Trip to the BIG city!

Really, is there anything better than watching your favorite movie with a cup full of Cherrios?  I mean, really?  How could life get any better.  Oh wait, yes it can get better...have you totally adorable sister tag along trying to swipe your "O's" every chance she gets!  Luckily, Devon loves Isabelle so much and he usually never really complains about Snatch-zilla.

On Friday, Scott had the day off and we all decided to head over to Seattle for a fun KID day at the Children's Museum at the Seattle Center.  So we headed off to the BIG CITY!  Of course we multi tasked our trip and got a new lens for my camera....sweet!  Before we got to the museum, we had lunch at Subway.  It was so much fun watching Devon drink from a straw and Isabelle wiggle in my lap.

We researched the place online and it appeared there was a section within the museum that would fit both kids.  It was called the Discovery Zone.  Well, upon arrival, we were faced with the disheartening sign that read "Discovery Zone CLOSED!"  URgh  So, we decided to take the plunge and head in anyway.  Aside from being kind of lame, Devon and Isabelle were fully entertained the entire time.  So, I guess in the end, it was a success.

So, one we arrived home, we all got snuggly in pajamas and watched our current favorite movie "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs".  The way that Devon asks to watch this cinematic triumph is "meatball" and he then points to the TV.  If you ignore him, he will get you the three remotes it takes to play a movie.  Way too cute not to put it on for him.  Now of course, Isabelle is fully and completely addicted to watching the TV.  Ahhh, now we actually have limits on when the TV is on in the house.  I do fear on a daily basis I am turning into my parents!  :)  I guess there would be worse things to have happen in the world!

Cheese on wheels

Devon and Cheese on Wheels!

OK, I think I am finally done trying to prefect this blog.  I still can't seem to get the header centered, but I am now giving up.  But, in the process of trying to figure that one bit of info out, I sort of got a bit more comfortable reading html code.  YIKEs, I might be turning into a nerd over here!  Anyhow, I have figured out how to make my photos larger and put together collages, so I am calling it good.  (for now...I have way too much to do in the next few months!)  I know I am going to want to tinker with the settings a bit more and add a few gadgets, but who knows when that will happen.

I hope you come and follow us on our journey as one big crazy family. 

Dud pic attempt!

This was a dud attempt!  The quality of the pics stinks, but I still like Devon's face in this picture so I guess I am going to leave it up for now.  The flower picture was taken outside of my house about 2 weeks ago!  Like on Feb 15!  Yes, the flowers are blooming over here.  Looking out my window, our Fancy Cherry Tree is already budding and I bet by tomorrow we will have flowers!  On March 1st!  This weather has been crazy this year!
