My grandma and grandpa Call took Morgan and I to Alaska.We stayed at Jen and Jimmy's house.
On Sunday after church we went to the park and played,then we went for a walk.Morgan and I got to take turns holding Jen's dog,Koda's leash.This is a stump with bottle caps all over it.
Later that day Jen wanted to take us to The Animal Conservation Center by her house.There were all sorts of animals there.The moose were walking around.
This bear is sitting in the water eating a fish.I guess the fish was really tasty because he was in their for a long time.
I'm pretty sure these are Musk Ox,but I'm not sure.They were shedding their winter coats and looked kind of odd.
I think this eagle's wings got burned in a wild fire and can't fly anymore.He was one of my favorite things.
The owls were my favorite animal at the conservation.This one had both of it's eyes closed so we were making some noise so it would open his eyes.
On Monday we went to the Sea Life Center in Seward.The crab put on a show for us.
This is a picture of me taking a picture of the camera by the touching pools.
In the touching pools there were Sea Stars,and sea urchins to touch.Even grandma touched some sea stars.
The sea stars were very neat to touch.They felt so weird.
My favorite thing at the Sea Life Center was the puffins.This one is swimming underwater really fast.
This one was sitting on the wall right by me.He looked so fluffy and I wanted to touch him but he probably would not have liked that.
This was the grump head fish.He looked like he was frowning.
Jellyfish.When I touched the glass of the jellyfish tank I felt a little electric shock.
This is what I call the tin can cabin.It was teeny.
Here is Morgan and me by the bear at Aleyaska Resort.Yes we are wearing rain ponchos,it was rainy all that day.
We tried on hats in the sport store.
Here's Jimmy and Morgan on the raft.I have no idea why Morgan is making that face,I think he was chewing his snickers bar.
On Thursday we all rode the tram up to the top of the mountain to where Jen and Jimmy got married.
There was still a lot of snow at the top and it was pretty blinding.
These are the same hand puppets Jen sent us for Christmas a couple years ago.
The other tram as it passed us coming down.
On Friday our last day we went to Whittier.This is inside the tunnel to get to Whittier.
The adults wanted to do a glacier cruise.So we went on a five hour glacier cruise.It was lots of fun.
Here's me in front of the HUGE glacier.
There was a ranger on board the ship and at the beginning of the tour he asked all the kids if they would like to be Junior Rangers.Morgan and I said yes so we got a booklet to work on through the entire cruise.At the end of the tour there was a little ceremony where the ranger gave all of the Junior Rangers their badges.
When we got back to Jen's house I wanted to take some pictures of Koda before we left. These are my best shots of him.
Morgan and I had so much fun in Alaska.I can't wait to go back some day.
