Our 1st First Thursday

Andy took Thursday off and we all headed to Seattle to enjoy a few free museums! Seattle has a program called First Thursdays where some museums are free on the 1st Thursday of the month each month. We were able to enjoy the Museum of History & Industry @ UW, Seattle Art Museum, and the EMP. MOHAI had lots of hands on things for the kids, SAM was a great place to talk about diferent pictures and what was happening in the scenes, and EMP had a Jim Henson exhibit complete with Bert & Ernie and an opportunity for the kids to do some puppeteering, too! We also went to Pike Place Market and enjoyed the booths and a tasty lamb gyro. It was, of course, a day with record heat, but the museums all had some level of AC (SAM was the coolest by far) and there was shade at the market. Penny rode in the umbrella stroller most of the time and Theo walked on his own almost the entire day! We ended the day at Woodland Park where we shared a tasty Red Mill burger and shake. The weather was starting to cool down as we headed home and we all got to bed around 10:30pm (the kids had been sleeping in the car for most of the ride home). It was a wonderful day and everyone had a great time!
