Our brother in law graduated from the Police Academy in June, so we went a day early so we could be tourists in Seattle. The kids had never been in the Space Needle, so we started there.
We bought tickets and then waited in a long line for the elevators to take us to the observation deck. It was a typical gloomy Seattle day, but the views were still great.
We also headed over to Pike's Place Market and browsed all the shops and produce stands. We watched the famous fish market workers throw fish around, but we didn't end up buying anything.
We also took a few hours to explore the Pacific Science Center which happened to have a special exhibit of art made from Legos. We could not resist!
We were amazed at the classic works of art the artist recreated from LEGOS!
At the end of the exhibit each kid could write their name on a Lego brick and add it to an ongoing creation.
The rest of the science center was fun too. There were tide pools, an insect and butterfly exhibit, space exhibits, dinosaurs, and much more! We didn't get to everything so someday we'll have to go back.
