Posers (See the Pac. Market sign in the distance?)
This photo cracks me up. Mr. Cool & little bro diving in to make bunny ears.
From the Needle we found this maze for the boys to run.
And we walked around a corner and found this....at about 7 p. I was not sure about letting the boys go in so late but we did and they had a blast.
That would be a teeny Eli.
Hey! A photo of me!! How do you like that?
Never fear, I have more photos to come....

If you asked me about our weekend ventures the first thing I'd tell you is that I'm not a city girl. That being said, we had some wonderful adventures. I only took photos of the good parts, and I'd love to share. :)
Ralph at the Sound.
We haven't seen the ocean for a whole year!
From the Wharf....the Space Needle was the favorite thing for the boys.
Good food, no this meal was GREAT. Of course we had just walked about 4 miles, and I was starved. The best chicken-pesto-tomato sandwich EVER.
Then we found the monorail. The boys were thrilled to ride, we were thrilled not to walk more!
From the Space Needle
Can you find all three boys?
I brought this homely little creature home with us.
Pacific Science Center...mirrors that made us laugh a long time.
The Butterfly Room.
Excuse me...The Butterfly/ Exotic Flower Room
The Cocoon Room, I got to watch a monarch emerge!
The boys LOVED this set and begged to go back again and again.
The Aquarium, tide pools without the ocean. More pics to come. :)

Sunday morning I woke up s.i.c.k. Lucky for me, it only stayed for a day. But, when I finally scraped myself out of bed, this is the sweet note that was waiting for me, from my sweet husband.
Nate has been happily hammering for most of the week. The chair, above, is complete now, with about 200 nails in it. I don't know if you want to sit in this chair, it's a little, um, prickly. But, my Nate is happy with a hammer in hand and it seems like a natural project for a boy, don't you think. Send your scrap wood our way.
2. Add a coat, or 2 for yellow. What is that?
3. After the base cures a day or two, measure twice & tape the walls to border the stripe.
4. Paint along the inside stripe with the base coat color to seal the tape, so the contrasting color doesn't seep under the tape.
5. Let that color cure.
6. Paint the final stripe color & Let it dry.
7. Carefully pull off the tape, put all the furniture and stand back and enjoy your work.
Yes, I finished the room and the colors are lovely & bright. Maybe a little brighter than I expected, but I'm sticking with it for now. This large-ish bedroom has only one little window (the other wall has a chimney inside) so it needed the light.
I'll post a pic...sometime, of the finished room. Eli loves it & it's done. That's all that matters.
