I had soooooo much fun

this last Saturday. I spent the day with a family I love and enjoy a great deal. There were 4 (four) children and NONE (0) of them were mine. They were very well behaved though and we had a great day.
We went to:

There was a fabulous exhibition with video games. From atari to X Box 360, many of the most memorable games were available and the kids were digging it. Well, the one lil girl was not AS thrilled as her brothers so she wanted to go see

the butterfly house, which make me think of a friend of mine. Beautiful lil insects aren't they?
The we took a bus to
PIKE PLACE! I do so love Pike, although I prefer it sans thronging tourists. We had mini-donuts, the little kids got balloon hats, swords and various other creations. It was so hot we took the bus back to the Seattle Center.
Oh, no, I mean it was rainy, the weather was horrible, it always rains in Washington, you would hate it here.
But we played in the fountain anyway, the sprays are programmed to coordinate with the music they are playing.

The kids had a great time, and it was hysterical to watch the people, some cautiously creeping forward in street clothes and getting sprayed any way. Between song, when the spray dies down, it is tradition to go put your hand on the fountain. This is prime time for getting people wet who really didn't come prepared. The fun part is guessing which ones are going to take a look at themselves, think, well, I am wet anyway, I might as well enjoy myself, and which ones will walk stiffly up to sit on the ledge and dry out.

Which are you?

Assuming I'm not wearing white, if I'm wet anyway, I might as well have more fun and cool off.

Lily said...

drives my family crazy that I walk in the rain. Why run?

Sounds like a lovely weekend!

goldennib said...

I'd get wet several times. Sounds like a really fun day.

Candace said...

What a great day! The butterfly is gorgeous.

What kind am I?

In the words of Peter Gabriel, "Get wet, get wet!" :-)

Kyahgirl said...

Sounds like a great day.

I'd be in the fountain :-)

Güggs said...

I'd be one of the few with my clothes off and my gaunch all wet. I'd be the one being taken away by security.

Sar said...

Hmmm. It'd depend on what I'm wearing and how soon I'd be leaving. Not so much a fan of sitting in the car in wet clothes. Yeah, I guess I'm one of those. ;)

Glad you had such a great time.

It sounds like you had a lot of fun playing in Seattle. And for the rain - nice try - I know what the weather has been like lately.

Butterfly house? I LOVE butterfly houses!

And I would be the one humping the dome in the middle where the water shoots out of. (Just in case you were wondering.)

Lime~ You and me, dancing in the fountain, I can see it now.

Kat~ Come join us!

Bare~ To get to the fountain you practically walk under the Needle, but you don't have to go up.


Snavy~ Glad you like it, and you can come dance with us in the spray too.


Damasta~ Come on!

Grunt~ Come visit

Breazy~ So nice to see you! Hope you had a good holiday too and you can definitely come dance with us. There is a great ice cream place not far, we can hit it afterward.

Goldennib~ It really was great fun

Candace~ I would have guessed that about you, no suprises there.

Kyahgirl~ Come dance with us! We can do twirls and stuff, it will be great!

Guggs~ As long as you don't terrorize the children it's all good. Get your groove on!

Sar~ Alright then, you better bring a dry set of clothes with you, cuz you are sooooo getting wet!

Schnoodlepooh~ Shhhhh! I am trying to keep it quiet.

Pants~ You can definitely come play with me then, just mind the children, they come from the fountain, not the sex ed.

Melliferous Pants said...

Yes, I'll keep that in mind.
