Why I Love Thursdays

Thursdays are Tyler's easy day in school, and some lucky weeks he doesn't have class at all. So Thursdays we either spend the day relaxing at home while he studies, or if we have the energy, we have a Seattle adventure. This week it was the latter. We had a big brunch at home and then headed into downtown Seattle.
First, we visited the Columbia Center, which is the tallest building in the state of Washington. It is way taller than the Space Needle and costs only $3-$5 to go to the top, as opposed to $17 for the Space Needle.
We put Jackson up by the window and he looked down and actually got scared. That's why he's crying here.

The garden area in front of the Columbia Center. I love springtime. So pretty.

The downtown library is the coolest library I have ever seen. (I didn't take this picture. I just found it online to show you how amazing the building is.)
Jackson put on a puppet show for us at the library.
It's a good thing Thursdays are so fun for us, because Fridays always seem to go wrong.
