Of course, they make it fit when Mom and Dad provide an all-inclusive party for their first cruise! It will be special in many ways. We leave Seattle June 28, and return July 5. We plan to make reservations for dinner atop the Space Needle the night before we board.

The Hills are Alive

Roads Traveled with Linda L Osmundson
