Seattle Trip

Swimming at the Hotel on our way up to Seattle.

My Aunt Bev and Uncle Tony's front yard.

The backyard!

We found lots of seashells.

Jackson couldn't walk very well on the rocks - he is crying.

On the ferrie on the way to Seattle.

We went to the Seattle Aquarium. The kids had a great time, they got to pet starfish and other things that I do not know how to spell. Jackson couldn't say "fish" enough, it was fish this, and fish that, he thought it was really neat! After the Aquarium we had lunch with my cousins wife, Lara and their boys Nicholas and Brennan, it was great to see them.

Jeremy finally made it to Quest Field, he was bummed that it wasn't for a game, but he was happy to take a tour of the Stadium. Let me say that we - myself, Madison, Dawson, Jackson, and my mom - trekked through rain and snow to get there! It stopped when we finally got on the tour. It was fun, the kids actually enjoyed running around in the halls with tons of football pictures. The field was being worked on, so we were not allowed on the newly done field, but Jeremy stuck his foot on there when the gal giving the tour wasn't looking. We saw the press box, the broadcast and coaches booth, the visitor locker room, the club level, and the suite level. Jeremy is a true Seahawk fan!

Seahawk hand prints and the kickers foot print!

The visitors locker room.

Jeremy's gateway to heaven - the Seahawks locker room.

Our way back on the ferrie, Jackson loved it! He wanted to be outside in the wind and cold.

We also were very lucky to be there for Brennan's first birthday! (My cousin Brian's son). My camera ran out of room on the card and I wasn't able to take any pictures of the party, I know that my mom got some good shots. The party was a lot of fun and Brian and Lara's boys are just too adorable! We had a great time. When we asked what the kids like the most out of the trip they loved their great aunt Bev and uncle Tony's house. They had there own big play room to stomp around, there were two sets of stairs that they thought was just cool, and they loved taking Spencer and Katie (yellow labs) out to play ball. One night we made pizza and Madison really enjoyed the fact that she cooked dinner. The weather was typical Seattle weather, but that didn't put a damper on any of our plans. I was very happy that the kids didn't have too many melt downs about stuff, the car rides were great, if you could win the battles with Dawson(what movie we should watch next), and know exactly how many miles we had to the next stop (Madison was keeping track the whole time!).
