At the end of August, 2017 Ariel and I went on a “babymoon” trip to Alaska while she was pregnant with our son Jacob. We had a great time and saw glaciers, mountains, bears and the AURORA BOREALIS. Being on a cruise (as opposed to a road trip) meant we didn’t have quite the independence we were used to on other adventures, but it was still awesome in its own way. Oh and we also saw a whole BUNCH of BALD EAGLES!!

Look for detailed reviews of Denali National Park as well as Royal Carribean’s Radiance of the Seas (and more!) to come.
