Mountain Man Rendezvous 2014

Mountain Man is for teachers and priests to come display what they have learned in scouts throughout the year.  It was at Camp Grizzly April 25-26 2014.

On the way home they got not one, but two flat tires on the scout trailer.  Kirt had even made a point to buy a spare tire before they left.  Guess he should have bought two spares.

Spring Break Trip to Seattle April 10-12

For Spring Break this year we went to Seattle.  We bought the City Pass so we got to go on a cruise of Elliott Bay and the Seattle Harbor, up the Space Needle 2 times, to the Seattle Zoo, the Pacific Science Center and the Aquarium.  We also went shopping at IKEA.  The boys loved this part.  Katie got new furniture for her bedroom.  (This was her birthday present and she has been waiting patiently for about 2 months to get it.)
On our way!
Lunch on the pier.

 Woodland Park Zoo

 Pacific Science Center

 There was a butterfly exhibit at the Pacific Science Center
 There was also a Spy Exhibit that was at the Pacific Science Center.  Kirt really liked it, but the kids weren't as interested in it.  It was a lot of reading and not much hands on.  So while Kirt was finishing up at the Spy Exhibit, the kids and I went back up the Space Needle (the City Pass included 2 times passes to go up the Space Needle so we might as well use them.)
