Anyway before Blogger had it's little nervous breakdown last week (1), we were talking about what the kids enjoyed most about Alaska.
On the cruise, they made this dessert called the love boat dream and it was so yummy. I had it every night.
The love boat dream was a heart shaped brownie covered with chocolate mousse, served with raspberry coulis and a mint leaf which Noa generously shared. The mint leaf, I mean. She was more than happy to let you have her mint leaf.
One night I ordered my own love boat dream just to see what all the fuss was about and it tasted like a sponge. But my kids aren't known for their sensitive palate. On our last cruise Jake ordered jello every night.
Noa also enjoyed the flight-seeing. In fact she helped move the plane.
I can't get this child to put away her socks and all of a sudden she's willing to help move the plane.
Noa decided she wants to fly a little plane around Alaska when she grows up and has generously offered me a $5 discount. (Good only in the off season.) (2)
Ask Jake about Super Mario Galaxy and you'll get eleven straight hours of commentary, but this is all he'll say about Alaska:
I liked the flightseeing and I liked camp.Flightseeing we covered. Camp was a large room filled with other 10 year old boys who played xbox.
In summary my kids enjoyed Alaska but also would have apparently enjoyed equally a trip to a strip mall that had a Best Buy and a mediocre bakery. But then we wouldn't have seen stuff like this.
And definitely not this:
Even ShallowGal isn't going to ruin that picture with a flippant caption.
Bottom line: Alaska. Worth traveling 30 hours with three kids. (3)
1) Blogger is possibly even more unstable than I am. All this WARNING ! UNABLE TO CONTACT BLOGGER ! Very stressful.
2) I should probably get it in writing.
3) For real. We left Monday at 8 am and got home 2pm Tuesday.
