Pacific Science Center

This morning I braved Seattle traffic and took the girls to the Science Center. Jr. has chosen a new life calling. Marine Biology! She was fascinated by the faux tide pool with the real animals and when we walked back through all the exhibits after the school groups left she stayed there for 10 minutes and had to be pried away.

We went to the Tropical butterfly room where Jr. was "chased" by some killer butterfly's...well she thought that was what was happening!

We ate lunch outside and Jr. was stalked by a seagull that kept LOOKING at HER!!!!!

Fred loved the tempered glass exhibit- you cranked up a bowling ball and then let it fly at the glass, she covered her ears and jumped every time it hit.

George loved it all especially the cute dinosaur exhibits and the water play area. She also lucked out with a super cute shirt that was on a mega sale it was only $3!

We stopped at the little pink house on the way home and bought some almond roca, peanut roca and cherry mountain bars- my favorite!

Now we're collecting stuff and doing laundry so we can be ready to go tomorrow just after lunch.
