Watch out for dinosaurs!
And butterflies. Austin wasn't going to leave the butterfly garden until one landed on him. This one did, and then wouldn't leave :)
Trying out the contortionist box.
Cone was supposed to be for checkers.
When we got back, we got some disappointing news. One of the highlights of the trip was going to be to go to the Mariners game Friday night to see Mike Sweeney play. I've known him since I was five, and always love getting a chance to see him in action. Unfortunately, yesterday he was traded to the Phillies. Good news for him since he'll have a chance at a ring, but bad news for us because we won't get to see him. Why couldn't they have waited until this weekend?!
Today was day 2 at the Seattle Center. The boys wanted to come back and try the circus acts that were to crowded yesterday at the Science Center.Tightrope walkers:
Then we went up in the Space Needle. Austin has been begging to go all week. We had a lot of fun, but it was a little hazy. We were also hoping the Blue Angels would fly over while we were up there, but they didn't start practicing until an hour later :(
After the Space Needle, we fulfilled one of Brendan's requests and rode the monorail downtown. We had lunch and walked around a little. We were going to go to the aquarium, but the boys were too tired. We got to sit in front of the monorail on the way back. At first Brendan was upset, but he ended up loving it!
