Adventures in Seattle

Since we've been back in the Northwest, Cam has been thrilled to start up hiking again. In fact most of the sunny… or at least not rainy days that we've had we've been out in nature. Did I mention this is a beautiful place to live?

The Olympic Sculpture Park in Downtown Seattle is part of the Seattle Art Museum, but it's located in a free park with huge outdoor sculptures which makes it an all around win;  everyone gets to be outdoors, I get to see art, and we're good parents for exposing our children to culture.
And it was pretty cool. Wes decided this one looks like a brontosaurus.

I'm sure both kids would have loved it if not for two things: 1.We dressed our children for the sun, and forgot the "Seattle" and 2. We told Wes our plan to have a picnic at the fountain later, so he was anxious to be off. 

But they were thrilled about the International Fountain. Especially Wes. And Cam. Evidence:

Although I read somewhere that the guy who designs the shows throws in some parts where the water gets small especially to trick kids into going close and getting wet… Cam could have stayed a little drier just by knowing a little more about the Northwest rock scene (quoting him, "you knew that song?"). Wes on the other hand was not taking any risks and stayed perfectly dry.

  1. Did you notice that the space needle is photobombing the "brontosaurus" Picture?
