Seattle trip

We just arrived home after a fun, quick trip to Seattle. Here are a few pictures of our adventures.

The kids looked cute carrying their backpacks in the airport.

We went to a Thomas and Friends Live show at Key Arena. The kids loved seeing the trains. It was a pretty good show, but the kids would have liked it better if there was more train movement, and a little less people dancing and singing. The stage area was fairly small, and we were kind of far away. But they enjoyed it.

The carousal at the Auburn super mall is a favorite activity when we visit. This was actually our first stop after we arrived on Friday.

Another favorite place is the park by Auntie Christy's house. We had just a few minutes to play before heading to the airport. The kids made sure they went on everything.

Grandma and Grandpa Cooke, who were in Seattle for the Radford's wedding, were on our flight coming home. Boys on one side of the plane, girls on the other.
It was a nice time for Meadow and Logan. They of course loved seeing Auntie Christy and Farley the cat. Next time we travel we will have 4 kids!

Meadow's Art

I just had to show off more of Meadow's drawings. She really is an amazing artist! I wish I had more time to draw with her! (Little mischievous brothers tend to get in the way.)
The first one is of a bird flying over a red ant, a baby red ant, and a black ant. This is a horse eating oranges from a tree, and wearing slippers!

She is so creative!

We are taking Meadow and Logan to Seattle tomorrow to visit auntie Christy, and to see a Thomas the Tank Engine Live show at Key Arena! We wanted to do something special for them and take one last trip before life changes with a new baby. Brennen will be staying with my mom. It should be fun! We'll be back Saturday night and I'll post pictures.

The Great Exciting Outing

Well, we haven't had much to add to our blog lately, and I've hardly even taken any pictures since Christmas! We have all been sick with the bad cold that is going around. Other than grandma's houses, we haven't been out and about much. So, here's a new post and some pictures to show we're still alive.
Desperate to get out of the house, we went on a little outing. Not really that exciting, but it was all I could think of. First we went through the car wash. At first they liked watching it, but the noise scared Logan and Brennen a little.Next we took some boxes to the recycling bin. Meadow is really into recycling lately, (she learned about it from Blue's Clues) so we helped save the planet, and reduced our carbon footprint. We are good people.
Then we went for lunch at the grocery store, (another thing Meadow gets excited about) before heading back home for naps.
It turned out to be simple but fun!
