Point Defiance

We spent Saturday exploring Tacoma. It really is a neat city. There is a huge park which I think may actually be a national forest called Point Defiance. There are walking, hiking, and biking trails, ponds, lakes, a beach, and the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium. We spent the majority of the day at the Zoo and Aquarium. It was a blast!



We went with Jorge and his family - he and Spence work together.



This picture is for Marti and Shawn... wouldn't you say it is quite "national geographic-esque!??"




Not bad pictures of the Tiger, wouldn't you say!



Lance loved looking at the Sharks at the aquarium. They even had a seahorse exhibit!



What the shark mouth? I certainly don't want to run into any of these bad boys?

Love the pictures. Why is it called Point Defiance? I read the scariest shark attack store in the Reader's Digest today... so I think you standing in the shark's mouth is pretty brave. Keep posting these amazing pics!

Ok, your weekend looked fun too. Mostly I just said it like that so people would wonder what it was I did last weekend that was so great. And really it was just a BBQ and night up at the cabin, but it was totally relaxing... I loved it.

Katie,

I found your blog on the Olympus High site, and I hope you don't think I am a weirdo for writting on here, but my husband said you and he were friends in HS and so I thought I better say hello to an old friend of his. Your little boy is adorable, I am sure you are excited to have that 1 year birthday party soon!!

did you jump any fences to get the shots? risk any limbs? national geographic wants people who are willing to risk everything for the sake of the images.

Very fun!!! I love finding new spots out and exploring. I even loved doing that in SLC after living there 24 years.

You'll always have fun adventures!
