Hanging out with the nieces...

One of the many things that have distracted me from posting lately:

A visit from my nieces, my Dad, my sister and her honey.


We played tourist for a few days. The older girls have been here before, but this was Emma's first trip North.

We checked out the Yukon Suspension Bridge

Spent an afternoon in Skagway, where we saw some seals and a few salmon. And a seal eating a salmon, which amused five year old Emma to no end!

We went to the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, which was very cool. This Stone Sheep was just taking a break near his water.

Emma indulged in some snowman poop, which the rest of the world calls marshmellows! Could you resist that little face!? She decided that Auntie T isn't so bad after all during this visit and was a most cooperative little model!

The dogs were in heaven with so many extra hands to pet them! Naomi was a particular favorite of all the dogs!

Emma believes you should pet a dog "so he can feel it". Her doggy massages were throughly enjoyed! The cats enjoyed her willingness to share her food right off her plate--her mother was not so impressed with that!

Hopefully, it won't be another six years before they make the trek north!

What a darling trio of girls! You are so lucky to get a visit and to have such a special place to take them for entertainment. Booker loves the giant bear statue. He thinks he still has it in him to tree a bear ... let him have his fantasies ...

How exciting for everyone!!! It looks like you had a great time!

Umm, btw, that bridge had my mom saying "OMD, no freakin' WAY!" She is VERY afraid of those sort of bridges and would NEVER step foot on it!

Glad the pups had such a great time with the kids! I like kids too! They give great tummy rubs!!

WOW! CUTE Kids! Must be in the Family genes!

The Dawg & Kats wil probably sign a petition to send to your Sis requesting a return of the Nieces next summer.

They sould hve some great Auntie T Tails to tell their friends back home.

Now WHERE's the whole-family portrait?
