We managed to get away on a mini trip to Seattle this past weekend.
Russ had a class up there all week, so we went early and did a little bit of sight-seeing.
Things are always much more simple in the initial wave of inspiration.
We ended up having to drive two vehicles.
I thought there was a pool at the hotel. The boys were ecstatic. Then no pool.
Sunday was overcast, and then it rained.
Keeping 3 young, fearless boys reigned in in a major city took both parents and all hands. Hence very few pictures.
I hate driving in big cities. I really do.
A hotel switch the second night. Smaller room. Still no pool.
Russ headed to his class on Monday.
I took the boys to the hotel's restaurant breakfast buffet. Lamaze breathing necessary.
And then the 4 hour drive home without Dad. Sigh.
On a positive note:
I'm glad we went.
The boys enjoyed seeing the Space Needle.
They really enjoyed the short monorail ride.
We visited two science museums.
The boys are great car-riders, all things considered.
And we are really glad Dad is coming home tonight.
