Our last day of the cruise was at sea, so we played on the boat.
We couldn't take Jonah in the water (and were afraid to take him to childcare because if he had another bad diaper we'd be quarantined another 24 hours), but they splashed a little and loved it.
We did do some mini golfing. Amazing backdrop!
John's purple ball is mid hop.
Giving his ball a little love tap.
We looked at the professional pictures taken of us during the week and Jonah was so excited to find "Bampa!" He did look a lot like Alan.
Jonah brought a dessert for Scott.
Our sweet tablemate couple from Pennsylvania. Nick and his wife . . . we couldn't remember her name and it was too awkward to ask when they remembered all of ours, so we refer to her as Pam.
Scott's favorite part of the cruise (and the part he talks about when we ask what he liked best) was running around the helicopter pad. We took lots of walks around the outside of the boat to enjoy the scenery and let the kids loose.
Shuffleboard. It was tricky with our helpers, but we managed to get a few games in.
As we left the boat the next morning, we saw all of the fruit being loaded. I'm guessing about 10% of it was needed just for Jonah.
Someone in the Vancouver office helped us to the front of the line because we had little kids with us. They really don't see a lot of children come through and it had some perks.
We walked along the seawall and saw seaplanes taking off.
It was a much warmer day than we anticipated and the walk to Stanley Park was a lot longer, but we made it and it was beautiful.
The boys found sticks and rocks to throw in water. And yes, Jonah's wearing the same clothes (pajamas) as the day before because he went through outfits a lot faster than I'd planned since he was sick so long.
We went to a park and rested while the boys played.
After walking several hundred feet past this dragon, Scott had a meltdown about not taking a picture with it, so we went back and took one. He loves the picture and asks to see it sometimes.
We read about totem poles, lighthouses and beaches in the park and went to check them out.
This is the lighthouse. It's so cute, but not at all what I was expecting!
By the time we got to the totem poles, Jonah was asleep and Scott wanted to be carried so he could sleep.
We walked into town and had a delicious pizza, then headed to the airport. The "choo choo" we took there was probably their favorite part.
We arrived at the airport way earlier than planned and were glad because the security there had one of the least efficient systems and rudest employees. At our gate they had a big playground for kids and Disney character collections on display.
Jonah said, "Mickey! One, two, three, five, eight, nine, ten Mickeys!"
Our flight home was delayed because of fog (the risk of SFO), but we had some surprisingly inexpensive and tasty dinner at the airport. Alan picked us up and we arrived home after a long day by boat, feet, train, airplane and car. We loved seeing Alaska, but are ready to stick to local vacations for a little while.
