We did our traditional 4th of July trip to the top of the Space Needle followed by our neighbor, Taylor’s grandparents 4th of July party in Burien.  The girls still love the Space Needle, so it’s nice to make a point of visiting the tourist trap once a year.  July 4 is a great time since the weather is generally good and the views from the top are pretty spectacular.

This was the second year we’ve gone to Taylor’s grandparent’s party.  Taylor is the same age as Lydia and Hadley (score for our new neighborhood) and her grandparents live on a small lake just south of Seattle.  The kids swim in the afternoon and there is a great fireworks display from the lake in the evening.  One of the funnier things is that no boats are allowed on the lake, but everyone has detachable “docks” with electric motors so there are always a bunch of docks cruising about the lake.

    I was wondering if the girls saw the
    Weedle when you went to the Needle! What a nice 4th.
