September 2011 - Fairs and Zoos
September is often the prettiest month in
Seattle. I think there is a reason the
University of Washington always starts
school so late in the year!
This year some of our staycation trips
included Country Village in Bothell where
you can ride the little train, the Point
Defiance Zoo and Aquarium (PDZA), and
the Puyallup fair. At PDZA, the older kids
got to ride a camel and the younger kids
played in the fountain. Quinn really loved
the meerkats, to the point we sometimes
throw Meerkat Manor on Netflix to calm
him down now.
Allyssa was just old enough to start
enjoying the fair rides, with Matthew
itching to grow an inch to he could go on
the bigger rides.
We also took one trip to Emerald Downs
where the kids got to play laser tag, ride a
pony, do bouncy houses, and Mommy/
Matthew got wax hands. Meanwhile, by
the fourth race Daddy had won enough to
pay for the food and entrance fee, so we
left while we were ahead!
