This last weekend, Matt finally had a weekend off, so we decided to head to Seattle for a very quick trip. Matt has never seen the Seattle sites, and my brother and his family, and Matt's sister and husband live over there so we got to spend time with them, too. The kids did pretty well on the 5 hour drive. (although I'm not looking forward to our 28+ hour drive to Iowa coming up VERY soon.) Besides the kids being grumpy and sleep deprived, we had a great little trip. The weather was an incredible 75 degree, no cloud in the sky day which is not very common for Seattle.
Ballard Locks. Boats of all kinds pass through to travel between fresh water and the sea. They raise/lower the water level in sections to help them pass safely. Pretty cool!
It was incredibly crowded. We didn't stay long because trying to maneuver strollers through the crowds was nearly impossible.
The kids being good and holding hands. How sweet. I should pull this picture out when I've had it with them :)
