Breakfast while traveling through the American Heartland. Chilling out in the lounge car. Train stop in Glacier National Park. There were volunteer rangers from the National Park Service on our train and the kids got to become honorary junior rangers.
So I finished posting all our Seattle pictures but that’s not where our vacation ended. We boarded the train from Seattle to Chicago and started our 2 day voyage to the windy city. The trip was amazing. The kids had so much fun and Cole decided that he only wanted to travel by train from […]
We finished off our final full day in Seattle with dinner at the top of the Space Needle. It was amazing! We all loved every single minute of it. The food was excellent (Cole’s pasta was shaped like the Space Needle), the view was incredible (we sat right at the window) and the atmosphere was […]
It seems like I did a lot of laying on the ground to take pictures from below during this trip. These were from the Chihuly Glass Museum. The first is an entire ceiling made from handblown glass. The last 2 were taken by each of the kids’ favorite hanging sculptures.
After the EMP we headed over to the Pacific Science Center. It was a beautiful science center and we had a wonderful time exploring all their hands-on exhibits. Evidently, we had so much fun that I didn’t take very many pictures. We also went to a Beetles Laser Light Show while we were there. The […]
A few more from the EMP. The kids loved the Sound Lab & there was an amazing maze outside where we sat for a snack. I couldn’t resist a picture of Kiley in front of the Women Who Rock sign. I think that will come in handy one day.
Our last full day in Seattle we went downtown to the Seattle Center and spent the day exploring the museums and the Space Needle. Our first stop was the EMP Museum. The EMP is a music museum that was unbelievable. I was skeptical about how our kids would like it since they are young and […]
Since we stayed at the Residence Inn directly on Lake Union while we were in Seattle, we got to see seaplanes taking off and landing throughout the day. Jonathan was excited to be able to book us a seaplane tour for one evening after dinner. I was concerned that it would be too loud for […]
One of the last things we did before heading out of the zoo was to feed the elephants. It wasn’t nearly as close of an encounter as we had when we went to the elephant sanctuary outside of Gainesville a while back, but it was still pretty cool.
