During Mid-October we flew our nephew Mick up for a trip to Washington for doing so well in school. We took him on a pretty good and exhausting tour of Seattle.  He got to the Tri-Cities on Wednesday evening and on Thursday morning we got in the car and drove to Seattle. Our first order or business was to see the Space Needle and take a trip to the top. 

After some fun at the Space Needle we went next door to EMP- they have a lot of cool Sci-Fi displays to look at and the music rooms are fun to play around in.

Roderick was so great in the front carrier- he liked being held close and being able to look up at whoever was carrying him.

This was just a fun thing between the parking lot and the EMP.

After some dinner at Mod Pizza it was dark and we took another trip to the top of the Space Needle to see the city by night. 

On Friday we started the day and Pacific Science Center- we saw an IMAX and got to go into a butterfly room, which was my favorite.

Here's Cameron and Roderick with a T-Rex in the dinosaur room.

Another cute shot of Roderick enjoying his Seattle visit, this time in the stroller.

The afternoon took us over to the Aquarium- Here are Cameron and Mick in front of a huge tank of fish- we even found one that was missing an eye!

Saturday started at the Museum of Flight- look at this cute little Astronaut!

After the museum we caught a harbor cruise and got some great pictures of the city.

By Saturday evening we were all pretty tired, but I fit in a little shopping trip to IKEA with just Roderick and I :)

On Sunday we attended church and had the pleasure of watching a Primary Program before stopping at a few key photo ops on our way out of town. Here is the Fremont Street Troll.

And Roderick and I with some of the pipes at the park. It was a great trip and it was fun to take Mick and Roderick around Seattle.  There's no better indicator of a successful trip than coming back tired and happy!
