Over spring break we made a couple of trips to Seattle to do some fun and unusual things with the boys. We’ve been wanting to take Avery on an underground tour of Seattle for some time, and knew we had to do it before Layla was born, or it would be another year before we could make it happen. So one afternoon we hired a babysitter for Kieron and Silas, and took Avery on the tour. Here we all are waiting for it to begin.

I think he really enjoyed it. I’m sure he will get more out of it in a few years, but it was a pretty fun thing to do together.

Here he is making fart noises on the same stage where Ellen Degeneres, Louis CK, and other greats have performed.

At the end of the week, we all headed back to Seattle to go on the Seattle Great Wheel, another outing we’ve been wanting to do that will soon be more difficult with a baby.
The boys were somewhat nervous at first, but loved the view!
Then we headed to Volunteer Park. Jonathan photographed a family session for couple whose wedding we photographed a few years back. Meanwhile, the boys and I played around, mostly in these trees. Apparently the boys were in a modeling mood, because they kept asking me to take their pictures. Here are a few cute ones I snapped on my phone.
The squirrels here were very friendly, I’d say too friendly. I’m pretty sure this little guy would have climbed in our hands if we’d let him.
