Seattle Trip Pics

Here's a brief rundown of our trip:
Montana: Grandma Pearl, MT family, Flathead Lake - sprained ankle
Spokane: Poppy & Mimie, downtown Spokane, Cat Tales Park, Riverfront Park, Manito Gardens
Seattle: Tyler's parents, my parents, my grandparents, Papa Dave's ash-spreading & memorial service, Everett Children's Museum

Tyler, his mom, and Tara at Papa Dave's ash-spreading on Saturday. Papa Dave passed away several weeks before our trip. He will be greatly missed!
The last picture we have of Maggie with Papa Dave, summer of 2008:

Sunday we headed up to the Bellingham-area to see my grandparents and family. Mount Baker from the car window on the way to grandpa & Grandma's.
My Grandpa and Grandma DeHoog. Maggie loved that Grandpa handed out candy from the duck dish, and that Grandma gave her cookies!
Reading the comics with Grandpa.
Here I am!
We visited with my other grandma, Grandma Margaret the same afternoon. Grandma let Maggie give her a ride on her electric chair, again.
Maggie with Grandpa Jones and Gramma Sue.
Sharing some kind of treat with Uncle Brian!
Gramma Sue's lovely garden.
Feeding Gramma Sue's koi.
We took the girls to the kids museum. They had fun the entire time!
Dancing on the stage in the theatre exhibit. It kept them entertained for a good 1/2 hour.The second trip through the different areas, there were other girls on the stage. You can tell Maggie and Alexis were not pleased.
Milking a cow in the farm area. Water came out of the udders, the girls thought that was a lot of fun.
Playing in the train exhibit.
The playground is on the roof, and the playground was 3 stories high! Maggie and Alexis scaled all three flights of stairs to go down the big swirly slide. It was so cute!
Reading a story with Auntie Tara and Alexis. Maggie loved the time we spent at the Spaid's, getting to see Alexis was definitely the highlight of her trip, and she complains often about how much she misses her! I didn't get a good picture of their farewell hug at the airport - Maggie was too sour-faced. And let me tell you about the fit she pitched in the security line about her cousin. It was not pretty.
