Friday with Dad

This was the only picture I got from the day.  My camera battery died before I could take any more!  This was at the Seattle Symphony (fuzzy I know).

Today was a great day! Kelly took the day off work and we went to Tiny Tots at the Seattle Symphony with our play group. The boys had a great time. They had fun music and stories for the kids. Very energetic people hosted the program. Andrew seems to have a love of music. He clapped his hands and danced the whole time. It was a fun way to start the morning. 

Since Kelly was free from the cares of work, we decided to make it a day in Seattle and we took the boys to the Pacific Science Center. We spent a couple of hours wandering around. Jacob loved the butterfly house. He thought that it was amazing that there were so many butterflies everywhere. He ran around pointing them all out.  His favorites were the ones eating bananas; he thought it was neat that they eat bananas like he does. There was also a centrifugal force funnel that you tossed marble-size balls into. Jacob loved tossing balls into it, watching them spin around the funnel, then running to the bottom to get the balls after they dropped through the hole at the bottom. He did that for a good ten minutes. 

From the Science Center we decided to take the Monorail to Westlake Center Mall. We had a great ride. Since Jacob is so into trains, he loved riding the Monorail. We sat in the front so we could see the city around us. HE LOVED THIS! At the mall we walked around and had a bite to eat. The whole time in the mall Jacob kept asking when we where going to get back on the train. . . Both Jacob and Andrew did great all day. It was a perfect day filled with family and great Christmas activities. --emily

I can't wait to hear more about the concert - sounds like it was great (and sorry that I made you think it might not be.)

What a fun day! I hadn't heard about that special children's concert until last week. Oh, to have been your kid for a day! =)
