Wordful Wednesday

I've decided to start my day with a blog prompt from Seven Clown Circus.

Lovely!

I chose this photo to write about because it has been my desktop background for the past few weeks.

These are three of my nine (yes, nine) kiddos. I was their nanny for five years (yes, five). My years with them are SUCH a huge part of my life and I ache for their sweaty, sticky hugs and kisses every. single. day. I'm thinking of heading up to Flagstaff this weekend for some baby love. I need my love batteries re-charged! When I started working for this family there were three kids. Samantha, Anna Marie and Nick. Then came Tom, then the twins Maggie and Grace. This summer, the TRIPLETS were born! Olivia, Kate and Nora. I started a blog for them and cannot wait to snap more photos this weekend! Click HERE to see the blog.

Anyway, we took this photo (Nick, me, Grace, Maggie) at the Out of Africa park in Camp Verde, AZ. If you haven't been I HIGHLY recommend it! It's a little primitive, no characters walking around or anything, but it is VERY fun. We fed giraffes, pet huge snakes, watch lions, tigers and tons of other animals! This is one of my favorite photos from the trip. It was over 100 degrees, we were SO hot, sweaty, sticky, stinky and happy! I think I spent $50 on bottled water that day. We were so thirsty and the kids kept pouring the water on their heads. Who could blame them?

More photos of the bebes in the post below. Just for fun. :)

Soooo sweet!

I was a nanny for over 10 years, and my last family had 4 kids and then when I had my son taylor, I brought him along too.

I love them like they are my own kids, and I hope one day, even though I don't nanny for them anymore, that I will be invited to their weddings!
