Tomorrow my parents and I board the ms Amsterdam for the cruise to Alaska. I'm packed and ready. My parents flew in Yesterday afternoon and we spent the afternoon dining at B.J.'s where Mortimer works and then showing them around Tacoma. It's been quite a few years since they have been here and the place has changed quite a bit. Today we went to breakfast then came back to teh house and I did some laundry and finished up my packing. We went to dinner at Anthony's at Pt. Defiance adn now were are laying low for a bit. My mother and I are going up to Seattle to see The Marriage of Figaro while Mortimer stays here to entertain my father. My father is not quite up to sitting over three hours in a theater.
I took them by the lab this morning to meet the gang and we drove down to D Street to check out progress on the Urban Waters building. It's still a hole in the ground, but there was activity.
I found this link to one of the shore excurions I'm doing. I think its the one I'm looking forward to the most. It's a rainforest canopy and zipline trip and should be hella fun. Also going on a helicopter trip to Mendenhall Glacier.
Not sure how much blogging I'll be able to do. I'm sure I'll have cell service at some point, so I will at least be able to call in updates. I will ahve to keep a Journal so everything is fresh in my mind when I come back. I'm taking four cameras, so there should be plenty of photo coverage.
Time to start getting ready for the opera. Then its home and bed and then VACATION!!!
