More Seattle

Here we are in the heart of downtown Seattle having lunch. It was the perfect day outside! Another picture of lunch outside.
Kyle has a book from his Aunt Emily called "Larry Gets Lost in Seattle." Kyle absolutely loves this book and it shows this little puppy going to all of the big sites in Seattle. Kyle couldn't wait to go and see in person all of the places that Larry visited. One thing that he was most excited about was the "Train in the Sky" as he called it. Here we are getting ready to board the monorail.
Brookie and Grandma waiting for the train.
The moment Kyle had been waiting for...actually being on the train in the sky!

The Space Needle!!

Brookie being silly! She is on an "upside down" kick lately that started on our trip. She will only get dressed upside down. It has been quite difficult to try and dress her by myself since Christian has been back to work.
Brookie loving Grandma Kim!
I LOVED my gorgeous $5.00 flowers from Pike Place!
Brookie very much enjoyed the flying fish at Pike Place. She kept saying, "More, More!"
Enjoying a yummy snack at the end of an action-packed day!

I miss Seattle SOOOOOOOOOOOO bad and would move up there in a heart beat if we had the opportunity!

Bike-Riding Maniac

As most of you know, Kyle is obsessed with riding his bike! He could ride it ALL day if I let him. For a long time now he has been begging us to take his training wheels off. I was hesitant because his legs are kind of short and I didn't know if he'd be able to catch himself when stopping. He finally started to say, "Mommy, will you take my training wheels off for my birthday?" At that point I decided that if he wants it that bad I will at least let him try. We started to take them off when Christian was on his way home from work. I figured that would give us a little time to get them off and get used to it, then Christian could be there for the big moment when we let him try it by himself. Once we got them off I called Christian and was talking to him for a minute and looked over and he was off riding all by himself. I couldn't believe it! We never even held onto the back of his seat running beside him...he just up and took off without us. He is a little maniac. The video below was taken about 5 minutes after we took his training wheels off. It has been several days now and he is already trying new, crazy things with his bike. I kind of feel bad now for not taking the training wheels of sooner!

Seattle Mariners

We recently took an amazing trip up to Seattle to visit Christian's family. We have so many pictures to post, but for now here are the pictures of the Mariners' game we were fortunate enough to go to. This first picture is in front of Qwest Field where the Seahawks play (which is right next door to Safeco Field). Our happy little Mariner would not stay off of the stairs!
Here is the famous baseball glove in front of the stadium.
Kyle was wanting to catch a foul ball soooo bad!
Here is most of the gang!
Lately Brooklyn has turned into a kitty. Here she is licking Christian. Often Brookie won't do what we ask her to, but the Kitty will!
I tried so hard to get a good picture of these two in their Griffey shirts, but this was the best I could do with our little animal!

We had such an awesome time! Stay tuned for many, many more Seattle pictures!
