It was such a beautiful day and since we had yet to have a day without rain we decided to get outdoors. After a little online research of Seattle parks we found the Volunteer Park and Conservatory. We started at the conservatory which was so beautiful. We decided to chooses some of our favorite flowers.
Haye liked this one because of the color.
Brent thought that this one looked like alien pods.
This one was fun because the petals are really the leaves just a different color.
This one was Kaitlin's favorite because the hanging flower part is fuzzy.
Aiden picked this one.
This one was my favorite because the smell was amazing. They had the orchid section right as you walk in so you walk into all this green humidity that smells of orchids.
There were these great trees at the park just made for climbing with the trunks split in several different directions. Wish Jen was here with her camera. Such great photo ops just itching for something better than a phone camera :)
There was also a large pond with fish - the kind that freeze and hibernate in the winter and thaw and go on with their lives in the Spring. I can't remember the name of them for the life of me but...they were huge.
There was also a water tower that they have converted into a look out point that has great views and information about Seattle. Haye and I decided we needed a little exercise so we went up and down the stairs 4 times in a row as fast as we can. I guess it says a little about how out of shape I am that I was sore for about 3 days after. sad sad sad.
We stopped and had pizza at a local joint on the way home. All in all it was a great day and so nice to get outside and play!
