Arm and spent Father's day in Victoria.

This is Cutie Claire. She was new to the group and added so much to our trip.

Wayne did an all day hike to the Mendenhall Glacier and had a great experience.

Wayne and I had been to Ketchican and Juneau before but we did different things this time and we really had a good time.

We went to a Lumberjack show,

saw totem poles and just enjoyed the scenery.

Victoria was the last stop. It was Father's Day and the bus tour company had a deal going because it was Father's Day and so Wayne got to go free and we had a very interesting and enjoyable bus tour of the city. It is too bad we were there for such a short time and it was a Sunday. This is definitely a city worth visiting again.
