Seattle trip, Enchanted Forest, garden

Ok, so I am getting things a little out of order here. This is from last week. Rob had a business trip in Seattle and for the first time, the whole family got to come! (Since no one was in school) It was so fun! We went and looked at the outside of the space needle.

played around the on the parks around it.We got to go to Pike Market and let the kids each pick something out there.
Next we went to the Science Fiction/Jim Hensen/Jimi Hendrix music experience museum (kind of wierd huh?).

The kids got to perform with some of the muppets there.We got to see Kermit.And the Mana Mana gang.In the Jimi Hendrix museum they had this big display of guitars that went up two levels. The guitars actually played too (some of them).
This is Michael Jackson's jacket and glove.
When we got home, the kids had their first soccer game in the rain. At least Bella scored a goal! Robert did a great job as goalie :)
My Aunt and Uncle invited us to go to the Enchanted Forest with them that Saturday. It was our first experience and the kids loved it.

This is the Hansel and Gretal house.Yes, you could go inside her mouth.

We got a shot with Abraham Lincoln.Here is Lisa, Shelby, Isa and I waiting for the rest to come out of the Haunted House. (They did not like it!)
Isabelle and Austin were so happy to go on the train...
Until Isabelle realized that her jacket was undone and cried the whole time! Just enjoy the ride girlie!
Robert and LydiaSteve's fam, thanks for the great time!Here Rob is showing off his strength with a family friend Spencer.I went to a town hall meeting at the Clark County Fairgrounds. I was amazed at the amount of people there. I arrived an hour and a half early and had hundreds of people in line ahead of me. This was the line in front of me.and behind..We got to taste some food from our garden this week. We had some corn, broccoli, strawberries, and tomatoes, and they actually tasted good! Yea for gardens!
Sorry for the long posts, I was behind!

Yum, home-grown food! I've never tried the broccoli--does it work? I need to do a big long update as well. Watch for it soon on my blog!

I am so jealous about the Muppets..they so rock! I am so happy that you where able to get a quick vacation mixed with business in Seattle. It all looks like fun.

Tricia you do a great job with the blog! However, you picked awful pictures of me (except the one with Spencer on my shoulders). I guess that is your revenge for my week-long business trip. You are the best!
