A Dry Day…

…at Seattle Center made for a nice walk with my camera.

 

On Saturday Katie and I went to a Bridal Expo at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. It was a small expo and we finished up before noon so we decided to walk across the grounds to the Pacific Science Center to try to get into the Harry Potter Exhibit. The Exhibit was sold out till 7:00 P.M. so we decided to come back on a weekday when the crowds wouldn’t be a problem.

 

The 1962 Seattle World’s Fair, otherwise known as Century 21, gave visitors a glimpse of the future and left Seattle with a lasting legacy. The exposition gave Seattle world-wide recognition, effectively “putting it on the map.”

The Seattle Center is the site of the 1962 World’s Fair with a lot of expansion on the property since 1962. The Space Needle has become the major landmark of our Pacific Northwest Region.

 

 

After we found some treats at a BBQ cook off happening on the center grounds we popped into the Center House to get a drink. The Center House boasts a food court and a Children’s Museum. The Food court had a great variety of food choices and it also has a Starbuck’s so that’s where we headed.

 

When I was homeschooling Katie we had a membership to the Seattle Science Center so we could come and have hands on education there. We also enjoyed many plays at the Seattle Children’s Theater which is also on the grounds.

 

Hope your weekend was good.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. I’ve never gotten close to the Space Needle when I was in Seattle. I’m assuming you can go up in it…is it just a viewing area on top? I didn’t know you ever homeschooled. We did for a few years….for us they were precious years with our girls. I really got to know them then….so cool. Hope it’s a good week for you!

    • Pam, Yes you can go up to the top and there is an observation deck and a revolving restaurant. There is another level that you can rent for functions like weddings, etc.
      I homeschooled Katie from the 4th grade thru 6th grade because she was being eaten alive by a band of mean girls at school. It was a very rewarding time!
      Blessings!

  2. We decided to bring our oldest home because she was so quiet and easy going and I just wanted to know her better. Our youngest had a HUGE MESS with a bad teacher that really messed with her whole class during 4th grade. She needed the peaceful environment of home. Our oldest was homeschooled from 6th grade until she graduated high school. Our youngest was 5th through 8th. Talk about a peaceful home….for us it was the right thing to do. Thanks for the answer….

  3. That mean girls fact makes me sad. I had some of those in my class a few times, and no matter how I tried to change them, they were just mean. I wonder how they turned out?
    I can see Katie tuned out A plus, and you have such a wonderful relationship with her. Loved she wore the BRIDE button all day! Too cute!

  4. Looks like you had a wonderful day! Did they have lots of wedding vendors – like florists, bakeries, etc.? They even have that here in Fresno several times a year. I wasn’t able to go though 😦

  5. My weekend’s ending was brightened by your lovely photos of a place I’ve longed to visit ever since the girl next door went and had dinner atop the space needle the first week it was opened, then came home and told me all about it.
    I really need to get over my jealousy….
