A little smiling to start the blog today. Lewis smiles at Jesse. Jesse smiles at Lewis. Who can't use a good smile?
Sunday Dave and I took the Ferry from Bainbridge Island to Seattle. Jesse picked us up and drove us to the Pacific Science Center, where the King Tut exhibit was. We had a bite of lunch then hung around in the
outdoor water courtyard. (I'm sure it has a proper name, but I can't remember it)
We met Cara there, she took a bus from Tacoma just to spend time with us. It was so good to see her.

|Jesse enjoyed playing with the water powered machines|
|so did Dave!|

As we walked out of the museum we realized that it was too early for dinner, so we walked along the city streets to the Olympic Sculpture Park built on an over pass. By the time we were finished, we were all hot and tired and ready for dinner.
|this wasn't part of the garden, but it caught my eye nonetheless. these were steps leading up to the glass Pavilion bldg. designed by I.M. Pei|
|this is the top of a metal tree in the sculpture garden, but the real birds didn't seem to mind!|

|the Brazilian artist used blue paint and a silver ink pen to create this huge, intricate wall. It was exceptional piece for me, such detail...|
