On Hannah’s birthday, we attended Eric’s work picnic. There was a cool rock wall to climb. Hannah loved it, but liked the swinging back down more than the climbing up.
Eric got into it too, and made it to the top to ring the bell! Of course he made it look effortless.
And Jake climbed too!
And not to be outdone (and new me never says no to something just because I’ve never done it before) I gave it a go, too. I only made it up about halfway, however.
It was fun, and like anything else, I’ve never regretted doing something even if it scares me. What I was most surprised about was the amount of upper body strength that rock climbing must require. And I better get me some of that because I fully intend to do this again! 🙂
We also had dinner with my parents at Red Robin where Hannah got her free dessert and balloons and gifts galore!
We then headed south to Everett where we attended a birthday party at the Imagine Children’s Museum. Before we got there, we had a quick stop at Target where we ran into Spiderman and Batman!
At the children’s museum: (If you are in Everett – you must check this place out! It’s so AWESOME!)
Not sure who was having more fun….
Jacob loved the train exhibit!
Hannah was climbing walls. Again!
At the fossil exhibit! Jake was in heaven!
Getting a little help from Daddy!
A rare moment of cooperation!
Eric giving it a try!
Then down to Seattle for the baseball game on Sunday!
And of course 9 innings is a LOT to ask of littles to sit and watch, so we toured the stadium and spent much of the time on the escalators!
Then we got in the HUGE line as it was Kids Run The Bases Day!
Hannah fell asleep just before we got to the bases – poor thing! she was so pooped!
Jake waits for his turn…and Hannah is OUT!
Great weekend! (But I think we need a week to recuperate!)
