As promised, a photo recap of Avery's first visit to Seattle. I will mention that my sister does not like to fly. And this was Avery's very first flight.
So yay for both of them!
I decided to take them to Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium since it was going to be a rainy day, and there are a lot of indoor areas there. Avery was pretty interested in the starfish, but there was no way she was going to put her fingers in and touch.
It was really cold (by California standards) that day, so she spent much of the visit in the cozy stroller. This picture just cracks me up.
My sister mentioned that before they got to my house, Avery asked "Will Auntie Bootie have enough toys?" Avery managed to turn the toy box into a car, and the hamper into a rocking horse. We also found one of Justin's 4 wheel dollies which promptly became a race car.
Yeah, I have lots of toys.
The next day we went to Farrel-McWhirter Farm Park in Redmond. I had never been there, but one of my friends with kids suggested it (thanks Kim!).
It has beautiful trails through the woods, and a farm.
Avery was really excited to see the "piggies".
(I can't get over how big Avery has gotten, but also how tiny she is.)
Then we headed to Seattle (or as Avery would say: We ARE in SEATTLE!)
We made a stop at Hale's Brew Pub for lunch,
and then went down to the Pike Place Market.
Of course we got some treats.
And then a quick stop by Kerry Park for the view.
Thanks for visiting Avery, Leslie, & Mom! Come back again soon!
