Seattle Trip Day 7

On Day 7 we had a lot of things planned. We started off by going to Pikes Market. That place was a lot of fun. Seeing fish fly through the air, eating pastries, and of course the golden pig.After Pikes Market we went on the Mono Rail to the Seattle Center where we Rode the Ducks. These are guided tours through the city on the back of what they call a duck. It's basically a car and a boat all in one. You get a guided on the water also. We saw the Sleepless in Seattle house on that tour. We had a tour guide that was a riot. He had music that went with almost every attraction we saw as well as costumes that went with those songs.

Perry and DeDe went out and bought the kids some toys that day, which the kids really loved. We also went down to the locks. These are like a miniture Panama Canal. To get the boats from the salt water to the fresh water is a big process. The water levels are almost a fifteen foot difference. It was cool to see the locks work. We also saw a beautiful Great Dane. The kids loved it. We also went into the Bar where the final episode of The Deadliest Catch is always filmed. That was cool too.

Seattle Trip Day 6

Alright I think it is about time for us to finish posting our trip.

This day was a special day because it was Jaxson's birthday. Tyson and I hadn't bought him a present because we didn't want to haul it up there just to turn around and haul it back. We ended up buying a gift for him anyway because that's kind of lame not to get a gift on your birthday. He ended up having to sleep with the dump truck we bought him because he wouldn't part with it when it came time to go to bed.

That day we went to the Seattle Aquarium. The kids loved it. Carson sat in his stroller the entire time, mezmorized by all that was going on. The only part he didn't like was when he touched one of those spiky things in the pool. I don't know what they are called, but their spikes really do hurt. Why wouldn't they? They're spikes!

That night we had dinner with DeDe and her boyfriend Perry. We had a little birthday party for Jaxson. It was a great day.
