An amazing woman! Please read and stop by my moms blog!!!!

My mom is truely an amazing woman! She lost her best friend last year to cancer, right now two of her close friends are battling cancer. One of her friends is in chemo therapy and will be losing her hair shortly, my mom is going to shave her head as well for her friend. When she told me this I was thinking if I would be brave enough to do something like that, or would any of my friends do that for me. I'm happy that her friends have someone like her in their life. She truly is a beauiful, thoughtful person. I am proud to have her as my mom. I would love it if you could stop by her blog and tell her what a great thing it is that she is doing. thanks.

Alaska Day 2

Ok so I know there was a bit of a delay in between Day 1 and Day 2, but I have been really busy. I started back to work and have been spending more time outside.

We woke up early the next morning and headed up for some breakfast in the buffet. The food was pretty good, although having cinnamon buns and bacon every morning is not so good for the figure. There was a seminar in the morning about shopping once we docked, so we figured we would go to it. BIG MISTAKE!!! After listening to "Flash Gordon" describe every single jewlery store in all the ports we would be going to we felt like sleeping or throwing things at him!!! It felt like a time share presentation! all we really wanted was the VIP card for the shopping, turns out we didn't even need to go to presentaion we could have picked up the VIP cards after the show at the reception desk!!!
Later in the after noon we went for drinks in the Martini bar and played "Name that Broadway tune" Afterwards we had dinner in one of the 2 formal resturants, great food!
After dinner we wandered to the front of the ship and were surprised to see that no one else was there!!

We were disapointed not to be able to watch the Canucks game, apparently us Canadians care more about Hockey then our neighbors to the south!! Only baseball!!! I caught the score in the casino on the sports channel! And that was day 2. Tomorrow we arrive in Ketchinken.

I have more pics posted on my other blog Photography by Melanie
