Good evening, it is Thursday.
Today Maren had a meeting in Seattle, so the rest of us decided to drive her up there, then play tourist for a while.
We started out in the Seattle Public Library. I showed the kids just who is the boss at checkers! From here we walked down to the Seattle Waterfront and ate lunch at Ivar's. Always a great lunch!
Ye Olde Curiosity Shop. We looked at mummies and other oddities. I sure hope Lillie is not wishing to be BIG!
The new Ferris Wheel! Preston and Lillie went on this amazing ride, while Hansen and I just watched.
This was the way Hansen watched his sibs ride the Ferris Wheel...sitting on a yellow lawn chair and listening to some tunes.
Lillie took this picture of Hansen and I on the deck below. We are the yellow chairs on the right.
and this picture were taken at the exact same time. Lillie and Preston had a great time on this ride. And they took lots of goofy pictures. Good for them!
Preston took this cool pic of the Seattle Waterfront. Wow.
Maren met up with us after her meeting and lunch were over. We met up just after the ferris wheel. We all made it it through the throngs of tourists at the Pike Place Market. Every year we try to go to the Pike Place Market, and for some reason years ago (probably just because I'm cheap) I purchased each kid a bead turtle, or bead dragon, or bead something. Lillie kept the tradition alive with her bead snake. Then it was shopping at Westlake and a stop at Starbucks!
Yesterday Preston and I stopped by Big Lots yesterday to pick up a snack or two. We decided to buy each person in our family a beverage that they would love. Can you guess whose drink is whose?
