Super Awesome Day!

Personally, I think that the title of the blog and this first picture says it all about our day yesterday, but it would probably be good to add a little explanation. Travis suggested that we take the boys to Discovery Park~a huge park with a 4 mile hiking loop. Here's a link if you want to see where we were. http://www.cityofseattle.net/parks/Environment/discovparkindex.htm

We hiked through the forest and then spent 20 minutes going down a billion steps and bridges to get down to the ocean water. We stayed there for a bit and then hiked back up. The boys did a really great job keeping up and had a great time!


While hiking Travis gave the boys a lesson on aphids and why they are called "spit bugs". There is a picture of Travis showing it to the boys and then, a picture of the spit bug's eggs. Very educational. They also played under a really cool tree that if it rained would have given great coverage! I especially loved the picture of Travis walking with the boys. They wanted to walk with Daddy, not with me. They love his days off! Can you blame them?

The picture of Travis and Connor is so precious. Connor's favorite thing in the whole world is to go to Seattle with his Daddy and throw rocks and see the "baba-booey" (buoy) (it's a Howard Stern thing that will have to be a blog all on it's own cause it's so cute).

Oh, and the bottom picture was of a VW bug painted like an alien that we saw up on Capital Hill. That place has an extremely eclectic bunch of people with several umm, alternative bars...Well, the picture below kind of explains the whole town, but we thought it was a pretty funny car. Last weekend there was a gay pride parade in the area. The kids got a kick out of seeing a new part of town and liked all the rainbow flags that were hung on all the buildings.

Needless to say, it was a truly awesome day! We are so lucky to have each other and be a family that just likes to be together. Joseph was upset when I said we were going home. He said Travis and I were boring at home! Imagine that! (o:
