Shark Bait

Remember when Frank bought me the year pass to Point Defiance Zoo and Northwest Trek...well I decided that I was gonna make use of that membership and have it pay for itself many times over!  So I decided I would take my nieces and nephews...just Auntie time...and yes I did have to tell a Sister in law this was just Auntie time but that another time I would take her.
 
So I decided to take my nephews to Point Defiance Zoo today and what a day we had!  We were there all day!  We didn't get home until 5pm or so?  Man we walked all over and saw everything and squished pennies and made funny faces at animals (OK on that one we made not have had to work hard on that one)...cried some (seriously 6 boys is a bit much sometimes!) and laughed a lot!
 
This Zoo has an aquarium in it and we walked around and took our picture here
 
 
 Please Auntie...can we do a funny face one?  I'm such a sucker!  If those kids haven't figured out all they have to do is ask for the moon and that I would get it for them...well I'm in trouble when they do!  I love Ian's face though! 
 You know when you are always the one behind the camera there are rarely any of you with anyone...so I try to make a point of getting a picture taken as much as I can...so that other people can remember and look back on those memories and remember me if they need to...you know?  Boys...boys and MORE boys!!!
 Aren't they a handsome bunch??
 And this shot is for Auntie Sharon...she claims it's her mountain but she really must share it with the rest of us...but I was really just tickled that I got a shot of one of those really neat clouds that happen a lot around that mountain.  There is a really spectacular name for those kinds of clouds...I'll be darned if I can remember what is now! 
 
All in all I had a wonderful day and outside of being a wife first and a mother second...running behind closely is being an Auntie!  I tell those kids all the time that I love them...I'm not sure I ever heard, save one or two aunts/uncles say it,  those 3 words from them "I love you" my whole growing up years...I also am pretty sure my kids are not told that??? I don't know I've never heard my children's Aunts and Uncles say that they love them...I'll have to start listening better and/or asking my kids if they are told that... 
 
I wonder.....
