I recently had my 10th college reunion, so we took the opportunity to have a family vacation in Seattle. Despite partying into the late hours of the night on Halloween the night before, we loaded up in the car at the crack of dawn and hit the road. We changed our road trip strategy with Henry--as long as I sat beside him and kept him well-fed with snacks and milk, he was fairly happy. The big kids are experienced roadtrippers by now and were happy to watch several movies on our long trip.
By the time we hit Seattle in the early afternoon, we were all ready to ditch the car, so we hit the Pacific Science Center. I'm not sure who had more fun--Sam or Joe. The two of them were off and running after a quick potty stop. We managed to catch up with them for a few exhibits, but Natalie, Henry and I had a pretty awesome time ourselves in the toddler center there.
|Natalie loved the "anti gravity mirror". You could stand along the edge and lift your leg up and it would look like both your legs were floating.|
|Henry started out in the stroller, but quickly decided he'd been in a seat far too long that day so we used the stroller to haul our stuff, not our baby.|
|"PACIFIC SCIENCE CENTER!"|

The day just got better and better. After the Science Center, we boarded the Monorail to Westlake Center. Again, better and better.
