Adventure Monday~ Kids Edition

So this weekend my roommate’s niece and nephew stayed with us, they are 6 & 4 respectively. Added into that equation was my roommate’s 12-year-old son, and our combined 4 cats and a dog. Needless to say we had a very busy household this weekend! I wasn’t able to play much with everyone on Saturday and Sunday because I was working, though I did get a pedicure from the 6-year-old on Saturday night and was able to see the bugs that they had caught on Sunday. Today, however, we all spent Adventure Monday together (minus the pets) at the Pacific Science Center here in Seattle.

We had lots of fun playing with all of the interactive exhibits and walking through the butterfly terrarium. Anyone who knows me well, knows that I love butterflies, so this of course was the highlight of the trip for me! The kids had a blast touching everything to see how it worked, viewing various bugs and reptiles (I stayed away from that exhibit) and watching the robotic dinosaurs.

And some dinosaurs.

After the Science Center, we drove down to Tacoma to drop the kids off with their dad, we also dropped off my roommate’s son so he can spend the summer with his dad as well, then my roommate and I hit the casino before heading home, where I quickly turned my $20 into $60, then spent the rest of the evening playing on my winnings. I ended up breaking even and had a great time! Now we are relaxing with a movie and some cocktails!

Also on today’s agenda was our produce delivery from Full Circle.

Green grapes, baby lettuces, spinach, cucumber, plums, apriplums, oranges, and avocados today!
