Seattle Aquarium and Seattle Zoo

Three brave girls braved the Seattle heat, (no air conditioning??!?%? what the crap?) no GPS, a packed full van, bears that can smell Cheetos a mile away, some outrageous parking prices, a shy octopus that wouldn't come out so the kids could see it, some really weird fish that swam sideways, to take their kids to Seattle to go to the Aquarium and the Seattle Zoo for some fun memories, sweaty kids, oh and not to mention the awesome Target that has the AMAZING boyfriends T-shirt, that you have to own at least 3 or 4 of in different colors, and their awesome toys on Clearance! (BumbleBee $90 Transformer for $22, yeah, Christmas shopping has begun)
Neither of my kids would actually touch the anemones or star fish, but I did and I got a few looks when I squealed when the Anemone wrapped around my finger.
face painting, Beck and Ashton got a shark, Kylie a penguin, and Paisley a red crab.
When we made it to the Hotel after a near death defying stop for Ashton to pee on the side of the rode, we hit the swimming pool and ordered too much pizza from Pizza Hut.Then for Thursday after the wonderful Target finds, we made it to the zoo at about 1:00 and stayed for the rest of the day.We bought these little "seed sticks" and got the feed birds. It was pretty fun. There were like 100 green parakeets and Beck wanted the only blue one in the whole place to eat from his stick, so we spent most of our time trying to coax him down from his perch, but to no avail.This is the only pic that I got of me and my kids and it was at about the end where we had totally had it. It was very hot and we were dirty....Beck picked out these little squishy sharks and dolphins from the Zoo Store and man, were the ever a hit!Paisley's most favorite thing about the 2 days, her watermelon flavored candy cane from the Zoo Store. We made it back at about 1in the am and we are pretty wiped today, but it was a lot of fun!

So much fun, your pictures are cute, how is the aquarium, I have wanted to go but got too many mixed reviews??? Normally people freeze at the zoo in Seattle, so were you lucky it was so hot or unlucky? :) I love the first picture, you guys look so cute!

I think we could have spent two days there.... Next time huh? And stop bragging about the transformer toy. Did I tell you what Ashton wants for his birthday???? Love you...
