My parents visit - Part 1: Seattle

My parents came to visit this past weekend, and we had a blast - going and going and going! The first two days were spent in Seattle. These pictures were all from day 1. We bought a Seattle Pass, which is a fabulous deal and includes a ferry ride around the harbor and a bunch of museums.




Hanging out at the park for a while - and I have to brag - doesn't Lance have the cutest 4th of July outfit? I bought those shorts for him 7 months ago as his 4th of July outfit!



The cutest guys in the world, so happy they are mine!



As always, my gorgeous momma sita!

Lance was mesmerized by all of the sea life at the Seattle Aquarium.

Of course we went to Pike Place Market - we loved it so much we went back three times in two days!
We ended the day by watching the fireworks down at the pier!



Saturday - we went to the space needle, Pacific Science Center - a must for anyone that lives in Seattle, seriously the coolest science museum I have ever been too, and ended the day with a Mariners/Tigers baseball game. This is what my dad was most looking forward to, so we had awesome seats, and the weather was perfect. I heard that the Mariners are the worst team in the league, so it even made the game better that they ended up pulling off a win in the bottom of the 8th inning. So awesome.

Stay tuned - - - coming up: San Juan Islands!

WOW yet again I just love reading your blogs!! Thank you so much for the cute advice for outings. Can I ask a dumb question but what do you do for Lance for naps?? Plus like for the 4th of July did you just keep him up as long as you were out? I am finding out that I am treating parenting more of a burden than fun that I can have with Maddie. I am so set on her schedule I think because I don't know how to not be. I don't know if that makes sense, but I seriously love your parenting style so much! You have to tell me what is your daily routine.
Oh and I am sooo excited to be pregnant with Marianne and Amy. It will be so much fun to share it with them :)

Katie your summer looks like a blast and Lance is so cute. I can't believe how fast they grow up. I am excited for you guys to get back though. We will have to do a lot with the babies now that I barely ever work.
