No time to miss Mum

November 28, 2013
We aren't missing Mum one bit, there's so much going on around here.

We aren’t missing Mum one bit, because there has been so much going on around here.

We’ve hosted a friend from Argentina.

Been to Munchkin’s.

And today we even went to a different office and made some new friends because those construction guys are still cleaning up our flood.

We might not have had time to miss you Mum, but we still love you!

A flood at my office!

There was lots of excitement at my office today.  Well, us kids found it exciting.  I’m not sure if the teachers saw it that way.

Rafa wanted some feathers too but then he decided that being a turkey wasn't for him so he pulled them all off and put them in the bin!

November 20, 2013

I thought Mum was a bit crazy wanting to take us kids to a place that’s full of glass!  But the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibition was awesome.

The Space Needle

November 19, 2013
We started the day trying to get a beanie shot (all beanies hand made by Bree) but us kids weren't in the mood and nobody tipped Papi off about the shot's theme.

We started the day trying to get a beanie shot (all beanies hand made by Bree) but us kids weren’t in the mood to pose for the camera, and besides, nobody told Papi that this was supposed to be the beanie shot.

We were sure grateful to have our beanies on though.  No wonder the trees were all blue - it was freeeeeeeezing cold.

The monorail was a much warmer place to be.  And so much fun!

We could have walked to the Space Needle.  But the monorail was much warmer, and a lot more fun.

First we played around in the parks under the space needle.  Papi played with the panoramic photo function on his phone.

We particularly liked the scary sounds the Sonic Blooms made.

Then it was time to head up to the top of the needle.

The view was great, but we ran around as fast as we could because it was even colder way up there!

Getting the group shot inside was much warmer.
