FC: Our Alaskan Family Adventure | Summer 2011
1: Dear Mom and Dad... | You have always told us you can choose your friends, but you are stuck with your family. I can't think of anyone I would rather be stuck with. Thank you for giving our family a trip of a life time. Traveling to Alaska with you was an adventure that left me more complete. I can't begin to express how spending seven days with six of the most important people in my life has affected me. Thank you for a most memorable trip. I love you. Maryl | I want to give Ahma and Papa a kiss. I liked playing on the cruise boat. We played golf and went down the slippery slide. I liked going on the train. Thank you for taking me to Alaska. Love, Mason | Going to Alaska was something I have wanted to do for a long time. Every sight was more spectacular than the last. It's just amazing what is out there in this great big world we live in. We had a great time sharing the adventure with you. Thank you for giving Mason something special to talk about over and over again. Now, why don't we go to the Garden Café for a frozen yogurt and cobbler. If you're lucky, I'll show you the hottest deals on Ammolite jewelry. Love you guys, Josh | Spending 7 days with all the people I love in life was as spiritual as the scenic views in Alaska. The entire trip was life altering from coming within feet of granite mountains and waterfalls, encountering bears, and even running from one end of the boat to the other in search of frozen yogurt. You gave our family so much more than a vacation and for that I will forever be grateful for the parents you are. But I'm left wondering one thing, when are we doing this again?> Love you, Bob | Keith & Shelby, I feel so fortunate the two of you have welcomed me into your family and included me on this Alaskan vacation. I had the time of my life. The sights and experiences were amazing but more importantly you made it possible for all of us to spend quality time together. To share this amazing experience with such amazing people is something I will always cherish. From bear chasing to freezing slide rides and flights in the De Havilland Beaver to searching the ship for that one working soft serve machine and sharing great laughs in the cabin with the human weed whacker. This trip had it all. I love you both and can't wait for the next trip. Love, William
