Not quite setting up the slide projector...

But close. I loved our trip to Seattle. I love my new nephew and am very proud of my younger brother and his wife. I just can't stop talking about this trip (in case you couldn't tell) so here are some more photos, in no particular order.

One of my boys' teachers made him a journal for his trip. She also made one for his brother even though he is in another class.

We rode a ferry to Bainbridge Island.

A quote on the wall of the bakery where we had lunch on the island.

Underneath the park with the terrific view was an equally terrific playground.

Wicked cool Uncle (aka my younger brother) brought the boys and me to the University of Washington campus to show us where he teaches and studies. He is working on his PhD. That makes him not only wicked cool but also wicked smart (or "wicked smaht" as we say here).

Thanks for indulging me. To show my gratitude the above is a rare photo of me. Not sure how long I'll keep it up but now you know how I look. But more importantly, isn't that nephew cute? Definitely cuter than a hippo.

Of course, there were be weeks worth of photos at the photoblog site I share with Jenn in Holland, Looking Into. You may have missed a few already. Go see.

Adorable nephew indeed! And it sounds like such a perfect trip, despite your sleep deprivation. Thanks so much for sharing all your joy in your trip and especially, your nephew!

Being an Aunt is the best, the absolute best. In some ways it's better then being a parent b/c in the end, you are not responsible.

Adorable baby.

I've always wanted to go to Seattle.

AH! I want to munch on that nephew. What a very beautiful boy! Yummy, yummy, yummy.
And you by beauty--you too. Yummy, yummy, yummy!

Great pics! Sounds like it was a fun trip.

BTW, congratulations on making it over halfway without missing a beat in the NaBlowPornoShow (or whatever!). I know with all you have on your plate it has not been easy, but you have been a real trooper and I applaud your commitment! Hang in there and I wish you lots of lovely things to blog about the rest of the month!

And sending you early "Happy Thanksgiving" wishes and be sure and spare a thought for us poor ex-pats who will not be indulging!
