Playing Tourist in Your Own Town

Last week we enjoyed the company of Will's mom and stepfather.  They came to visit and help out since I was busy with training and Will is still on crutches.  It was great to have them around and it also gave us the excuse to be tourists in our own town.  We seized the opportunity and took the kids up in the Space Needle (something they have never done but have asked repeatedly to do). We also bought tickets to visit the new Chihuly Garden and Glass Exhibit at the Seattle Center.  It was amazing. If you ever get the chance to experience his art, it is worth the money.  Next time I visit, I really hope the weather is nice. That garden would be unforgettable in the sun.  The weather did clear in the late afternoon, just in time to savor the views and a great dinner at Ray's Boathouse in Ballard.  The final event of the day was to return to downtown Seattle, and take our seats at the MythBusters Live on Stage Show.  Sometimes the best times and sights CAN be found right here at home!
