Science Fiction Museum
I grew up on Star Trek; I'm a trekky and I loved this museum!

 I think this is Michaelangelo from the Ninja Turtles movie, but the joy stick at the bottom controlled him.
 Klingon Mask
 Suit from The Rocketeer
 The Death Star. Bad picture, but this was the model they used in the Star Wars movies.
We walked over to the Experience Music Project. This guitar sculpture went all the way up the three floors.
Our trip was so great and relaxing and the drive was beautiful with all the fall colors.
Happy Thanksgiving

Space Needle & Museum of Flight

Our CityPass included a day and night trip to the Space Needle
This made our third 'tower.' We've also been to the Tower of the Americas in San Antonio, which is actually 87 feet higher than the Space Needle and the Willis Tower in Chicago which is the tallest building in the western hemisphere.
That night we went to The Museum of Flight. This is Ryan's favorite plane, the Corsair.
We met up with my aunt and uncle at the Museum.

Argosy Cruises Harbor Tour

Mt. Rainer

Did you know 1 in 10 people in Seattle own a boat?
Seattle is not even in the top 10 rainiest cities in the country, it rains a lot but they only get about 35" a year; however, they do have about 250 overcast days a year...
Quest Stadium

 Tankers from all over the world come to get grain from Seattle. They fill up their boats until they can't see any more red. You can see here that this tanker is empty.
 These cute otters were sunbathing, the captain of our cruise said it's hilarious to watch them jump up on there, and sometimes it takes them a few times.

Pictures from the aquarium

Baby Scott loved to smile and I could always cheer him up when I whistled.

 We took the girls to several parks because it was great weather the first few days we were there.
 They have the best parks in Seattle.
 We bought a citypass that got us into 7 different attractions. First stop, Seattle Aquarium.

 We were lucky enough to be there for this giant Pacific octopus' lunch. Before they fed him the squid he was sleeping and hard to see because they blend in with their surrounding. Once he could smell the food he turned bright red.
